Xbox One Will Only Be Able To Lay Horizontally Due To Slot Loading Drive
Today, Microsoft told GameSpot that due to the inclusion of a slot loading drive, the Xbox One won't support vertical orientation or it could damage the system. "We don't support vertical orientation; do it at your own risk." Check it out after the jump...
Microsoft's director of product planning for Xbox, Albert Penello, revealed to GameSpot at the Tokyo Game Show, We don't support vertical orientation; do it at your own risk. Penello says the risk comes not from ventilation, but the disc drive. 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. However, Penallo states that Microsoft's figures show that 80% of Xbox 360 owners lay their system horizontally anyways. Xbox One is scheduled for launch in North America and Europe on November 22, and in Japan in 2014.
