The console can lay on its side, or can be placed vertically with a stand, which you can purchase separately for $14.99.

Glowing Light

The easily missed power button is right on the front, between the glossy and matte sections, where the LED separates the console.

PlayStation Camera

The PlayStation 4 has its own camera, sold separately from the console for $59.99. It features two lenses to see 3D images, along with a microphone array to detect sound.
