Let me put it this way with no tech reasons

If your power unit has an error of some sort and its INSIDE the machine, you will need to send the whole console back.

If its outside, you dont need to send the whole console back

In the case of consoles, you really don't want your power right next to components giving extra heat in such a closed space. (See Ps4) The Xbox has it on the outside to allow for better air flow/less heat on the system. Will it still over heat? maybe.

Pretty much that and if it somehow dies you won't have to send the whole console back.

This, it wouldn't surprise me if the Ps4 overheated.

Well if you go to the actual PS4 forums people are having a ton of problems some over heating, some have bad Blu ray drives, some install update 1.50 and never work again, some have HDMI issues, the list goes on.
