PS4: Vertical or Horizontal?

2 replies 229 views Edited Nov 18, 2013

Out of curiousity, so that my entertainment system is ready when I'm finally able to purchase one... which position is ideal for placement of the PS4 (with regards to disc read, system operating temperature, etc.)?  I've seen the 'Vertical Stand' accessory.  It seems that certain consoles do better in different positions, and I'm curious to hear what the devs might have to say.  Different sites seem to say different things.

 

The one thing I've read that everyone seems to agree on is that placing it horizontally allows for more air flow and cooling, as apparently the vents are on each side, and a vertical placement covers one of those vents.  Probably accounts for the louder operating noises in the vertical position, since the system would have to work harder to remain cool.

 

Thoughts/experiences from anyone who's gotten their hands on the system?

My karma ran over your dogma.

I keep my Playstation 3 and my Playstation 4 horizontal, do not want to risk knocking them over if they are vertical.
