We're still a couple of months away from the launch of the Xbox One, but if you've already cleared out a welcoming cubbyhole in anticipation, then we hope you've pictured the next-gen console lying down. Speaking with GameSpot at the Tokyo Game Show, top Xbox bod Albert Panello said the One doesn't "support vertical orientation," or: you shouldn't stand it up. Panello explains the console's slot-loading drive simply wasn't designed for operating in that position, and if you're a rebellious type that laughs at the threat of busted hardware, you'll be ignoring official advice "at your own risk."

I had my original white 360 vertical but then with my 360S and the new top vent I have it down flat which is better for overall airflow. Since the XB1 shares the same type of top vent design it's best to have it flat.

Oh no what ever am i going to do!?!?!

 

Think this was pretty obvious, this is a pretty substantial consumer device and it was obviously designed to operate horizontally.

The title implies that it's fine to use the Xbox One upside down, which I'm sure is not what was meant.

Why would it be obvious if last gen you could operate on the side, and this gen the PS4 does?

And feet, and hands, and legs....

 

The Wii, PS3 and PS4 all do slot loading, it's not as if slot loading cannot be done horizontally.

This is a nonissue. Good to know I guess though.

Title is wrong, upside down is also flat.


Good to see that AB just had to enter every Xbox thread to troll for no reason still

Stop trying to find fault for the sake of it. If they want it to be flat, what's the problem? So what if other consoles do it? I'm sure you'll have a lovely time with your vertically stacked consoles. enjoy.

Getting defensive over other peoples opinions to do with how a console can be placed, hope the viewers only enjoy their glimpse of Neowin.
