Panello stated that Microsoft discovered that "we found, interestingly enough, that 80 percent of people, believe it or not, have their Xbox [360] horizontally".


So we said, "Screw you 20%."

I mean seriously MS?? Way to assure your customers. "Do it at your own risk" who in their right mind is going to say this kind of things while trying to sell your console? So now if overheating issues happens to your console you're just gonna say, "Use it at your own risk"?

Amusing...

"Microsoft "just didn't design the drive for vertical. Because it's a slot loading drive, we just didn't design it for both"."


that's the best they could come with? I could name a handful of media devices, PC with a slim BR drive that allow both and horizontal setup.
Don't tell me big heads at MS couldn't bring something when they built the machine?

As it looks anyway, it's made to be set horizontally. But at least, don't feed people with slot drive bs excuse.

It probably overheats more while placed vertically. And yeah, he might have as well said: "buy our console at your own risk."
