Check out these images that show a PS4 vs. Xbox One console size comparison.
PS4 is half the size less vents Microsoft is horrible at making hardware.
Xbox one looks like a small air conditioner "So big, because it is full of ...."
LOL spit my drink out! Actually it looks more like a humidifier :D
I never really realized how closely the Xbox One resembles my cable box until now.
PS4 is HALF THE SIZE OF XBOX ONE??? LMFAO!!!! Woooow just wow. -__- What makes it even more sad is the fact that the Xbox One is 50% LESS POWERFUL. http://gamer.blorge.com/201... http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... EDIT: Weren't there rumors of the Xbone having heat problems too??? Good thing GDDR5 produces less heat. lol
Lets be realistic you guys, it looks more like a VCR......one of the early big ones.
Its a Biblical issue people... David vs Goliath! Complete with the scene of 'People's Savior' vs 'greedy tyrant' HaHaHa!
i wonder how the xbone buyers gonna carry that home... better bring a dolley. on a serious note, the difference is quite significant.
Microsoft once again shows why they're a software company first and a hardware company... well last. The xbox was big, clunky and ugly. The 360 looked ok, but had hardware failures that made China blush. The Xbone (pronounced ex bone, how it will forever be called) looks like my old VCR from 1992. For a second I didn't know whether to put a disc in it or put my feet up on it, or rest my drink on it lol

@Sonic200 Ps4 is 50% more powerful, Xbone isn't 50% less powerful. The latter suggests a 1:2 power ratio. The former (a fact) is a 2:3 power ratio.
Look forward to it sounding like you have a jet engine under your TV, PS4 is going to be te same as the PS3 Phat and only keep cool if you have 6 feet of free space around the console. Stick it in a TV cabinet and you're screwed.
@fuzzy: Are you really trying to take a dig at the PS3/PS4 for heat dissipation? Really? I won't even touch that... it's just too easy.
And I thought it's supposed to be the next water cooler. I guess you can't believe all you hear, huh?
@Shwanky Well his name IS fuzzyLogix after all... What were you expecting :)
Just put a door in the xbone and you've got a new room
There is a pretty solid rumor that MS is having problems with eSRAM yield. There is also the rumor they are going to under-clock the SoC because of this. They have chosen to go with a big motherhonking fan on top of the SoC and make the case with whole panel sections as open grate slots. The whole combo looks like nothing but heat problems. The rumor is made even worse by the news that Gamestop has 1/4 the pre-order numbers for the XBone compared to the PS4, indicating production problems with the XBone. The PS4 size plus lack of huge fan vents indicates Sony may be using liquid cooling heatpipes instead of a giant fan. More expensive but much more efficient and reliable. There are going to be a lot of ooh's and aah's when the case of the PS4 gets opened up to see what is inside. It will make the insides of the XBone look like it's already 10 years old in comparison.
Having AMD parts in small space is never a good idea.
It's a water cooler
"agua fría" lol....that's a kick a55 feature, come summer time!!!
It's a water heater.
lol, check this out http://i.imgur.com/zOWrYhB....
wow and people were actually hating on the ps4's design.
Their both alwful designs but the PS4 is better out of of them but its hardly a looker .
Agree with @Condemmedman. Really don't understand Sony's need for unnecessary angles. I would prefer the XBone design but with the size of the PS4. Or just the PS4 with no silly slanted angles. It's not only kids that buy these consoles you know!
It's hard to compare a gaming console with a giant brick of obsidian. What the hell? PS4 makes me think dirty thoughts when I touch my current controller . . . I'm gonna cheat on that bitch with a new slender, darker, dirtier whore that does things all the right way . . . she's got the "moves" too . . . bwahahahaha. XBO looks like that ugly chick who stole your virginity while you were drunk at a party and then bragged about it to all her friends ruining your reputation. (True story).
"stole your virginity" the story of Mankind.
Nice......You projected a vivid image in my mind. +1
I lost it at 'true story' LMFAOOOOOOOOO
I'm sorry for you.
@pimpschitz lol I think the Ps4 has some unique design elements, but i do like the XB1's simplicity.
Don't get me wrong I love XB. I have a 360 sitting in my living room and no PS3. (I do have a PSone however . . . FF 7-9 baby). I'm not a fan of the DRM, I think digital games are dangerous, and having the console and the games to plug in and play is not a hard thing to do. XB revealed this magic brick that literally has to be connected to the internet to play ANY type of game. No offense but that sounds pretty simple (minded) to me. If XBO was revealed, with games first, OPTIONAL features like the kinect or TV functions without the DRM . . . then it would actually be a console war. MS made a console like a PC. Period, and that's not exactly what gamers want. If MS didn't do DRM, then I would have a tougher time deciding which console I'm going to get NexGen, however they DID and the PS4 will be sitting in my living room . . . that sexy piece of eye candy that I can't get enough of.
