    Xbox One vertical orientation: "Do it at your own risk"

    wha? thats a $#@!ty excuse when like the article pointed out, others have done it and nothing happened to the console

    Microsoft on Xbox One Vertical Orientation:

    Panello revealed to GameSpot at the Tokyo Game Show, "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".

    The Xbox One isn't the only system to feature a slot loading drive; both the PlayStation 3--original and slim models--and PlayStation 4 have a similar design, and users are free to orient those consoles horizontally or vertically without risking damage to the console.

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

    The Xbox One is scheduled for launch in North America, most European markets, Australia, and New Zealand on November 22 this year, with follow-up releases in Japan and the remaining European markets in 2014.

    There is probably a 3rd GPU now.

    Why am I not surprised that Microsoft didn't address this same issue that the 360 had. Now there are going to be more scratched discs. Really though, it should be able to play while it's vertical. Because of this I wouldn't doubt if the Xbox One is again shipped with low quality crap that is stuffed into that box.

    I've always liked my system laying down. Kind of surprised they didn't design it to go either way though. I know a few people who like theirs vertical. Was the 360 designed for both ways or did it just stand up?

    Same. I just don't trust my consoles/myself enough to keep consoles vertical.

    No big deal. I wouldnt trust mine standing up unless it was in a secure spot for fear of it being knocked on its side while a disc was spinning

    You call that a scratch - I call that leaving your discs on the floor and stepping on it.

    I have tried scratching a blu-ray (bonus disc from one of my movies) and it is VERY difficult to damage, you really have to put some work into it to scratch it like that photo!

    Would this make you feel better:

    It's MUCH harder to scratch a Bluray than a DVD, but Bluray can DEFINITELY be scratched. Bluray is also easier to break than a DVD is.

    Bluray disks are not the hardest substance on earth. They won't scratch through normal use, but if you think they can't be scratched at all grab your favorite game disk and a quartz crystal, and give that disk a good hard rubbing with the corners of the crystal and see what happens.

    i hope i wasn't coming off as criticizing you, i didn't aim it at you or the fact about the scratches. just the picture that was demonstrating the fact. the picture wasn't the best example, but the video was better :P. to go back to the topic, microsoft could easily remedy the vertical console situation with an optional stand. sort of like what sony did on the first slim version of the ps3. they knew it wasn't the most stable playstation when it went vertical, that's why it had a stand that was optional. if the console falling isn't the issue, they could at least put a disclaimer on the manual stating that the console isn't designed to be vertical and may damage the game disk if done so. (really, i think its an oversight on their part though. they cant just look at the "80%" that have the console horizontal and ignore the "what if's", plan for the unexpected :P not everyone that buys high end electronics is intelligent, they just have to money for the facade.
