The PS5 is a weird console, and its curved edges can make it difficult to know exactly which way the console should sit when laid flat. In the vast majority of Sony’s marketing, when the console appears on the page, it is disk-driven at the bottom. But rather funny, it seems that even Sony may be confused as to which way to go when it released a video on its main Twitter account showing the console lying with the disk drive On the top (via Kotaku).
The video has already been deleted, but luckily a Reddit user shared a screenshot of how the PS5 appeared in the ad, located in a person̵
The embarrassing blunder hit shortly before Sony is ready to release a State of Play showcase about upcoming PS5 games starting at. 17:00 ET Thursday. But as Kotaku reminded me that this is not even the first time Sony has ruined the orientation of the console: PlayStation Studios boss Hermen Hulst tweeted a video with one on his head PS5 in December, which he then deleted and recharged, but with PS5 cropped out .
Personally, I keep my PS5 set up vertically. That way, I avoid any confusion about how it should or should not be set. But I have to say that I still have not come across how it towers over my other consoles.
Correction: We misspelled Hermen Hulst’s first name, which has two Aces, not one. We apologize for the inconvenience.
