Vertical, this reduces heat flow through your 360 system, keeping it cooler, reducing chances of red rings of death (RROD).

Is it better to keep your xbox 360 vertical or horizontal?

It really doesn't matter as long as you have your Xbox 360 in a wide open space, free of dust and smoke, on a hard surface such as wood and not near any heat sources such as radiators and cookers. Ive had mine vertically on wood for a while now and ive had no problems what so ever, no scratched discs or overheating and no freezing or lag. Hope this helped.
