For those wondering just how the Xbox One compares to other consoles, especially to its predecessor the Xbox 360, a confirmed Xbox One dev on Reddit has posted measurements for the same. The dev has also revealed how long the Kinect 2.0′s cable length would be.
The Xbox One console measurements (LxWxH) are: 13.1″ x 10.8″ x 3.1″ (33.3cm x 27.4cm x 7.9cm. The Kinect 2.0′ measurements (LxWxH) are: 9.8″ x 2.6″ x 2.63″ (24.9cm x 6.6cm x 6.7cm). The overall cable length for Kinect will be 9.5 feet or 2.9 meters long. Will that be enough for your home set-up? For comparison’s sake, Sony’s PlayStation 4 measures 30.5 x 27.6 x 5.4 cm (LxWxH), indicating that is indeed smaller than the Xbox One in terms of length and height (if only slightly).
The dev also added that these measurements were “Measured with a tape where the precision is 1/8 so all values are an approximation.”
The Xbox One will be launching on November 22nd across 13 territories worldwide.
