Microsoft has dropped a ton of information about its upcoming next-generation console, the Xbox Series X. We’ve learned a lot about its impressive specifications, the proprietary card necessary for additional storage space, and more. But we’ve also gotten a glimpse at just how huge the Series X is compared to Microsoft’s current system on the market, the Xbox One X. And the difference is truly staggering.
The Xbox Series X comes in at 5.9 inches wide, 5.9 inches deep, and 11.8 inches tall. The Xbox One X stands at 2.4 inches wide, 9.4 inches deep, and 11.8 inches tall. While both systems are at the same height, the Series X is thicker than the One X. It’s expressly clear by the images and information available that Microsoft’s next-gen console isn’t something to hide under a TV or in the entertainment center.
Check out the tweets below for the Xbox Series X’s dimensions, a size comparison between the Series X and a refrigerator, and a side-by-side look at the One X and Series X. Below the tweets is a video by tech YouTuber Austin Evans who, in his hands-on video, sets the Series X on top of the One X around the 1:50 mark.
Microsoft’s Xbox Series X is slated to hit store shelves this holiday season, with 343 Industries’ Halo Infinite releasing as a day-one launch title. A specific release date and price for the next-gen system has yet to be provided, but we’ve compiled a list of everything else we know about the console thus far.
