Seeing Microsoft make such a big deal about being able to put the Xbox One X on its side (with or without a vertical stand) and even packaging a stand in with the Project Scorpio limited edition made me wonder how many people actually put their console vertically. I personally never put them up like that in fear of scratching the disc (this was mainly a thing during the Xbox 360 era) but I wondered how the opinions were divided.
So I turned to Twitter and asked our followers what they think:
Question: How do you position your console? Would love to hear from as many people as possible so please RT ?

It seems like only a minority is putting theirs upright and those that do swear by the vertical stand:
The tip over and break fear is real

Xbox one horizonal, PS4 vertical with stand

But perhaps it’s just the fact that you’d have to pay for a vertical stand, as having the stand included with the Xbox One X Scorpio seems to have turned some people to the other side (terrible pun intended):
Horizontally since most consoles I've owned only allow for it. Got the Scorpio edition though so that might be my first vertical w/ stand

How do you put your console? Do you think it’s worth the additional development effort (adjusting the hardware to support it) just to be able to put it upright?
