The Network continues to discuss the possibility of the weight of the PlayStation 5 as well as the size of the new controller DualSense. A month earlier, the information about the weight of the console 4.78 kg called the French online retailer Amazon. Now the same figures confirmed by the German representation of the largest shopping Internet sites.
If the data is correct, then the PlayStation 5 is slightly heavier than its rival the Xbox Series X, whose weight is 4,45 kg. With this new console from Sony almost 2 kg heavier than its predecessor, the PlayStation 4, which weighs 2.8 kg. Although the PlayStation 5 already called the biggest console in history, by the weight it did not pass the original PlayStation 3, with its 5 kg.
As for the controller, DualSense, its weight should be about 278 grams. While network sources say about 878 grams, but likely the question in this case is about the gross weight of the device, along with the box. For comparison, the weight of the DualShock 4 controller for the PS4 is only 220 grams. It seems that the first “live” photo DualSense where he looks huge, does not reflect the real size of the gamepad – the thing in perspective.

According to Italian analyst Roberto Serrano (Roberto Serrano) dimensions of the controller are DualSense 17,1 × 5,8 × 10.7 cm, making it only slightly more DualShock 4, whose size is equal to 16.1 × 5,7 × 10,2 cm
You should also add one interesting detail about the design of the console. Earlier it became known that on close examination, the surface of the PlayStation 5 has been covered with textures of triangles, squares, crosses and circles.
It seems that all accessories including remote control and webcam to the new console, are covered with the same symbols of the PlayStation brand.
