The PS5 is an odd looking console. Lots of turns and dives. It’s easy to set it up incorrectly by mistake, which is what PlayStation Studios director Hermen Hulst seems to have done in a now-deleted tweet. Oops!
Hermen Hulst uploaded a cute little video this morning of his cat attacking his TV while he is playing Bugsnax. Under the cat, however, lurked his PS5, which was upside down.
For those wondering, the correct way to run the console horizontally is to use the included stand to flatten the console. The disc tray is located on the lower left of the device.
So it seems that Hulst is turning his PS5 upside down like a rebel who doesn’t care about rules or instructions. Or maybe, like so many others, he was just confused when he set up the oddly shaped console. According to Cotacus own Ari Notis, who turns the PS5 upside down feels more natural and logical. I think he’s just making excuses for setting up his fancy next-generation machine wrong.
Imagining some Sony PR emails after this stupid mistake sent to politely inform people how to properly set up a PS5.
