A new Sony advertisement for the PlayStation 5 hilariously showed the console placed upside-down. The visual oddity was seen only for a moment within the ad, but it’s obvious the unique design of the PS5 caused some confusion for the advertisers. Unfortunately, the tweet that included the mistake was removed after several people on pointed out the blunder.
Sony shared the ad on its Twitter account, and the moment in question comes at the end of a heartwarming ad between a father and son. A little boy asks his dad to tell him a story, and the father does so by retelling the glorious tale of the 2018 God of War. Then the father sits down to play the game, and… bam! Upside-down PS5.
It’s quite noticeable since the disc slot is visible on the top half of the console on the right side. According to Sony’s own manual, when you orient a PS5 correctly, the disc slot should be on the bottom left. The image at the top is how it how you set it up properly.
Either way, Sony designed a console that looks like futuristic skyscraper and if you were not a gamer, it would be hard to discern how to set it up.
