Console size comparison
Sizes are being compared to a 30" TV. Better clear up some space!

So the solution is to find a way to reduce population in Japan. Got any ideas?

It's not overpopulation, just high population density. Very common across Europe and Asia.

First off thanks for the comparison. Didn't realize how big the ps5 is compared to the ps4. Even the XSX is huge.

It's big for a console, but let's not get melodramatic here. It's still smaller than any A/V receiver, and those fit easily in any standard entertainment stand.SpicYMchaggis wrote: ↑ The PS5 is massive, it even dwarfs the original XB1 which was massive.
I think people are going to be legitimately surprised by how big this thing is when they bring it in their home. Thanks to its size and its unique design It's going to stick out like a sore thumb if you can't hide it in an A/V rack.

Once you fit it in your a/v stand you'll forget about it and it won't really matter. But I do think if you have this open under your TV it will really stand out like a sore thumb. Its huge, not really very nice looking but also unique enough that it'll attract a lot of attention.

Also consider Canada Post is going to have a tough time getting these out to everyone on launch. Most posties will likely tag it at the depot and not even attempt delivery due to size and weight.SpicYMchaggis wrote: ↑ Once you fit it in your a/v stand you'll forget about it and it won't really matter.

I just don't think people will realize how truly big this is until they get it into their house and compare it with their other consoles.
I still have an OG Xbox One that I move between rooms occasionally and its absolute unit compared to the Xbox One X/S and the PS4 and this is bigger than that (however that also had a massive powerbrick to deal with)
I think the Series X has a similar problem as its very wide and looks sort of funny on its side because it doesn't have much depth and personally I just don't stand my console up because again it sort of draws some unwanted attention to it.
Anyways none of this stuff really matters all that much to me, its a gaming device first and foremost not a living room decoration but just fun to discuss.

I highly doubt this will come any time soon ... it is built on 7nm chip die and this has just been release this year with AMD Ryzen. They'll have to use IPC to get the transistor numbers down. Still possible with Zen3 and Big Navi ... but with the RTX3000 series shortages, BIG NAVI will probably have to fill some of the PC Video Cards ... supposedly AMD 6000 XT. Maybe this will be the last console before everyone uses the online gaming like Stadia, Geforce Now, PS Now, etc ...PHuth2 wrote: ↑ Let's be honest, they're gonna release a slim at some point and they need to give people a reason to buy it beyond just expanded storage space because it already comes with almost 1 TB. I doubt they go for the mess that is a PS4 vs PS4 Pro again so one of the biggest incentives they can give people is size. This is why I think they made the current one so big. Even look at those white things on the top/bottom, they seem like they add unnecessary size/length to the console compared to the black portion. I don't even think this thing would fit on my sizable desk shelves without a chunk of it sticking out.
