A lot of consoles have had the ability to position them vertically in the last few years. Many of these machines are designed to look their best vertically (especially PS5). How many of you put your machines vertically?

I think the only system I've ever done that was with the PS3, and because of limited space, in all other cases, my consoles have always been horizontal.

Always Horizontal, that way they are sitting secured on my shelf. I wouldn't trust them vertical to be honest.

I second this. Better safe than sorry, I knock things over very easily, unintentionally, I wouldn't want my £300+ console to be one of those things. Also, particularly in the PS4, the cooling system is on the sides (when placed horizontally). By placing it vertically you would be directly blocking air from leaving the PS4 and over time, leading to overheating.

Always vertical. Positioning upright is better for the ventilation of the console and can, help prevent overheating of components.

On the other hand, there is a risk that the console could be knocked over accidentally which can be an expensive mistake.

I have seen a couple of my friends who liked to place their own horizontal. It looks good anyways but I prefer having mine in a vertical position. This is to help prevent the console from overheating.

Horizontal, always horizontal. I don't like vertical orientation, it makes the console look like a PC tower. I can't stand the look of PC towers. Also, horizontal is supposed to reduce the chances of your discs getting scratched, or at least that's what they said back in the day.

This is why my gaming set up is strictly off limits to everyone in my house. I wouldn't want to have anyone giving me an explanation I wouldn't be interested in hearing because all I would be seeing the money I'm going to spend to fix whatever have been damaged.

Last one that I had only can go one single way and that was vertical 🙂 Most does both but depends where you put it and the space that you have. Aren't the good and bad way about it.
