While we eagerly await the official reveal of the PS4’s dimensions at the upcoming E3 press conference in June, here’s how we came up with the toughest competitor’s physical console size. The approximate size of the Xbox One was calculated by using the width of the USB port on the back and side of the console. You can then extrapolate the total dimensions of the box and if you thought it looked rather big, you weren’t wrong. It’s actually both wider and longer than the original Xbox 360 and also longer than the PS3 Fat.
UPDATE: Added real-life images + PS4.
beautiful work, thank you!
Can we get real photo comparison. That would be awesome!
I added one with real photos too! Thanks guys!
Can you add the original XBOX to the picture? A decade ago it was considered humongous, but now it looks quite moderate in comparison.
Good point! I’ll try and do that asap!
How about adding both PS2 designs and the original Xbox too?
Great idea, I’ll do that!
And the PS3 “Super Slim”!
If adding PS2, then add both PS2 and PS2 Slim.
Just a thought, but it may be that it’s to have the same footprint as a standard DVD player, satellite/cable box, etc. to make it ‘fit’ in the living room better?
PS4 dimensions (official data from Sony): 275x53x325 mm WxHxD
Nice catch! I’ll add it asap!
Small mistake, it’s Width x Height x Length (not Depth)! Sorry about that!
Hehe yep, I noticed that, what did you think of the PS4 design btw? It’s around the same size as the PS3 first slim, which sounds like a good size to me.
I like the design, both on PS4 and Xbox ONE. To be honest, I never was a big fan of any of the PS3 designs (I own the first one myself + 360 slim).
Both of these new consoles seems to fit better in a TV-table or media “rack”.
you should add the New super slim PS3 and Xbox 360
Xbox 360 is already in the image, both the original “fat” version, and the Slim one. Did you perhaps mean the original Xbox? In that case, PS2 and PS2 Slim should be added too…
But yes, the PS3 Super Slim should have been listed. According to articles online, it’s “11.4” × 2.3″ × 9″ (29 × 6 × 23 cm)” That’s Width (viewed from the front) x Height x Length (depth from the front to the back)
@Erik – Those dimensions are correct. I checked Sony’s PlayStation website here – http://playstation.com/ps3system/#select-tab-specifications
I think you may have the PS4s length and width the wrong way round. I’m assuming that the length has been used as the distance between the front (disk tray) and rear (power/video sockets) – these are the slanted areas on the PS4 – and the width is the distance between the left and the right ends (assuming the previous to be true).
The top down image you have of the PS4 should be rotated 90 degrees counter clockwise to fall in line with the other images showing the disk tray at the bottom of the image.
The numbers are as given out by Sony, and published on a Norwegian tech page as an image, with “Photo: Sony” as caption.
I partly agree on the last part of your comment though, the top-down image should be rotated 90 degress, but COUNTER clockwise! If you see the image that’s right from the front, the darker/polished part is on the LEFT side of the top.
You’re absolutely correct, I’ve updated the image as you suggested, thanks!
Can you include the Xbox 360 E dimensions?
It seems that the new 360 E is just a cosmetic change, not an actual change in size:
“The new model is known as the Xbox 360 E, where as the previous one is called the Xbox 360 S. And apart from a model name change and cosmetic case update, there is very little different between the two consoles”
I can’t find the size of the new model announced at E3. It looked completely different so it’s strange if its the same exact size imo.
Xbox 360E dimensions
10.38 x 10 x 2.63 inches
26.3652 x 25.4 x 6.6802 cm
Why are the Xboxes upside down?
Any word on the kinect 2.0 size and dimensions
I was wondering the same thing. Cant find that info anywhere.
I noticed this chart is not complete, and yet no one bothred noting the Wii an Wii-u are not on this.
