Xbox Series X Smoking

There are a handful of console players that tend to steer clear of launch units.

Usually, this is due to the risk of a faulty batch.

It seems those that have these superstitions might have made the right choice this time around.

Some videos of the Xbox Series X have been making the rounds on social media.

In these videos, the console can be seen with smoke rising from its top, see below.

Players have also taken to Reddit to share their experiences, the thread can be found here.

User Ayrtonio_69 posted to the site with the title 'My Xbox Series X just started smoking'.

In the post, he said "Just been woken up (6am UK) to a sizzling sound"

"Thought to myself what the hell is that?"

"Turns out my brand new Xbox Series X is melting, smoke everywhere coming out the vent at the top."

Many are questioning whether most of the videos being shared are actually fake.

The smoke coming from the console actually looks a lot more like vapour and moves more like it than smoke would.

Nevertheless, it's not a good look for Xbox.

Fingers crossed, the issue, if true, will be resolved soon!
