New PlayStation 5 Photos Show Off What An Absolute Unit It Really Is

Oh lawd, they comin. Sony have released more official images of the upcoming PlayStation 5 console, presumably with the hopes of showing off what sleek and seductive little bundles of technology they are. In reality, people are completely enraptured by the absolute density of the thing.

Posted as part of a Taiwanese product filing (via Eurogamer) the images show the unit laying horizontally with some rulers added so you can get an idea of the sheer size of it. Check them out below.

For their part, Sony has given the official dimensions of the PS5 as 390mm (15.4") height, 260mm (10.24") deep, and 104mm (4.09") wide. This doesn't, however, include the size of the console's baseplate, which is recommended in order to keep it from toppling over, and presumably causing earthquakes, tsunamis, and overall mass devastation.

Naturally, these images have prompted the more artistic corners of the internet to mock up some pictures of what the PS5 will look like in your home in all its chonky glory, and you might want to start clearing some space if you're not planning on building an extension just to house the thing.

As you can see, having a decent sized TV, a PS5, an Xbox Series X and a Nintendo Switch is going to be... quite a commitment to your entertainment real estate, to say the least.

If, like me, you live in a modestly sized flat in an apartment building, you may want to start thinking about inventive ways in which to comfortably house all these beasts. For example, do you really need a washing machine? Could you feasibly get a PS5 installed in its place? What has the microwave done for you lately? Might be time to upgrade it to an Xbox Series X. Perhaps you've a roommate who's unable to hit 60fps at full 4k resolution. Sorry Jeremy, but the future is now, and I need to play more games.
