PS5 is about to officially arrive in stores: less than a month is missing, in fact, before the Sony console starts the next-gen PlayStation branded.
In recent weeks, we have often talked about the weight of the platform – especially for the really generous dimensions of the new hardware: the data sheet revealed that PlayStation 5 will weigh 4.5 kg in the standard edition and 3.9 kg in the Digital one.
But not only: we are talking about 39 x 10.4 x 26 cm (length x height x depth) base excluded, while the Digital turns out to be 39 x 9.2 x 26 cm.
Now, in conjunction with the arrival of the PS5 in the hands of the insiders, the presenter Geoff Keighley has decided to dispel any doubts, weighing the console ( still stored in the box) on a normal bathroom scale .

In Keighley’s tweet, the entire console box appears to weigh 14.7 pounds, which is approximately 6.7 kg . The weight is slightly higher than previously declared due to the presence of the DualSense pad and other accessories in the box.
In any case, this is a “great piece of console”, especially when compared to the relatively small weight of the Xbox Series X (which will instead be 15.1 x 15.1 x 30.1 cm, for 4 , 45 kg).
In any case, you have already read that Will PS5 sell a truly staggering number of units within a few years of launch – and breaking records – according to one analyst? And that PlayStation 5 games sold in retail format will not require the update?
