PS5 vs. Xbox Series X vs. Nintendo Switch: Illustrations by the Japanese 3DCG character designer Kei Sawada show the size comparison of the next-gen bolides. The differences to TV sets, the Nintendo Switch or the PS4 and game packaging become clear. The pictures therefore give a good impression of how much space you should plan on your TV sideboard or your wall unit.

Size comparison of PS5 and Xbox Series X in new illustrations: The Japanese character designer Kei Sawada created 3D models of the next-gen consoles from Sony and Microsoft and shows them in relation to current consoles. The 3D drawings are true to scale and give a good impression of the dimensions of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X or Series S. In addition to the Nintendo Switch, Sawada also compares the upcoming consoles with the PlayStation 4. Just as interesting: the size comparison with TV sets of different sizes and the game packaging.

During the PS5 presentation, Sony gave the final dimensions for the PlayStation 5 (buy now ) known. The PS5, including the disc drive, measures 390mm x 104mm x 260mm (W x H x D) and weighs 4.5kg. The digital edition has a size of 390mm x 92mm x 260mm (W x H x D) and weighs 3.9kg. The Xbox Series X, on the other hand, is 151mm x 151mm x 301mm. The Xbox Series S has the dimensions of 275mm x 151mm x 63.5mm. The differences to the Nintendo Switch and the game packaging become clear. We show you some of the pictures in the following gallery.
