It all started with a tweet from an Xbox Series X owner,
. In a video tweeted on Xbox Poland, Adamowicz captures what appears to be streaming from the top of the console after just a few minutes of turning it on. Another Twitter user,
@XboxPL spotkała mnie niemiła niespodzianka zaraz po uruchomieniu nowego sprzętu... 💔. Interfejs byl jedynie w Menu, po minucie/dwóch użytkowania pojawił się zaledwie kłębek dymu... Czy w tej sytuacji mogę liczyć na wymianę sprzętu? Z góry dzięki za pomoc! pic.twitter.com/E4A4UzU132— Arek Adamowicz (@Arek_Adamowicz) November 11, 2020
a similar video.
This nigga Xbox is smoking pic.twitter.com/Hqo7QHPO1F— 𝓑𝓮𝓪𝓾𝓽𝔂 (@NICKBLanco_) November 11, 2020
However, other Twitter users said the smoke looked suspiciously like the smoke produced by vape juice. The effect would be easy to create as the Xbox Series X takes warm air from below and loudly pushes it upwards
. All someone would have to do is take a big punch of their vapor, blow it into the bottom opening where the Xbox Series X draws cool air, and then it’s pulled out by the other fan at the top.

Os dejo un video MIO explicando porque es Fake lo de la consola "Quemada" y como han logrado este efecto incluso estando la consola "APAGADA" pic.twitter.com/LfXzIBSu6N
, his Xbox mishap is no joke, and unlike the Xbox Studio video posted on Twitter, we don’t see anyone blowing smoke on the bottom of the console. Speaking to Gizmodo, Adamowicz claims it happened a few minutes after his first launch and he is looking for a replacement.
Yes, because it shut down and smoke started flying. It has not restarted again. Unfortunately, this is not a joke.— Arek Adamowicz (@Arek_Adamowicz) November 11, 2020
That doesn’t automatically rule out the possibility of clever video editing. The smoke coming from the Adamowicz console and the smoke coming from the Xbox Studio console look similar. Adamowicz denied it.
Regardless of whether these Xboxes really went up in flames, Microsoft is investigating the potential problem. “We take all product safety reports seriously and our products meet or exceed industry standards. We are in the process of carrying out further research, ”a Microsoft spokesman told Gizmodo.
In our own tests, we found that the Xbox Series X emitted a lot of heat from the ventilation slots after several hours of play, up to 46 degrees Celsius. The temperature is not hot enough to set the components on fire. Digital Foundry measured a peak power consumption of 211W, which is much lower than the console’s 315W power supply, and a maximum internal temperature of 62 ° C.
These temperatures and power consumption would not cause the Xbox Series X to catch fire unless the wiring or components themselves were seriously compromised. Given that this isn’t a widespread problem right now, it doesn’t seem like there is anything to worry about with an Xbox Series X. But if your Series X goes up in smoke, unplug it immediately and if you have the chance, reach me at [email protected].
