Place your console horizontally (vertical positioning of the console is not supported) in an environment as follows:

  • On a stable surface
  • Well-ventilated, relatively cool, and away from direct heat sources
  • Uncluttered. Do not put other objects on, under, or right next to the console. For example, don’t put an object on the top right of your Xbox One console. This may block the vents and cause your console to overheat.
