Xbox One vs PS4 size comparison

34 posts in this topic

The Xbox looks like a Halo Auxiliary type of box. As if it was meant for a Spartan to carry.

Plus the power brick for the Xbox One

Well it's going in the home theater setup so as long as it's around the same size it's no problem.  It's not a portable. :P

I've been dying to see this comparison. I always thought the PS4 looked small or the Xbox One looked huge but holy F? :blink: That's a massive difference! :o

 

Not that i'm gonna be carrying it around but still... that thing is huge!

 

Thanks!

Also, where are these shots from?  That white box is actually a QR code identifying the machine which means it probably shouldn't be shown.

I'm sure they could've made it smaller but MS wanted to play it safe with heat/airflow and so on.  It's not that big though, and neither is the power brick.  I think some people like to over-exaggerate things.

I was kind of thinking the same thing myself, better ventilation and all that, both probably get pretty toasty.  I'll pick hardware durability over saving a few inches any day.  Same reason I never build gaming rigs in tiny cases, hurts the airflow. (Never mind the fingers.)  That said, personally doesn't matter to me.. as long as it fits on the shelf, who cares.

It's not that the One is that huge (same size as PS3 Fat I think).. It's that the PS4 is in a nice small form factor.

 

The X-One design was definitely due to fear.  They are trying to make sure that the RRoD doesn't rear it's ugly head again...

I don't think it's as big as people think it is, the PS4 is pretty small in it's own right.  I think we should compare it to older systems that people have already to get a better idea.  I think the XB1 is around the same size as the original 360 and PS3 for example.

It's funny... The PS4 is a beautiful design... Very beautiful...

 

The PS4 screams: LOOK AT ME, I'M BEAUTIFUL!!! YOU BETTER LOOK!!!!........ :)

 

The Xbox One says... I'm cute, But I don't want any attention... at all...  :|

Really?  I think the PS4 is ugly.

 

Also the Xbox One isn't huge (you could tell as such in the unboxing video) - the PS4 is just smaller.  Shouldn't be a big deal to anyone.

Touch?! The Xbox One will have smaller portable external storage whereas the PS4 will require the entire console to be dragged to your friends if you want to play your locally installed games at their house when they already have the console.

They are both beautiful to me...  I just wonder about heat from the PS4. small form factor and all...

 

I think the One is a beautiful piece of kit... very beautiful...

So when external drives become enabled, you will be able to bring the drive with you and when you log into the console you don't have to re-download the game?... thats amazing if true.

well to be fair, MS didn't go after asthetics. If this is "supposed to be" an all around livingroom package, you have to design it to be asthetically pleasing that someone wants it to be in their livingroom. UNLESS!, they designed it for little johnny's room.

the unit size is not such a big deal for me

 

 

new xbox controller is too small.   last one was chunky and i did not like it.  new one is amazing! but after a while you realize that your fingers are tired, since for a large hand, it is super wierd

 

ps3 controller was slim but fit ok, and with new one's longer handles it looks like a much better deal for me.

 

 

too bad, as xbox one controller is AMAZING (size of grip handle is the ONLY thing i did not like)
