It was back in September that Microsoft decided to unleash paper placeholders for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on the public, and now IKEA is reportedly doing the same thing with in-store mock-ups.
As you can see in the image below, the retailer has created full-sized versions of the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, allowing potential customers to make sure their console of choice fits with their intended storage unit.

Humorously, the PlayStation 5 in the image is accompanied with the question, “which IKEA media storage unit will be able to fit my new, meme-ishly oversized, gaming console?,” with both also featuring specific measurements.
Ultimately, we think this is a pretty good idea! But not as good as those Xbox Papercraft Edition Kits…
