How to eject a PS4 disc using a button

The main way that most people will use to eject a disc on PS4 will be to use the button on their PS4. The thing is, it's not always in the same place, and it depends entirely on what kind of PS4 you have.

On an original PS4, the button is essentially invisible, but it's the bottom vertical line on the front of your console. Push this and you'll eject the disc.

The slim version of the PS4 is on the lower of the two horizontal slits across the front of your PS4 on the right-hand side.

The PS4 Pro has the button on the left-hand side at the front, and it's a tiny little button next to the power one. At least it's marked properly.
