PS5 size: what are the dimensions of the console?

And in the direction of the height, the console occupies almost twice as much space (104 mm against 55 mm for the PS4 Slim). This gives you an idea of ​​the vastness of the PS5 which, let’s be clear, is the greatest console ever.

PS5: you can put it vertically or horizontally


The main promotional images of the PS5 feature it vertically. Many wonder if it is possible to arrange it horizontally. At first glance, this does not seem so obvious given the very raised shape of the console. It has indeed an irregular surface compared to the slim PS4 which is quite flat.

But rest assured, the PS5 arises naturally in both directions. So you can set it to horizontal as at vertical thanks to a base supplied with the console. This support is necessary, regardless of the direction in which you lay it out. Your choice will depend on your personal preference and especially on the space you have in your furniture.


In either direction, the PS5 takes up more space than the three versions of the PS4 (classic, Slim and Pro), both in width and in height. We will therefore have to make room.
