we've had a pc under the tv (antec server rack case with handles removed is perfect btw, no mATX bs m8) for a while. with a ps4 there's no arm movement so you can sprawl yourself wherever for hours. if you sit like the guy in that pic with a keyboard and mouse you will eventually f**k your lower back up from all the shoulder-based movement. you need to be upright, jam some couch parasites (cushions) behind you and you'll be fine.

I love how the image has a well dressed gentleman in business attire in a clean, crisp setting. I suspect the more likely scenario is a unkempt man in shorts and a stained t-shirt in an old leather couch filled with empty chip packets and cans of mountain dew.

Having said that, when I injured my ankle recently I slapped my laptop on my.. lap, put my leg up and used the side of my couch to hold my mouse. Worked pretty well but its no permanent setup.

this is the only way I might be convinced to get Midair instant access... I can play Civ with the steam controller but need a kb+m for trives
