While your PlayStation 4 console has a sturdy base to sit on horizontally, there is a way to save some space on the entertainment center. By using a dock, you can easily ensure that, when standing vertically, your console is stable and ready to give you access to your games, music, and movies.

Tosa Blue Light Stand

There aren't many ways that you can make your PlayStation 4 console look slicker when you've got it in a vertical dock, but the Tosa Blue Light Stand can definitely help. This stand is pretty low-key, until you plug in the USB that powers it.

It also includes several USB ports, which means you can easily charge your extra controllers without having to argue about where everything plugs in. Pick it up for $14.

Younik Vertical Stand

If you're looking to get your Playstation up on its vertical axis but you don't want to break the bank then you might want to consider the Younik Vertical Stand. It's just about as basic as a vertical stand can be but it's also about as cheap as it can be.

It is pretty much just a brick of plastic with a slot in which to set your PlayStation. However, it will broaden the footprint of your PS4 in order to make it more stable in a vertical configuration. It also includes cooling vents and little nonslip rubbers feet. It may not seem like a lot of extras but at a $10 price point, it's hard to complain.
