Wouldn't setting it vertically put a lot of strain on the top fan


Most Desktop PC's have their CPU fan/heatsink literally hanging(held by 4 screws & bolts) from the Mobo.

Does this mean the PS4 can't stand on its side as well since you know... it's like a parallelogram or something?

You can tell just by looking at it that it wasn't designed to be stood vertically.


... it's a 3d rectangle...


That's obviously going to be wobbly if standing on its side due to how long it is in respect to how tall it is in its designed orientation.

That's the point.


the point is bad design?

There's no way I can pay you back, but my plan is to show you that i understand.
You are appreciated.

That is a matter of opinion.

They designed the console to fit it in stylisticly with with AV components, most of which are rectangular and oriented horizontally.

With so many people saying XBONE and Xboners, the first thing that came to mind it that you can never get your XBONE up.

On topic, it doesn't really concern me. I'm sure I can find a little spot for it to lay flat.

if it could stand maybe it will raise the price
well i wouldn't worry if my xbone couldn't stand, on the other hand if my other *one couldn't stand then i will start to worry and depressed

What's strange is that the excuse given is the slot-loading drive - however, most PS3 models, all Wii models, the Wii U and the PS4 all have slot-loading drives, and all can stand vertically. I suspect it could be heat-related and that Microsoft just don't want to say that. I also expect that it would indeed work vertically in the vast majority of situations, and Microsoft are being extremely cautious.

He's right though. There's horizontal-orientation design cues all over the hardware and the marketing. There's the fact that Microsoft have never shown it standing vertically, the vents, the aspect ratio (Microsoft have said that it's specifically designed to include 16:9 aspect ratios, and in living rooms that typically means a horizontally-oriented device. The Xbox One and Kinect are designed to match, and Kinect is very clearly a horizontal device. Even the logo is wrong when the console is vertical.

The PS4 can stand vertically, although whenever Sony have shown it this way, it's had a vertical stand, which is a separate purchase. It'll probably be like the PS2 and stay vertical perfectly well without the stand though.

really
i think its better this way instead of redesign or rise the price just for to be able to stand
standless console is good when it could maximize the hardware inside it
