We Finally Know How Big the Xbox Series X Is

Digital Foundry gives us a look at the console's relative size.

When first announced, there were jokes about the Xbox Series X's ability to fit into entertainment centers. Today, we now have a pretty good idea of how big the next-generation Xbox will be, so you can start allocating the real estate for it.

In a new video from Digital Foundry, we finally get a look at the form factor of Microsoft's console. There are some shots of it by itself, as well as the box relative to the size of the Xbox One X, the most recent Xbox.

As Digital Foundry jokes, the Series X is about the size of two Nintendo Gamecubes, with Game Boy Players, stacked on top of each other. It's fairly beefy, though not quite the size of a PC tower or anything like that. While we've seen some supposed leaks of the console before now, this is our best view of the actual size of the new Xbox and its form factor. The actual dimensions of the new console are 15.1cm x 15.1cm x 30.1cm, so you can start measuring out some space in your living room.

But the Xbox Series X is looking much more powerful than simply two Gamecubes. Digital Foundry's breakdown goes into just how much power the processor can handle, both in outputting next-gen games and retro-boosting older games like Gears 5. It's looking like the Series X is leading a serious charge for power with the next generation, setting a fairly high bar for Sony's PlayStation 5.
