Xbox Series X Launch results in Record-breaking Sales and “smoky” Buzz



Funny Bogus Attempt to revive the ‘ole “overheating” controversy  

Two of the world biggest players in the video gaming world have just released their next-gen consoles days apart from one another.  That’s big, and it’s time to evaluate.  

Many were able to preorder their consoles and others took their chance on launch day.  For those fans that are now opening and starting-up their new hardware – reports have surfaced of some, interesting issues… Even with the Series X only being 3 days old, already, it’s managed to start some major controversy. Videos have begun surfacing showing smoke coming from the top of the console, as if the Xbox was overheating so badly that it was smoking.  Next, Gamers took to social media to comment on the video posts questioning if these videos were legit or fake.  

One Twitter user even posted a video to recreate the smoky effect, and show that it was ultimately achieved by blowing vape smoke into the console, and, in fact was not due to any type of overheating malfunction of the unit. 

An official spokesperson for Microsoft felt the need to publicly comment and shared the following response on its Twitter account:

The Xbox launch which by now everyday already knows, took place on November 10th, with the Series X retailing at $499 and Series S for $299.  The newest console will deliver backward compatibility to the vast majority of Xbox One games, even some Xbox 360 titles.  Unlike the PS5 launch that announced that you could only purchase online, Microsoft made no such statement.  Therefore gamers can in addition to scouring online, check your local retail stores for inventory.   

So you’ve managed to purchase the next-gen console?  Now the fun part, playing new games!   One game we’ve had our eyes on is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.  The game follows a group of Vikings, in an open-world RPG, traveling outside Norway to new life in England.
