Just like the Xbox One S, Microsoft's new, more powerful Xbox One X console can stand vertically. Xbox director Albert Penello confirmed on Twitter that you can orient the console vertically with an optional accessory that Microsoft will sell separately.

"Yes there is an optional stand for vertical!" Penello said.

The Xbox One S vertical stand is priced at $20. Given that the Xbox One X is smaller than the S, it might be that there is a new stand specific to that device, though there does not appear to be a product page available for it yet on Microsoft's website. We will report back with more information as it becomes available.

The Xbox One X launches on November 7, priced at $500 in the US. International pricing is £449, €499, CA$599, and AU$649.

GameSpot spoke with Microsoft this week about the console's $500 price point, and the company believes no other console out there is doing what Xbox One X does.
