Microsoft warning not stand your Xbox One vertically
Senior Director of Product Management and Planning Albert Panello recently made a statement here about the Xbox One won't be supporting vertical orientation because of the insertion of a slot loading drive. He stated at TGS
"We don't support vertical orientation; do it at your own risk." He clarified that "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".
Looks like the Xbox One is not made for ultra tight spaces that can be formatted to fit in certain spaces. Let us know what you think of this statement from Microsoft.
