Saw this and figured it had to be a bad unit. They're not all like this, surely? Annoying.

Or they have a horribly elevated table. Don't think something like this would get by R&D. It's one unit out of millions.

It's weird.

I can see how people would be concerned about it, especially after paying so much money.

It's entirely superficial though.

Yeah this really bothered me too. Jeff said he noticed it on an earlier unit too, so I don't think they just got a bad model.

They should check to see if all the rubber feet are there. There were PS2's back in the day that were missing them.

As opposed to wobbling naturally?

Answered your own question. Let's get some more impressions first before flying off the handle on what might have been a wonky unit.

Is it missing a foot (or does it even have little feet to sit on)?

I hope that they got a bad unit and that they don't *all* do that....

If you watch the video it's because there are only plastic feet on one side and the centre of the console. For some reason they didn't put any feet on one side.

I get really OCD about stuff like this, but I don't think it'll bother me all that much. I'm much more concerned about the thumbstick rubber issue. I'll use the controller every time I turn the system on, but moving the system around? Yeah, not so much.
