A chap called Michael Pick created the worlds largest Xbox console! It's a great build and, even better, a YMCA centre in Atlanta then got to benefit from it.

That's definitely big, but I think it's still touch and go! :lol:

The PS5 certainly is a large console; it is big, but perhaps not *that* much bigger than previous PlayStations. It's a bit chunky when fitting it into some TV cabinets, though.

I wasn't sure at first but I have grown to dig the wavy black-and-white styling... it's so exuberant!

It's certainly going to be interesting to see how the PS5 evolves over the next 10 years with slim versions.
Was it the PS1 or 2 that had a slim and then super slim?

I don't ever buy the slim versions but I'm always interested in them anyway and I watch the tear down videos if they're available.

I don’t rate it. There’s no craftsmanship in it. Anything remotely intricate, he just 3D printed. He didn’t even wire it up to the real console. Using servos to press the buttons is so clunky. And you have to pull the console out the back to change discs. Then they painted the thing so it doesn’t even look like an Xbox. Rubbish.

If I wire up my doorbell to my Series X’s power button and paint the front door black, can I say my house is now the world’s largest Xbox?

But it’s so unambitious.

But what if it turns me into an influencer? I’d hate that.

Maybe you could influence people to become huge Luton Town FC fans?
You'd love that.
