The PS5 has arrived in the editorial offices. On the first photos and Unboxings A size comparison follows: In the video placed below this message, you take a look at the PlayStation 5 in a standing position compared to other consoles. The creators of the video place the PlayStation 4, Xbox One X and Nintendo Switch next to it to illustrate the size. Retro consoles such as Sega Dreamcast are also used for a size comparison.

The digital edition of the PlayStation 5 measures 39 x 9.2 x 26 centimeters and is therefore a tad smaller.
