Not just a piece of plastic for stability
on 7 January 2014
I wasn't able to get this on Amazon due to stock shortages but was able to get it from another retailer that had a few left.
This Official Sony PS4 vertical stand is worth the money if you want to stand your PS4 consoles vertically. It looks great and fits the size and shape of the side of the console perfectly. It adds that extra stability to the console that gives you that reassurance it will not topple over when plugging the usb cables in (and pulling them out) or using disc based games.
The main reason I got one however is the particular design of the stand. It uses two rubber cubes that insert into the indent on the side of the PS4. Inside the two rubber cubes are rotating spindles, which when rotated push out the sides of the rubber cubes onto the PS4 console to grip on the console. This gives enough rigidity between the stand and console. The other particular design aspect is that the stand has vents (some people think it doesn't but it does). There are gaps around the very base of the stand which are fed to from the vent on the top which the console sits on. This allows good airflow to continue even when the stand is attached. My console runs quieter and cooler standing vertically because of this stand.
If you are standing the console vertically, get this official stand, it allows more stable cooler running of the console, it's worth it.
