Even if you've seen a plethora of images and videos showing the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 from every possible angle, the following high-quality 3D renders, with 360-degree pan and zoom, give you a fuller impression of each console.

Using modeling programs like Blender and Maya, designers JC Volumic and Sylvain Bernard created very accurate 3D renders of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The interactive experience, hosted on Sketchfab, lets you check out just about every conceivable angle of the two highly anticipated gaming devices. Most modern smartphones should be able to view these renders, too.

Here's the PlayStation 4:

On a related note, don't miss some of the better size comparisons starring the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

When standing upright, the Xbox One even trumps the height (but not the thickness) of the original gigantic PlayStation 3.

Readers, what do you think about the designs of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4?
