I personally stand the console together with my tv as a result of it gained’t match within the items beneath it. Not to fear, although; assistance is at hand. Furniture big IKEA has provide you with a plan, as seen by Imgur poster JFP1. They’ve recreated the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles for his or her shows so prospects can attempt to match them into their most well-liked selection of storage unit.

In case prospects are unsure of their objective, the PlayStation 5 fashions even ask “which IKEA media storage unit will be able to fit my new, meme-ishly oversized, gaming console?” Each additionally comes with measurements of top, width, and size in centimeters, helpfully rounded to inch measurements in typical IKEA trend. The PS5 reproduction is roughly 80mm broad, “rounded to 4″, cuz curves” for instance.

Despite its measurement, the console doesn’t actually weigh as much as people might think; the disc model clocks in at 4.49kg thanks to the burden of the disc drive.
