The announcement of the new Xbox 360 Slim intrigued gamers into purchasing one but one question haunts them; are there any consequences of placing the new Xbox 360 Slim horizontally or vertically?
I do vertical. But thats me.
Horizontal for me
Any position is good enough for me, giggidy OH!
Who else but Quagmire?!
lol @Quagmire Horizontal for me. Vertical is just too dangerous, but much more fancy.
lol @ quagmire. classic.
Ok, to anyone that already has a 360 slim, do you think it's worth it if I can get the 250GB one for 165 bucks? Does it really scratch your disks or is it just blown out of proportions? if I do end up getting it, I'll definitely have it horizontal since I don't like the way they look standing up.
Its not blown out of proportion. If you intend to stand it vertical and your entertainment center isn't totally stable, or you have kids, don't get one would be my recommendation. Or figure out a way to set it horizontal.
it'l only scratch disks if the DVD drive is spinning whilst you move it from hori to vert and vice versa
I don't know. Maybe you know, you might want to walk down the stairs with it to the other room or take it from place to place, in which case it might scratch discs. /s.
i like mine horizontal. Had it vertical for awhile but horizontal looks inconspicuous under my tv set. Have only had one problem in the position for the past 2 years with the original 360, so I don't think horizontal would affect new S much.
doggie for me.
It doesn't matter any which way it looks sexy also i don't have a ps3 slim can u stand that in a Vertical Position? because if not i won't purchase a ps3 slim. lol pay extra for ps3 slim stand no thanks i won't be getting a ps3 slim then.
for the ps3 slim to stand vertically, you need to purchase a stand for 20 bucks. Otherwise, you have to risk the system from falling
$20 for a stand, no thank you. I keep my PS3 flat on the entertainment stand, which works perfectly fine for me. I keep my Xbox vertical though, don't know why, I guess it just looks cooler that way lol.
I have my slim ps3 vertical without a stand, I would never stand a 360 vertical because the main vent that the air comes out of is at the bottom.
ps3 phat you can
Horizontal is almost always better. The PS3 is one of the few systems with the best heatflow when vertical, but I don't personally think its so much better that it trumps the optical disc issues. The Wii... it doesn't matter, so vertical is good. 360.. definately horizontal.
especially as the new 360 has a whopping great vent directly above the CPU, so the heat would probably get vented out quicker if its horizontal.
Horizontal takes away any chance of the disc problems of the vertical tray can cause.
Horizontal is better for the console.
Ver all the way Ive been using mine like crazy it breaths tons better standing up PS The slim is dam good looking and was worth every penny, its as if not more quiet than my PS3 slim
Hope this is true and not embellishment...I hate adpoting new generation tech early but the gamestop deal is too good to pass up
The weight on the axel of the disc rotater is more balanced. All consoles were aesthetically designed to look good vertically. I prefer vertical.