@pimpschitz Please don't compare that travesty of an Orwellian trojan device to my PC. Its just not true.
Don't worry man, we are here for you.
@YoungKingDoran Thanks dude, *sob. We are going to get through this. Where the hell are my pants...
I wonder if the Xbox will also have a power brick...
That is the power brick. lol
i think it does the pictures released by wired that show the inside of the XBone have no evidence of an internal powersupply contradicting what we were already told by ms there was also a picture of what possibly maybe the powerbrick and it's absolutely massive. i'll try find pictures for you http://www.ign.com/boards/t... this pic shows what it will actually look like http://www.neogaf.com/forum... in these pictures you can see the inside proof that there is nothing to supply power there http://www.wired.com/gadget... a closer look in the right pic at the top right and very top of left pic http://i.imgur.com/yPNDgek.... with regards to the size of the console people have estimated that the ps4 is 65% smaller in size to the XBone some are sayiing its 39% smaller
PS4 is half the size AND more powerful, along with that, it comes with the same sized Hard Drive as the XBOX ONE (500GB). Sony are great at creating hardware.
And PS4 HDD is upgradable, this means, if the main HDD fails, it can be replaceable.
This http://cdn-static.zdnet.com... http://www.ps3hax.net/pictu... http://mygaming.co.za/news/... http://img1.lesnumeriques.c... Wow Microsoft really built them like pc's didn't they.
I actually didnt like the PS4 much when I first saw it. I thought, eww. But its really growing on me. The tapered front and back, the sunken shadowline and the sexy blue stripe. Please tell me that lights up like the PS2's hypnotic blight light. Everyone used to comment on that. The front of it looks like a camero or something.
Just like the PS2 it looks better vertical. . Also to it looks like a futuristic PS2.
There was a light mentioned on one of the fact sheets sony released, cant find it now but will keep looking
It's the ps2 on steroids. I love it.
Yup, it lights up.
ps4 is the true sequel to ps2 just like battlefield 4 will be the true sequel to battlefield 2.
Ps4 kinda look like laptops.. this is good thing though we all know laptops are more efficient, compact , powerful and sleek..
Big and ugly Microsoft hardware...just like last two gens
Really??? The original PS3 looked like a george foreman grill and was larger than the xbox.
To me the Xbone looks like a DVR and a VCR had a baby, and a betamax and first gen xbox had a baby. And by some miracle those two babys meet and fucked. Thats what we get Lol I kid. Seriously though ps4 looks sexy.
Ps4 looks like a tetris block lol
yeah PS4 looks nicer and it takes practically no space, the xbox1 is too big like a VCR.
I'm ok with the Xbox looking like it does. I'm not one much for an eccentric piece of "art" near my television. PS4 is very compact which is attractive, but I'm not a fan of the angles of it. Both are an upgrade in terms of aesthetic to me from last Gen.
Don't say anything positive in any way towards the X1, the Sony fanboys will flag you as spam, and bubble you down for trolling. Giving credit where it's due is something not appreciated here when it's credit Microsoft earned, even if they make big mistakes.
The Xbox 1 likes about the size of my Sony hi-fi VHS player purchased in 1992. Thats how far behind the times MS is. Oh and a testament to Sony's well built hardware that 21 year old Sony VHS player still works like the day I got it. Now granted that was a $300 unit two decades ago, kinda expensive but point is I trust Sony's hardware, always have.
What a Box!
MS claims the the XB1 Wil be whisper quiet. We shall see. Do keep in mind that games will play off the hard drive so there may be some truth to this.
So these are just computer mock ups.... How do we even know if this is accurate or not? There isn't even a story that goes with the pictures saying how they got the dimensions or anything... ??? I'm not saying it's bogus, I'm just saying we have no evidence to indicate that it is accurate either.
More then likely they used the dimensions in the fact sheets provided by each company.
Microsoft doesn't design nor make it's hardware, they outsorce it to outside manufactures. MS is software. Sony on the other hand is hardware everything, they design and build everything from from ground up, but software needs to be outsourced also. I don't get how they could so ingeniously get all that cool tech in such a small package. I'd love to see the motherboard soon, to see how they pack all that gddr5 memory on board after reading only 512mb per stack come on pc graphic cards.
But because of the size of the fan they have put in it will definitely be alot quieter it's the trade off you get with airflow.
True story. I upgraded my desktop pc with 120mm fans over the 80mm ones because they are more quiet. I don't get why that is, but Ive searched the decibel levels and larger fans are more quiet. But I don't know what fan sizes these consoles are using.
Dont forget, the xboner needs an external power brick too. lol
@Sonic200 Ram does not run hot at all and faster ram has no benefit in games, I am againist the xbox one but saying GDDr5 ram is better than ddr3 ram for gaming is not true at all it is equal except maybe slightly faster loading times, the only heat problem would be caused by poor air flow to take the heat from the cpu/gpu out.
