Horizontal for me. Vertical is just too dangerous, but much more fancy.

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.

spandexxking2943d ago

it'l only scratch disks if the DVD drive is spinning whilst you move it from hori to vert and vice versa

SOAD2943d ago

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.

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.

MightyMark4272943d ago

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

T9X692943d ago

$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.

NegativeCreepWA2943d ago (Edited 2943d ago )

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.

morkendo2943d ago (Edited 2943d ago )

ps3 phat you can

Trroy2943d ago (Edited 2943d ago )

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.

spandexxking2943d ago

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.

MattyF2943d ago

Horizontal takes away any chance of the disc problems of the vertical tray can cause.

Eiffel2943d ago

Horizontal is better for the console.
