Vertical or Horizontal?

Poll: Vertical or Horizontal? (115 votes)

Vertical 22%
Horizontal 71%
Vertical with the stand 7%

I might have made this post already,as I'm sure many others have as well, but how do you guys keep your PS4 and your reasoning for it? I keep mine vertical without the stand. I keep it at an angle next to my TV because it looks cool. I plan on getting a stnd in the future tho.

I keep it horizontal right next to my computer monitor so I can put my laptop on it.

Mine is horizontal.

It creates a big problem that I did not have with the PS3 though, which is that the cat sits on it while it's running.

Seriously, get your shit together Sony and make me an anti-cat console.

I wanted to hear horizontal, because that is my only choice. My cat goes after the receiver.

Ahh the beginning of a new console generation always have these sort of post, feel nostalgic about the time when I bought my ps3 and these were the type of questions asked on forums. Anyways, I have my ps4 horizontally and my ps3 superslim verically.

Horizontal, I've gone through several traumatic experiences with vertical systems.

After past consoles have had various issues with standing vertically (scratching discs, disc read issues, heat, etc), I've stopped even entertaining the idea. Also...I have cats, and I don't trust them.

Doggy style.

Horizontal because of my cabinet, and also because vertical just doesn't look right to me. I'm weird, I know.

Once I get an Xbox One then I'm going to have to make the PS4 stand.

I had mine horizontal but then put it in a tv stand and it wont fit vertically anymore. Also it seems to have gotten a lot quieter than when it was vertical?

I am gonna have to say, curved.

Living life on the wild side... Vertical with no protection. No room for it to lie down in this place.

Vertical next to my tv all sexy like. Dat pulsing light.

Vertical because of the lack of space on my desk...

What the hell am I going to do when I get an Xbox One? Stupid Microsoft and their anti-vertical agenda.

Just got mine tonight. Currently standing vertical with no real problems. Unless someone bumps into my desk with excessive force it should be fine. The PS3 has been fine all of these years vertical.

I balance it on a corner. I like to live dangerously.

Horizontal, fits right in the gap below my TV stand.

Horizontal, no where to put it Vertical. Fit perfect in my stand that way.

#19 Posted by phantomzxro (1607 posts) -

Just the safe bet for me as i have the space for it.

Horizontal because it goes under the TV stand.

#21 Posted by Mister_V (1689 posts) -

Vertical behind my TV. I don't have enough room to have it horizontal (I had to build a shelf for the XBONE)

Vertical, with the stand.

You stand-less vertical PS4ers are cruisin' for a bruisin'.

I get a nice bladerunner vide from it when it's horizontal. living in the future.

#24 Posted by Deadmanforking (584 posts) -

Horizontal all day every day!

@psylah: Why? The thing is like a good 7-8 lbs. The bottom of it is flat and wide enough for it to stand up. The stands are just a scam maaaaan.

#26 Edited by psylah (2273 posts) -

@demoskinos: I'm joking. The stand is for looks at best, and is best at looks. How it works is interesting though, two rubber cubes go into the central groove of the system, and rotating the two knobs on the bottom squeezes and makes them expand to the sides, giving it friction grip.

I always go horizontal.

Don't have one. The slanted shape would make it easy to insert discs and USB while the system lies flat. I wouldn't want to risk it falling over, and it's small enough that it shouldn't get in the way in either position. It also makes more sense to me symmetrically.

Nothing is cat proof.
