The fact that the guy in the video thinks this is acceptable is making me laugh the more I look at the gif.

I'm still pretty sure I'm getting a PS4 (at some point)...but honestly...I have no idea why it was designed like that.

From wobbles to flopples, this is not a good start Sony.

*play Knack for 5 minutes*

*realize you wasted money*

*slide Knack disk underneath PS4 to keep it from wobbling*

PRICELESS! Add Killzone shadowflop if Knack isn't enough :)

It really wobbles like that?

Is there even rubber square pegs at the bottom of each corner of the console ?

This could start to get real annoying once discs starts spinning and it wobbles by itself.

double sided tape and a bit of hard yakka, she'll be right.

Maybe the wobble will go away after an hour of playing BF4 when the heat picks up inside the machine and bends and warps it, right before that WLoD.

Enjoy!

It's annoying that this happened, but I'll be standing mine vertically anywho.

And if I was using it horizontally I wouldn't be over there pressing down on it. Don't think I've ever done that to a console before lol.

Someone on there was saying that the placement of the rubber feet is intentional so that it would be more stable on the edge of an entertainment center. Makes sense I guess.

Still just seems like they should have made sure that it would lay flat. Seems like bad design to me. They're lucky the box is so damn gorgeous.

I heard M$ paid them to make it wobble.

(Also, Polygon are somehow involved)

So basically if I don't walk over to my console and push down on the shiny end there isn't any wobble? Interesting. However if I am going to be that guy that constantly pushes down on that end I could simply stick a piece of double sided tape on it and I'd be good to go.

Design working as intended. Sony now waiting to announce their new first party franchise:

Lets hope it scores better than Knack.

if i was spending that amount of money on a consumer product, i'd expect it to sit perfectly flat on a level surface.

All jokes aside, that's just shitty workmanship. No doubt it will be fixed next shipment but come on Sony.

there are things at the bottom of the console, but not on the bottom of the glossy portion. the console is naturally balanced and won't wobble unless you were to apply pressure on that one particular spot.

- Quite an embarassing flaw if all PS4 are affected by this.

- An incredibly insignificant detail.

- The absolutely worst part of this is all the PS4 haters. They're already spamming those pictures to the point that I'd like to see it reportable as spam/disruptive posting. (especially because some of the pictures are friggin' huge). It's only gonna keep on going, with these gifs gonna be spammed in every bloody thread and hater after hater will keep quoting it.

Your input in threads is one of the things that keeps me on system wars.

On topic. This is sort of lame if it's a problem with a lot of launch PS4s.

Still pretty dam bad for the consumer to have to buy some rubber feet for a machine they spent over £400 on.

Don't push on the corner of it with your finger to make it wobble in the first place. Problem solved.

Why? it doesn't wobble on it's own, can't see what the huge deal is personally.

Lems be as bad as cows when it comes to nitpicking about minor s*** (that wasn't aimed at you Heli)
