PS4 size sees console dwarfed by Xbox One

A new image comparing the PS4 and Xbox One sizes has revealed Sony’s next-generation console to be a lot smaller than the Microsoft option.

The PS4’s size see the Sony console dwarfed by the Xbox One, which is also taller and just as beefy as the original Xbox 360 console released in 2005.

Considerably slimmer and smaller than the Xbox One, the PS4 is also miniature in comparison to the original beast of a PS3 released in 2006. In fact, some have suggested that the PS4 may not be that much bigger than the Nintendo Wii.

The next-generation size comparison picture appeared courtesy of a Twitter user and reveals just how different the Xbox One and PS4 are in size.

Sony has already released the official specs sheet and size dimensions of its PS4 console. It packs an eight-core x86-64 AMD Jaguar processor, 1.84 teraFLOPS GPU with AMD next-generation Radeon based graphics engine. It has a 500GB harddrive and 8GB of GDDR5 RAM.

Measuring up at approximately 275 x 53 x 305mm, the PS4 weighs 2.8kg and packs Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.

The Xbox One will have a custom Microsoft build eight-core CPU with 8GB of DDR3 RAM and a 500GB hard drive. Microsoft’s console also packs the same AMD GPU but with 32MB of eSRAM. The PS4’s GPU is 50 per cent more powerful though, with 1152 shader processors in comparison to the 768 in the Xbox One.

However, Microsoft has not yet revealed the exact or approximate measurements for the Xbox One, so this size comparison picture has been engineered by working out the console’s dimensions from the console’s various ports.

In light of this of course, the image may not be accurate, but from the PS4 and Xbox One hands-on contact we got at E3 2013, the Microsoft console is definitely beefier than Sony’s offering.

Not only does the Xbox One dwarf the PS4 in size, but in price too. The PS4 price with one DualShock 4 controller has been set at £349 or £398 with the PlayStation Eye camera as well. The Xbox One price is £429 coming complete with the new Xbox One Kinect and a single controller.

The Xbox One release date was revealed during E3, with the console arriving sometime in November. The PS4 will be released sometime in the “holidays 2013” season.
