New PS5 Images Show Size, How Stand Will Attach
The PlayStation 5 is set to be an absolute behemoth, and though it isn’t as wide as the Xbox Series X, the PS5 is quite a bit taller than Microsoft’s system. Taiwan’s National Communications Commission has published several images showing the console next to rulers so you can see just how much space it’s going to take up on your shelf, assuming you managed to order one. Spoiler: It’s a lot.
The PS5 is just under 19 inches tall, and it’s about one foot wide. It’s certainly not going to take up the same space as a computer tower, but it could be too large for certain living room setups.
The images show far more than just the size, however, as we also see how the system’s stand attaches to the console horizontally. It has a few hooks on one side that will latch onto the console, ensuring it doesn’t slip, and there is also a lip that it will sit up against on the stand. A USB-C to USB-A cable included in the package is fairly standard, and the power cable looks identical to the one used on the PS4 now.
