PlayStation 5 live photos show how huge the console is

PlayStation 5 surprised gamers with its appearance. Unlike Microsoft, Sony decided to move away from the classic design by giving the box a V-shape. What the company has not yet revealed is the PS5’s dimensions, but the gap was closed by the US Federal Communications Commission (via VGC).

The agency posted raw images of the box next to a dedicated ruler. So you can estimate the size of the PlayStation 5 not only by eye.

PlayStation 5 dimensions (horizontal):

PS5: 390mm x 104mm x 260mm (width, thickness, length)
PS5 Digital Edition: 390mm x 92mm x 260mm (Width, Thickness, Long)

If we compare the console with the PlayStation 4 Pro, then the fifth version of the “game station” will still take up more shelf space. The Pro version is 295 mm wide, 327 mm long, and 55 mm thick. As for the weight of the devices, a regular PlayStation 5 with a Blu-ray drive weighs 4.5 kg and a “diskless” PS5 – 3.9 kg. For comparison, the PlayStation 4 Pro weighs 3.3 kg.

As a reminder, PlayStation 5 owners will receive an 8-core Zen 2 Cores 3.5 GHz variable frequency processor. Responsible for the graphics is a custom RDNA 2 with 36 computing units with a capacity of 10.28 teraflops. Sony’s European business head Simon Rutter said the company has tweaked the cooling system to make it quieter. In addition, according to rumors, the PS5 received a more expensive cooling system.
