Here’s the thicc Xbox Series X and S pictured next to a PS4 Pro for comparison

It seems Microsoft have shipped out a load of Xbox Series X and S consoles to various people so they can go hands on, but don not get excited, they’ve sent empty cases. Eyebrows are being raised the consoles are rather more chonky than we thought. Here is the Xbox Series S pictured beside a PlayStation 4 Pro.


As you can see it’s about the same thickness, but is not as deep as the Sony console, that looks fine doesn’t it? Now let’s take a look at the Xbox Series X beside a PS4 Pro.

To quote a member of the TSA staff, “that is not a console that’s a weapon of mass destruction.” What a thicc boy the Xbox Series X is! Here’s another shot with the Series XX on top of the current Xbox One X.

Fans Xbox boxes will be pleased to know the Xbox Series X box has also been revealed!

  1. There was a warning with the xbox one saying something about making sure it was stable as it could cause injury if it fell. I think they’ll need to upgrade the warning for the series X.

    • Xbox One: “Could cause injury”
      Xbox Series X: “Will cause injury”

  2. Does the X Box Series X Box 🤔 too many x’s and boxes, carry a ‘minimum 2 person lift’ symbol?

  3. So once they’re out in the wild away from professional photographers and nice lighting, they look even worse?

    I guess if they paid someone to do a decent job designing them, they wouldn’t have got that Series S down to such a cheap price.

  4. This is an early / late April Fool surely?!?! It can’t be that big / hideous. Now day or so ago I was thinking the series x and all access offer was a no brainier and cracking value for money. Looking at that I’m having serious second thoughts! There won’t be space under / on any reasonable sized TV cabinet for that! I’m calling fake news on this one.

  5. Just showed my son and his words ‘oh that’s horrible, please don’t get that, absolutely mank’. He would rather I get PS5 thought he’s biased (but still got a point to be fair).
