    I bet its user error, the idiot can't even record the video in the correct aspect ratio.
    Time will tell.

    I guess this is just another 180 from MS; they said XB1 would be the next water cooler, not the next water heater.

    Isolated case most likely.
    I wonder when a nuclear warhead goes off, does the frame rate of real life drop?

    If it was a widespread problem you might have a point. Otherwise, that's a silly assertion.

    I'm not saying the video is fake, but it does seem a little suspicious. The way the smoke comes out wispy and dissipates quickly across the whole top of the console. Mimics water vapor more than electronics burning. Kinda like if you spray a little water on the hood of a black car that's been sitting out in the hot sun for hours. It gets a little steamy.

    When wire rubber and insulation burns, it can be quite smokey due to the fact rubber is petroleum-based. Hot, melted solder can be wispy like water vapor, but is typically smokey rather than vapory.

    I wouldn't doubt it being fake. Kind of like that guy who posted a video of his PS4 shocking him when he touched the power button. This is a little more elaborate though if it is fake. I give him an A+ for creativity and effort.

    Then again.....maybe his X1 is about to explode. Hard to say for sure.

    That sucks. I honestly thought that MS would get Foxconn to at least apply thermal material and the heat sink properly. AS huge as that heat sink is I almost wonder if it needs the fan, but, yeah for it. However, I figured we'd just have false alarms where people who are unkempt and don't dust/compressed air clean their systems (while turned off) would be turning it on and THINK it was smoking due to dust being blown out of that giant top vent, the dust having settled in there being a gravity thing, during days they couldn't play.
    It sucks that they actually are seeing reports of this, just shouldn't be, lol.
