I read somewhere it was not designed to be standing vertical. I prefer this way for more air flow. Its the PC gamer in me.

If you're planning to buy an Xbox One, you should make sure to lay it down flat, warns Microsoft. Anyone using their Xbox One in a vertical orientation risks damage to both the console and its games.

The problem, according to Microsoft, stems from the Xbox One disc slot. While the Xbox 360's disc tray was capable of either horizontal or vertical use, the new slot was designed with horizontal configurations in mind.

"We don't support vertical orientation; do it at your own risk," said Albert Panello, senior director of product management for Microsoft's Xbox division. "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."

of course you would have to consider than the Wii, PS3, PS3 slim, WiiU and PS4 all have slot loading drives and have vertical positioning.
