YouTuber Spends £50,000 Making World's Largest Functioning PS5 Console

A YouTuber has spent $70,000 (£50,418) building the world's largest functional PS5, for whatever reason.

It's 10-feet tall, and - as the previous sentence suggests - it actually works and plays games in the same way that a normal one does.

Why exactly you'd want to do something like this is beyond the comprehension of us mere mortals, but it's a fairly safe guess to assume 'clout' had something to do with it.

The YouTuber in question is called ZHC, and he has a channel geared towards large and extravagant giveaways, as well as zany and unexpected projects such as this one.

The machine itself stands a good four feet taller than most people, and weighs in at 500 pounds.

It also features a suitably gigantic controller as well, because what else are you supposed to use to play the world's largest PS5?

The video, which was entitled 'I Spent 100 Hours Customizing The World's Largest PS5 ($70,000), featured a competition between ZHC and his team members in which they both attempted to paint one side of the giant console.

If ZHC lost the challenge, he agreed to give each member of his team a PS5, donate the remaining PS5s to charity, and give away the world's largest one 'to a random person'.

In the end - spoiler alert if you're planning to watch the vid on YouTube - he won, but still agreed to give away 100 PS5 consoles to his subscribers.

This type of thing is pretty much what ZHC gets up to over on his channel, as in the past he's done things like giving away a number of customised iPhones to kids, as well as surprising some online celebrity faces with customised gifts of their own.

However, this might be your best shot at actually getting your hands on a PS5 console at the minute, because the average person is still facing quite a lot of difficulty in getting one due to a shortage.

It's hardly the same as a water or food shortage, but Sony has responded to stock being low and said it hasn't been able to keep up with the exceptional demand for their next-gen console.

The company vowed it will 'do everything in [its] power' in order to make more units and get them out to people.

However, they will be considerably smaller than the model built up by ZHC, in case you're holding out for a massive one.
