We recently got our hands on some dummy units of the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. To give you a better idea of how these new form factors size up, we'll be comparing them to an array of current-gen consoles, household items, and tasty foods.

Forget what you've seen so far, this is the ultimate Xbox Series S|X size comparison guide!

First off, we'll compare the two new Xbox SKUs to each other. As you can see, the Xbox Series X takes up a bit more real estate with its large, brickish design while the Series S manages to pack next-gen features in a casing that's only slightly larger than the average hardback novel.

The Series S will definitely be easier to fit in most entertainment systems, but even the Series X is smaller than initial impressions might have suggested. With both models featuring a very pronounced ventilation area, it's clear Microsoft focused on form factors that deliver maximum airflow and cooling. These new consoles are certainly for fans of clean, minimalistic design.

After spending a little time comparing the Xbox Series X and S size differences, we took some the opportunity to see how these new Xbox consoles size up compared to the current big 3 of current-gen consoles - the Playstation 4 (launch edition), the Xbox One X, and the Nintendo Switch.

The new form factors for the Xbox Series X and S are certainly different than the DVD-inspired layout of the last several cycles. With power and ventilation at the forefront of design, Microsoft opted for a cleaner, more simplistic design this time around.

In addition to a host of very relevant and helpful comparisons, we took fan requests for a host of non-conventional comparisons as well. If you're curious to see how the Xbox Series X and S stack up to a Big Mac, Optimus Prime, a banana, British foods, and a host of other fun items, be sure to watch our comparisons video.

A huge shoutout to everyone who engaged in our thread and gave great suggestions for comparisons! We had a ton of fun whipping up this fun video and we look forward to seeing some of your hilarious comparison pics on launch day.

The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S launch on November 10, 2020, and are compatible with all the current best Xbox One games with the entire library going backward compatible, and all Xbox One accessories, including your best Xbox One headset.
