Largest videogame console

The original Xbox and the launch version of the PS3 have long had a reputation as the two bulkiest pieces of videogame hardware ever, but both have now been dwarfed with the launch of the PlayStation 5 on 12 Nov 2020. With dimensions of approximately 390 x 260 x 104 mm (15.3 x 10.2 x 4 in), the PS5 now holds the record for largest console of all time based on dimensions. It has not, however, ousted the PS3 as the heaviest console of all time.
