FAQs

If you take the PS5 out of its box, it should fit in a significantly large backpack. It likely won’t fit on something like a standard Jansport backpack, though. If it does, the space will likely be pretty tight.

The standard measurements for a carry-on are 22 x 14 x 9in. This translates to about 559 x 229 x 356mm. This is more than any of the PlayStation 5 models, so the console should fit in a standard carry-on luggage bag. You will have to sacrifice much of the space, though, which likely means not taking as many clothes or personal items.

Whether you are taking it on a carry-on, or checking your luggage in, the TSA has no prohibitions on full-sized video game consoles, such as the Sony PlayStation 5. That said, some airlines may have their own rules regarding this subject.

The new versions of the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition became available in November 2023, in the USA. The release date may have been different in other markets.
