Oh Dear! Xbox Series X Having Issues Already Just Two Days After Launch
“The smart move is never buy a product the release day, be it a console or a car,” a Twitter user wrote. This advice may have just come a bit too late as people who bought the Xbox Series X on launch day are already complaining of some issues.
Microsoft had launched its next-gen gaming consoles; Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on 10th November 2020. Many who had pre-ordered the device have gotten it and had the opportunity to test it; the feedbacks are worrying.
Tom Warren, an editor at tech blog, The Verge, had asked people to come forward with issues relating to their Xbox Series X. Here are some of the problems that early users of Microsoft’s next-gen console are facing:
I still have the 4K 120fps VRR problem, Valhalla just crashes the XSX. When I use 4K 60fps VRR there is no problem. I gamed for 9 hours yesterday, 6 on 120fps crashed 3 times and 3 hours on 60fps and no crashes. ( this is on a LG CX Oled )

Only problem I’ve had is Forza Horizon crashing and shutting down my system. The controller stays on tho but you have to manually press the power on button for it to come back on.

However, while some of the reported issues seemed genuine, there are some that were fake. Particularly, there was a now debunked video of an Xbox Series X engulfed in smoke. It turned out that someone had poured vape smoke on the console.
The incident had even led Xbox to Tweet in its humorous fashion:
We can’t believe we have to say this, but please do not blow vape smoke into your Xbox Series X.
