Is It Safe To Use The PS4 Pro Vertically?

-

I want to be able to put the PS4 Pro on its side, but I am worried it might overheat or something. It is a little shaky when it is standing vertically, but I have it in a safe place where it won’t be able to fall. Is there any issue with ventilation with the PS4 pro if you use it while it is on the side? Should I buy a fan or something to make sure it doesn’t overheat?

It shouldnt cause any issues to stand the PS4 on it’s side. The system is not very stable when it is placed on it’s side so I would suggest you purchase a proper stand for it in order to keep it balanced.
