The Xbox Series X is only two days old and Microsoft has already been forced to tell people to not blow vape smoke into their consoles. Really.
Microsoft begrudgingly released a statement Wednesday telling people to not blow vape smoke into their Xbox Series X.

The statement comes after videos started going around showing smoke emitting from the newly-released next-gen console. It was later debunked that people were apparently turning the vertically-standing console off and blowing smoke directly into the vents to create this effect.
how to get your Xbox Series X to blow up:
1) buy a vape
2) blow vape into bottom of Xbox
3) feel proud of the smoke you created
4) post to Twitter and profit

The Xbox Series X was released on November 10, and while the smoking issue appears to be fake, the company wants to let gamers know that they’re here if any “non-vape related” problems were to arise.

Hi @jasonschreier. Is the disc drive on your Xbox Series X really loud? Trying to find out if they all run this noisy, or if I got a defective one. This is what mine does when I put in a 4K Blu. pic.twitter.com/N5K6jWNg7J

A potentially real issue seems to involve the sound coming from the disc drive when it’s operating.
So ya’all got extra money to literally blow.
