Next-Generation Consoles Sized-Up [Image depicting console size comparison]

Many of Electronic Theatre’s regular readers have been enquiring about the size of the next-generation consoles. Many images have been revealed so far, but this means little when delivered without any comparison. Electronic Theatre has listened to these demands, and delivered the goods with a direct comparison between Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. (Industry, PS3, PS4, Tech, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

PS4 looks tiny... not a bad thing but just so small in comparison. The One on the other hand doesn't look quite so massive compared to PS3 and 360 but it lacked the depth shot for full comparison (which is what looked like biggest change).

At least I know I should still have room for both new consoles as they balance each other out ;) Plus they don't contrast so much this time which is also a plus.

yes but the power brick for the XBone is absolutely massive http://www.neogaf.com/forum... its bigger than the xbox one controller

I like how both look, ps4 slick edges, X1 classy home theater look.
LightofDarkness  +   712d ago
If you built your home theater in 1998, I suppose.
Rhaigun  +   712d ago
Those are all prototypes, and the real power brick is inside the Xbone. That's why its so big.
Blackdeath_663  +   712d ago
@Rhaigun
no its not inside the XBone the photos released by wired is evidence that it is not inside the console http://www.wired.com/images... http://digiex.net/attachmen... tell me where do you see the powersupply fit in there? how could you possibly say it's in the console itself looking at those pictures?

The Xbox One hardware is over-heating; so they had to try to compensate with a large fan.

Unfortunately, the hardware is still suffering. Word is that the GPU will be further downgraded. Yikes!

dude...where are the usbs on the Xbox One?? O__o
CoLD FiRE  +   712d ago
Two in the back and one on the left side when you're facing the console.
titletownrelo  +   712d ago
REALLY hope there wont be heating issues on the PS4. The PS4 only has vents on the back, while the Xbox One has vents on the top and side.

Uh-oh spaghettios
NewZealander  +   712d ago
im actually impressed by how small the ps4 is, but in saying that both consoles look slick, great modern designs, i probably like the X1 look better but im giving ps4 the edge just because they made it so compact!

and with both consoles coming out at such good prices i cant wait to get both!
NeoTribe  +   711d ago
Im not understanding how the x1 looks great at all. It liderally looks like it could have came out in the 90s. They went with the most mediocre, rehashed, boring design they could. Not to mention its huge. Tech is suppost to get smaller not bigger.
kevco33  +   712d ago
People have been raving about the size of The One but it's not actually that big. The PS4 however, looks about the same size as a PS3 slim.
mushroomwig  +   712d ago
Well people made fun of the PS3 being so big and the Xbox is even bigger than that. O_O

I just want to know why it has to be so big to begin with.
irepbtown  +   712d ago
Then there's the power brick... http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
NeloAnjelo  +   712d ago
I know right... Its huge and as mentioned the huge power brick.

Any bet they may still had hadware issues?
SecondSon  +   712d ago
To make sure it doesn't overheat this time and to make it quiet by using slow but big fans.

I trust that Sony won't have any issues because they know how to built durable hardware but its just fascinating how they packed everything into that little thing :D

So what will PS4 Slim be like? :/

Don't forget Kinect to!.

Nice!

As Long As There Are No Heating Issues.
Brazz  +   712d ago
can't agree more...
madduey  +   712d ago
These pics aren't to scale lol I can guarentee the new Xbox is way bigger than that!! Ffs look at the size of kinect!! Lmfaoooooo
rainslacker  +   712d ago
I don't think they're to scale either...Or at least the PS4 isn't. Since the disc slot for the PS4 is on the left side of the console(while laying down), the width is obviously too small to fit into that space compared to the other ones.

Also the released widths(laying flat), widths of the PS4 and X1(estimated) are only about 1/2" different.

madduey  +   712d ago
They'll be a proper comparison made up over the next few days . Both the ps4 and the xbone are bigger than this pics making out. But the Xbox is one useless fat cunt of a brick!!..
madduey  +   712d ago
@ESG: PlayStation/Xbox size comparisons. Thoughts? http://t.co/SB1L7ww4Vt
This seems legit.. As I said xbone is a mahoosive beast!!
rainslacker  +   712d ago
That looks more appropriate to me mad. And yeah, it is quite large. I measured my stereo reciever and it's only slightly 1" wider and 2" deeper and about twice the height, so it seems they're making this to fit in with the rest of your home theater components. Not really a bad thing, but nowadays those electronics are almost never consistent unless you buy into a particular brand line.

that thing of size, i can see that X-1, problably, have a Power supply inside de box... and Ps4, well it's very small considering the power that is inside! My bet goes for a Power supply outside the box, i only hope they don't give us a Huge power supply, like that of Xbox 360...

waltercross  +   711d ago
Are you referring to the PS4 or Xbox One?. The PS3 Uses a power cable like a computer. I'm assuming the PS4 Would to.
Brazz  +   711d ago
my english is very poor than in short:

Ps4 > outside power supply, like 360 and WiiU! this made the console small.

X-1 > inside power supply,like ps3! this made the console big as hell!

waltercross  +   711d ago
ahhh, I Get it. From what I Understand though is the PS4 Does not use a power supply. I Believe It'll use a power cord like the PS3. But I get what you're saying.
AmkOwns  +   712d ago

Rob_From_GopRant  +   712d ago
With the comparison pics - the ps4 is actually built pretty nicely. The Xbox One looks larger then ps3, its huge. What do you expect guys - Sony has been doing hardware for decades and Microsoft is primarily a software company.
NeloAnjelo  +   712d ago
PS4 Sweet
LoveOfTheGame  +   712d ago
Japan is just gonna eat up that tiny PS4.
SecondSon  +   712d ago
They love small things!
Deku-Johnny  +   712d ago
I'd like to see how big the PS4 is compared to the Wii U so I know which one will be sitting on top of the other by the end of the year.
xxV0rschlaghammer  +   712d ago
Who the hell stacks game consoles? And people wonder why consoles overheat and fail. lol
Deku-Johnny  +   711d ago
I've always stacked consoles and never had any problems like that. Consoles are more likely to overheat from more design than being stacked. Just look at the 360.
WeaseL  +   712d ago
Just think how big the PS4 slim will be

the xbone looks so... bloated.
It's just ugly, generic and boring. Just a bland box.

Really surprised at how small the PS4 is.
Red_Devilz  +   712d ago
To be honest, with the giant doo doo M$ had with DRM and other $hit, I would buy PS4 even if it would have looked like a trash can.
DivineAssault  +   712d ago
PS$ looks damn good to me.. IDK why ppl think its ugly.. I think its awesome laying flat.. Standing isnt my thing but its not oversized & its modern.. Good with me
Kyur4ThePain  +   712d ago
Sorry, but in my eyes the PS3 fat was a gorgeous beast.
RedDevils  +   711d ago
and mine still running like a beast :)
danthebios  +   712d ago
Ps4,me like :)
S2Killinit  +   711d ago
Sony is good at designing hardware, I think those huge vents in the back allow for massive air filtration which enables them to pack so much power in such a tiny form.
