Sony’s PlayStation 5 hasn’t really appeared in live photos, rendering it difficult to measure the size of the console. However, the overall game console has finally made a real-world appearance in a filing at Taiwan’s NCC (via The Verge) – and it’s clear the PS5 isn’t designed for small cabinets. While Sony hasn’t been shy about mentioning the PS5’s 15.4-inch length (or height), 10.2-inch depth and 4.1-inch thickness, those dimensions were put by the NCC’s photos into context. You’ll need to make room because of this beast, whether you’re purchasing the Digital Edition or the disc-based model.
As we described inside our specs comparison, this will function as largest console up to now. It’s much bigger overall compared to the Xbox Series X (or even as thick), and larger than legendary behemoths just like the original Ps3 3 still, the initial Xbox, and the Xbox One. Sony also hasn’t included the stand or the “largest projection” of the PS5’s body into its figures.
You’re not investing in a console based mainly on size probably. Game libraries, ecosystems, and price likely matter more. Yet, that is something to take into account if you prefer a next-gen system but don’t have much free space.
