“Meme-ishly oversized, gaming console”

ID: hr305hm

I got the Xbox a month ago and it looks big, and I'm having to rearrange stuff to keep the vent clear.

That ps5 makes it look small!!

ID: hr37vpv

That vent is like a heater too, when you have a game like Halo causing it to really work.

ID: hr3bctj

I have the ps5 and it's a damn giant!

Barely fits on my shelf where my ps4 fit perfectly.

I got the Series S because of how small it is. I've been gaming in hotels lugging around one One S. The Series S is wonderfully small, it gets put in my laptop bag with my electronics.

Edit to add: am flight attendant.

I expected the Xbox x to be bigger based on the photos tbh. The fact that you can put it sideways helps

I have a PS5 and Series S. The PS5 is ridiculous. lol. It's like an alienware PC build on my entertainment stand. I am more surprised at how small the Series S was though. It's adorable lol.

ID: hr3ludo

I bought the Series S at launch. It's the perfect size, no regrets.

whoever wrote that, fucking genius

The thing is rather ridiculously oversized. Looks good, but kinda massive.

ID: hr34fqa

You can tell that the PS5 gave some Ikea designers a hard time trying to fit it.

ID: hr342t8

Seems quaint now that the size of the original Xbox was once a meme.

Holy fuck that retro penny arcade.

I remember coming home from 9th grade and booting up my modem to read Gamespy's The Daily Victim, Penny Arcade, and Megatokyo after school.

The PS5 is actually bigger than the OG Xbox. Kinda hilarious.

ID: hr3i1ke

I had no clue how fucking huge the PS5 was until I visited a friend who had one.

I knew it was big from memes at the time, but it's ginormous for a console. Takes me back to the PS2 slim days...

Bet they'd be all gone when I go in. Just like the real thing.

ID: hr3bx3d

You can buy them for 3x their price from scalpers online.

ID: hr3g14k

Thinking ill just message scalpers, make them drive out to locations only to not show up and waste their time.

Having just been to Ikea, the fake console boxes are there, but the actual furniture you pick out isn’t available in the warehouse on the bottom floor because of supply chain issues.

ID: hr3kjw9

All of the popular bookcases and tv stands are out of stock. 🙁

I was at Ikea a few days ago. they had actual xbox 360s chained to the tv consoles and such. no power supplies and they were probably red ringed but i was quite surprised.

ID: hr3jgfk

This is how you know it's an old Ikea!

ID: hr4fggw

I’ve noticed that a lot in IKEA before. They like to gut old electronics and then use them in the store displays. I’ve seen plenty of noticeably light Xbox 360s in that store, as well as some old VCRs

5 : Anonymous2022/01/03 12:33 ID: hr2dqqp

and this is where i'd put my new gen console, IF I COULD BUY ONE...

ID: hr2mkzh

The box is the only thing you can have. You are allowed to close your eyes and pretend you’re playing

Nintendo: "You've got a license for that cardboard son?"

ID: hr3brl2

Damn Dinkleberg has been scalping all the consoles!!!

ID: hr2n94z

Will I still have this TV stand by the time I get a PS5?

The PS5 is so much bigger than I thought.

ID: hr3cy39

They didn’t get very creative with their hardware design, it’s kinda tried and true standard, so the size was necessary for the cooling system to be relatively quiet. Probably a good trade off. Though not as creative as the Xbox design with its split motherboard. The Xbox is densely packed, no unnecessary volume (and it is quieter to boot).

The Xbox is densely packed, no unnecessary volume (and it is quieter to boot).

So no unnecessary volume in both senses!

i wonder who will steal these

My god those are big consoles (he says with a gaming PC over twice the size)

ID: hr2gerq

That playstation may as well be an alienware

ID: hr3pbae

My PC is literally the size of a mini fridge. But man is it aesthetically pleasing, especially with the dual wc loops.

I think it's cute they think any of us can get our hands on a PS5

ID: hr3876g

I’m in Canada and honestly having a ps5 is no big deal big those mf Xbox? Can’t even find them online

ID: hr2xve9

As someone with a ps5 and a new house to furnish i rather appreciate this.

ID: hr2z85l

Ahh, we found one of IKEA's target demographic!!

ID: hr3dttp

Woah, what’s next?

You don’t have student loans? Have a good relationship with your parents? Short commute to work?

I love how they make fun of stupid units

I can’t tell if the Xbox Series X is smaller than I thought or if the PS5 is absolutely gigantic. I mean I know people have been saying it’s big all along but the Series X is absolutely tiny in comparison and I was under the impression that that thing was pretty huge.

On the other hand now I know I can go to IKEA to find out how big they are, because there’s still a pretty much zero chance I’ll see one in person any time soon.

12 : Anonymous2022/01/03 17:56 ID: hr3l6kc

If you put the series s next to the ps5 it would look absolutely tiny

13 : Anonymous2022/01/03 18:41 ID: hr3skmz

I always thought my series x was huge until I saw a ps5 in person lol. It's enormous. Makes the OG PS3 look miniscule

14 : Anonymous2022/01/03 13:11 ID: hr2hjig

Jheeze man why’s the ps5 so wide lmao

15 : Anonymous2022/01/03 15:34 ID: hr2z6mf

Is there a pre-order? /s

I like how both microsoft and sony managed to simultaneously create the weirdest fucking console designs at the same time for their new consoles

the next move is yours, nintendo.

ID: hr310dv

You act like Nintendo haven't been making weirdly designed consoles since the 90s

ID: hr3ayvy

One of them was even named after its shape.
