Xbox One: Stand it Vertically "At Your Own Risk"

Microsoft has reiterated that Xbox One cannot be stood vertically on its side, and attempting to do so will damage the console due to its slot loading disc drive. It's not due to a cooling problem either, but down to the design of the console.

"We don't support vertical orientation; do it at your own risk." Xbox Senior Product Manager Albert Penello stated at TGS. "It wouldn't be a cooling problem, we just didn't design the drive for vertical. Because it's a slot loading drive, we just didn't design it for both".

For some reason, both PS3 and PS4 use slot loading drives, but can be stood vertically or horizontally, although according to Penello, more people prefer the latter orientation. "We found, interestingly enough, that 80 percent of people, believe it or not, have their Xbox [360] horizontally."

Consult the image below to see how you should place your Xbox One when you purchase it on November 22nd. Don't say we never do our bit to help.
