In an interview with GameSpot, Xbox boss Phil Spencer answered one of the Xbox Series X’s biggest mysteries: do you have to tolerate a PC-tower-ish thing living in your entertainment system, or can you change its position so that it better resembles a traditional console? Spencer was happy to share that gamers can indeed lay the Series X flat: the system’s orientation wasn’t something that the Xbox team wanted to dictate. It was designed to “fade into the background.”

“The first thing I wanted to say is the [Xbox Series X’s] design works vertical or horizontal, just like the Xbox One S and Xbox One X,” he said. “We think that it’s not our job to dictate the orientation of our console in your home. That is up to you.”
