Here’s what’s in the box (as pictured above):
It is 16-inch (with stand) PS5 towers over the nearly 12-inch-inch tall than the Xbox Series X. If you won’t see a quick volume calculations, the PS5 is about 445 cubic inches in total volume, versus roughly 432 cubic inches for the Xbox Series X.
The console will work both vertically and horizontally, but it’s clearly meant to stand straight up. The Xbox Series X has a small built-in foot on the bottom panel. Flip the Xbox on its side, and the foot just sits there. Also, the cool small illuminated Xbox logo will be sideways. That said, this is much, much simpler to fit in vertically than the huge PS5.
