i didn't know ps5 is that big until you guys mentioned it. just now i just read the vgchartz.com article about it and its also included a video of the ps5 tear down. i watched a tiny bit of it a few days ago and wasn't really paying attention until now i watched the whole entire video of it and in the beginning of the video, the hardware designer said its bigger than the ps4.
when i read the article about it, they mentioned some kind of liquid cooling and how quiet the ps5 gets. that might be the reasons why the ps5 is this big. i was surprised how big the heatsink is when he pulled it out of the ps5 gut.
overall, i am very impressed with the internal design of the ps5 while the external design doesn't looks that cool to me. its still looks like a router to me.
like a couple months ago or so, some commentator said it looks like a female's private part. lol too.
