Microsoft’s Senior Director of Product Management & Planning, Albert Penello, has warned the Xbox One should be placed horizontally.
Specifically, Penello said,
“We don’t support vertical orientation; do it at your own risk. 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”.
“We found, interestingly enough, that 80 percent of people, believe it or not, have their Xbox  horizontally”.
What are your thoughts? Does it matter to you whether your console stands upright or horizontally?
