PS5 size comparisons suggest it’s larger than Xbox Series X and PS4
Fans create mock-ups to compare consoles
Unofficial PlayStation 5 size comparisons have shown how Sony’s newly-unveiled hardware compares to other consoles.
According to size comparisons created based on the PS5’s Blu-ray drive, PS5 will be significantly taller than both Xbox Series X and PS4 Pro.
In a reveal stream watched by more than three million people on Thursday, PlayStation boss Jim Ryan called the PS5 hardware “our most striking console design yet.”
The hardware features a two-toned design of black and white, similar to the DualSense controller which was unveiled earlier this year.
PlayStation announced on Thursday that a Digital Edition PlayStation 5 will also be available at launch, which sacrifices the Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive, likely for a lower price point. According to Sony, the experience on both versions of PS5 will otherwise be the same.
PlayStation announced a roster of first-party PS5 games in Thursday’s event including Gran Turismo 7, Marvel Spider-Man Miles Morales, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart a Demon’s Souls remake and Horizon Zero Dawn 2.
Prominent third-party games also debuted on PS5, including Resident Evil 8, Hitman 3 and new IPs from Capcom and Square Enix. In all, more than 25 games were shown for PlayStation 5 during the event.
