That's not to say that some people haven't had problems with their absolute units. In 24 hrs more new consoles sold, in more countries, than ever before.

We recently spotted a video of an Xbox Series X dramatically emitting smoke from the top vent doing the rounds on Twitter. It is not known what is causing these issues, but the random shutdowns can be linked to overheating.

The smoky videos of Xbox Series X's seemingly about to blow up are just a trick that many have been playing from their homes. The devs have shared more info on the game's Xbox Series X|S enhancements, as well as more enhancement updates to come later this year.Over on the Rocket League site, the game's developers break down the Xbox Series X|S enhancements already available, as well as those to follow later.

Vape smoke is not actually smoke, it's a mix of propylene glycol, glycerine, nicotine, flavourings, and a hint of metal nanoparticles, all of which should be kept away from the insides of a new console.

The Xbox Series X is the continuity candidate.

The reason why the vape smoke exits through the vent is because of how the console is designed.

The development has resulted in the official Xbox Twitter account releasing a statement today, pleading with users not to blow vape smoke into their consoles.

The Reddit thread includes several reports of users receiving DOA Xbox Series X units, units that completely shut down after just a couple of hours of use, overheating units, ones that sound like a refrigerator from the '80s, and even ones with a faulty disc drive.

Those who have uploaded these videos claim the console caught fire and began letting out smoke but it turns out that these videos are most likely fake.
