We don't need to tell you how big the PlayStation 5 is. It's a monster, and everyone knows it. For some, it's been a bit of a struggle to accommodate the newfangled machine in their existing setup. The PS5 just won't fit into some TV stands and entertainment centres. Perhaps you need to get new furniture to house your console, but which can fit a PS5? Fortunately, IKEA seems to understand the struggle.

A Reddit user recently visited their local IKEA store, and found a scale model of a PS5, intended to help customers buy a cabinet large enough to store the white and black box. There's an Xbox Series X too. These models display all the dimensions of each console, which will allow you to make an informed decision. That way, you won't have any nasty surprises once you get home and spend all that time building your flat pack media centre. On the side of the PS5, it says, "Which IKEA media storage unit will be able to fit my new, meme-ishly oversized, game console?" Sounds like staff were being asked this a lot.

It's a pretty clever move from the retailer that will be genuinely helpful. Have you struggled to fit your PS5 into your home? Follow the instructions in the comments section below.
