Microsoft’s Xbox One X dominates the console power war, with its six teraflop GPU and 12GB of GDDR5 RAM, but one feature fans were unsure to even hope for is indeed included. It can stand vertically.
According to Microsoft’s official description of the console, the Xbox One X can be placed in either a horizontal or vertical orientation, regardless of the system being on or off, much like the Xbox One S before it. The description also reveals an “optional stand” will be available for purchase, with no current pricing or release date available at this time.
The current Xbox One S stand retails for $20, which could be an indicator that the new version for the latest console won’t be too far off from that price. Of course, putting two large books on either side could work as a makeshift stand, but Microsoft doesn’t endorse that, and neither does EGM.
The Xbox One X is the smallest Xbox yet, while also outperforming every current console on the market. The system is set to launch on November 7th, 2017 for $499.
