Microsoft on Xbox One Vertical Orientation: 'Do it at your own risk'

I'd say it likely it's a cooling vent issue... I suppose it might be ok to have it upright if you hang it from the ceiling that way.

Every Console since the Gamecube I've owned has been standing vertically...

Is this Vertical Technology so confusing for Microsoft? WOW man get real guys...

I don't understand why anyone puts their console vertically to begin with. You run the risk of it falling over. Horizontally, that problem never comes up, It's much safer.

I can't tell if we're being serious here. Is this really what the Sony fanboys/trolls/weeaboos are reaching for now?

consoles don't just ''fall'' over, they get knocked over. Don't knock it over and it gets to run cooler

There's no way I can pay you back, but my plan is to show you that i understand.
You are appreciated.

As much as I understand that people want their consoles vertical (this is how I have my 360 at the moment) Microsoft is saying it is a bad idea... so if you are getting an Xbox One don't do it, why is that hard?

Why is it that the XB360, PS4, PS3, PS2 can all go vertical with appropriate stands, yet the XB1 is "Do at your own risk?"

WTF?

MS failing it's customers AGAIN!


More like poor hardware planning and being rushed to compete with Sony.


My theory was right- The XBone may double as a toaster oven later on.

The bandwagon hatred of Microsoft and XBox One is flat out pathetic at this point.
