Tipsters and leakers have been discussing the weight of the PS5, which has been previously mentioned as tipping the scales at 4.78 kg (10.5 lbs). At the time, that weight had been specified on an Amazon France listing; however, now there are more widespread landing pages for Sony’s console stating the same figure, so it appears that could be the actual weight of the PS5. This makes it heavier than its main rival, the Xbox Series X, which comes in at 4.45 kg (9.8 lbs). In fact, the PS5 is almost 2 kg (4.4 lbs) weightier than the PS4 at 2.8kg (6.2 lbs).

As for the DualSense controller, that apparently weighs in at around 278 g (0.61 lbs) or even as much as 878 g (1.93 lbs; possible box weight included though), with the latter being considerably more than the DualShock 4 at just 220 g (0.48 lbs). However, the good news for some is that the recent alleged live image of the PS5 controller that looked absolutely gigantic may have been either a fake or shot at a bad angle. According to Roberto Serrano, the DualSense accessory has measurements of 17.1 x 5.8 x 10.7 cm (6.73 x 2.28 x 4.21 in), which makes it only slightly bigger than the DualShock 4 at 16.1 x 5.7 x 10.2 cm (6.33 x 2.24 x 4.01 in).

A seemingly overlooked feature of the PS5 console and its various accessories that is worth noticing is a minor but clever design detail. We already commented on how the console’s surface was decorated with the familiar triangle, square, circle, and cross pattern – well it seems the accessories also have the same little touch to them. Even the PS5 remote and the DualSense charging station appear to be covered in the PlayStation symbols.

As for those wanting to have their future PS5 possessions clad in black…or green, red dragon, bulletproof banana, or even zebra wood, help is on hand. Skins and wraps are being prepared for Sony’s next-gen console that will be expertly applied to the device for a reasonable fee. Customizers like Canada’s dbrand will also redecorate your DualSense controller should you wish and the company ships all around the world.
