Microsoft Responds to Xbox Vape Videos

 

When a new product doesn’t work as expected, people go and complain about it on the internet. Very little gets a company’s attention like the threat of bad publicity. However, there will always be people who simply want attention.

Dramatic videos of the Xbox Series X overheating and smoking began to attract attention. Without any research, the videos look terrible. People would start to wonder how bad the Xbox was designed, or how terrible Microsoft’s quality assurance is to let such a thing go on the market.

But it’s neither Microsoft nor the Xbox’s fault. The Xbox takes in cool air at its base, and expels hot air through the holes in the top of the console. So when a vaper blew clouds at the base of their Xbox, the vapor eventually came out through the top of the console. The result is a video of a heavily smoking Xbox. Some users even added strange sounds to their videos to make their breakdown videos more convincing.

The videos caught so much attention, the official Xbox Twitter account sent out a message regarding the trend.

Xbox tweet - We can't believe we have to say this, but please do not blow vape smoke into your Xbox Series X.

“We can't believe we have to say this, but please do not blow vape smoke into your Xbox Series X.”

We have to agree with Microsoft here. There’s no good reason to put vape inside your Xbox - the only electronics that e-liquids should be going in is e-cigarettes. Besides, aren’t there more entertaining things to do with a gaming console besides vaping in it?
