The Ultimate PlayStation Classic Size Comparison with Basically Everything We Could Find

The PlayStation Classic is the latest of a series of mini-consoles that have been hitting the shelves over the last couple of years. Of course, one of the factors that turns them into charming collectibles is their size. Geeks love miniaturization, and gamers are no exception.

At roughly 149 mm × 33 mm × 105 mm (5.9 inches × 1.3 inches × 4.1 inches), Sony’s latest hardware is definitely small, but unless you walk around with a ruler or measuring tape in your pocket, it might be difficult to envision.

Enter our size comparison, in which we place the PlayStation Classic side-by-side with… everything we could find, to show you just how small it feels.

Above you can see the most obvious picture, placing the PlayStation Classic on top of her big sister. Yes, she’s a little stained after over 20 years. I did try to clean her, I swear.

Here you can see a comparison with another “big sister.” The PlayStation Classic is completely dwarfed by the original PS4.

PlayStation Classic

Even the PS Vita. Despite being Sony Interactive Entertainment’s latest portable, it is still considerably wider than the new mini console.

This seems to be almost on purpose: the width of the PlayStation Classic is basically identical to the width of the case of PS1 games.

Back to modern times, the mini console is visibly smaller than the case of a PS4 game.

Don’t be fooled by the size of the PlayStation Classic’s box: the actual console is much smaller. Most of the packaging real estate is taken by the two controllers. Speaking of which…

PlayStation Classic

Yes, the console is slightly smaller than its own controller. Is your mind blown yet?

PlayStation Classic

The PlayStation Classic’s width is pretty much comparable to the length of a modern smartphone.

PlayStation Classic

Even a wristwatch isn’t all that smaller than Sony’s classic console.

PlayStation Classic

It won’t fit in your glasses case, but its width is basically identical.

PlayStation Classic

It can probably fit in your pocket together with your keys. Just be careful not to scratch it.

PlayStation Classic

The original PlayStation has always been a charming console.

PlayStation Classic

It’s always a good idea to wear proper protection.

If you’re thirsty, the PlayStation Classic can double as the perfect coaster for the discerning gamer.

…Or for your yogurt. Do people even use coasters for Yogurt?

PlayStation Classic

It can easily fit in your fruit basket. I have no idea why you’d put it in there, but stranger things have happened.

PlayStation Classic

Speaking of eating, no matter what kind of tools you use for dinner, they’re still longer than the PlayStation Classic.

PlayStation Classic

I just burned a light bulb so… why not?

PlayStation Classic

If you need to perform repairs that are a bit more complex than changing a bulb, the PlayStation Classic will fit comfortably in your toolbox.

A digital camera shows that if Sony really wanted, they could make the PlayStation Classic even smaller.

PlayStation Classic

The original PlayStation is the birthplace of the Tenchu series. I’m sure I’m not the only one wishing to play a new one.

PlayStation Classic

Mecha action figures definitely dwarf this hardware.

PlayStation Classic

This Prinny has found a new throne. The Disgaea series debuted on the PlayStation 2, but this still feels appropriate, somehow.

PlayStation Classic

When the original PlayStation was at the climax of its glory I was also a Warhammer 40,000 nut. I regret nothing.

PlayStation Classic

Two classic Sony products: PlayStation and the Walkman. The console has been one of the most relevant driving forces behind the passage from audio cassettes to compact disks.

PlayStation Classic

The Lamborghini Countach was seen as a cult-car when the original PlayStation launched.

PlayStation Classic

Yes. The PlayStation Classic is really small.

PlayStation Classic

I couldn’t fit my cat into the lightbox so this one isn’t as neat as the rest. Yes, I saved the cutest picture for last.
