But as you can expect with the internet, videos similar to what you’ve seen above sometimes have a different context. In this case, it was found out that some users were simply vaping through the console’s vents to make the smoke rise up to the top.
Microsoft already said that it is investigating the issue when but please, don’t go vaping inside your Xbox Series X. There’s a good chance that the warranty may not cover it in case something happens.
We can't believe we have to say this, but please do not blow vape smoke into your Xbox Series X.
