Xbox One Should Always Be Sitting Horizontally

JPS Writes: "We told you back in August that Microsoft warned against standing your Xbox One vertically, not because of cooling issues but due to the different type of disc drive used in the system. Now that I’ve gotten my hands on the console, I thought I would repeat that message once again."

You don't want it to be like the Xbox 360 disk-eating slim.

This is extremely old news

Some journalist and gamers are finding it hard to believe that x1 should always be setting vertically.. Makes me wanna say this famous hashtag from former MS employee #dealwithit

Who's dumb enough to stand the xbone, which is clearly not designed to stand upright, upright?

Godmars2901556d ago

Anyone who doesn't know about this when every other console they own is upright.

The original PS2 is probably the only console that has ever been pictured with a stand implying that it's OK to put it upright. It was a bit of a gimmick to make it stand tall and proud. No other consoles has been specifically designed or officially pictured to be stood up.

"No other consoles has been specifically designed or officially pictured to be stood up"

Go Google Xbox 360. Now.

Godmars2901556d ago

Does anyone really remember what the original Xbox 360 looks like? without having to Google that is.

I think "ignorant to the fact" is a thousand times more appropriate here than "dumb enough" since last gen was all consoles that could be set vertically.

You're right about consoles being able to be stood vertically I have now found. I just would never do it.
Maybe you could not shout orders at people though - unless you want them all to be 'silent' in their thoughts.

All consoles should. I had a bad experience with someone knocking over my vertical console when I was playing a game.

Never again.

KingDadXVI1556d ago

I had the same experience so mine are always horizontal now. It may look cool or even fit your situation better but I really did not like the chance of the thing falling over again.

DeadIIIRed1556d ago

Yep, my gf loves cats and cats hate vertical consoles. RIP my fat PS3

Audiggity1556d ago

Ugh. Cats. A video to explain cats:

So, yeah, politely invite the cat to leave your home upon technological damage. Remind the cat that it serves no purpose in this world unless it can produce YouTube videos, or at least hilarious .gifs.

This console cant even stand up to the PS4. haha

tarbis1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

Well, not even to the PS3, Wii or Xbox 360.
