Sony just announced a redesigned PS5 that’s smaller, lighter, thinner, and available with a detachable disc drive. The original PS5 is a beast, the largest gaming console in modern history, so I was curious how much smaller the new model could be compared to the old one.
I will not leave you in suspense. I left the measurements for the new and old PS5 on CompareSizes.com and here’s how they compare:
So overall, the new PS5s are still great. But it looks like they won’t take up as much space in your media center as the original models.
Just for fun, I also connected Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S to CompareSizes.com:
The redesigned PS5 will go on sale in November, Sony announced Tuesday. If you get the digital edition, you can purchase a Blu-ray disc drive after the fact for $79.99. They also come with 1TB of storage instead of the 825GB that the original models offered.
