The world’s most powerful console, the Xbox One X, is finally here. In it you’ll find 4K capability, huge amounts of raw processing power, and a quality build. If Microsoft ever made a premium console with the immense capabilities necessary to push boundaries, it’s the Xbox One X. However, for some users, that tremendous power backslashed in a way no one expected.

Xbox One X is so lit that it can literally catch fire

Microsoft has already experienced issues with Xbox power cords and power supplies back in 2005 after some of them caught fire — something that might be the case with its newest console entry.

Here’s the photo of the burned-out console one Redditor posted on the dedicated thread with an explanation:

Xbox One X caught fire

To be clear I was playing when this happened. Just worried about a short…

”That is the same thing i said after mine did this. i was just happy that i was there playing when it happened. so it did not get out of control…

Now, even though this provoked some legitimately hilarious comments and that Microsoft Support, as stated by the original poster, acted professionally, we must ask: is there a risk for this to happen on the larger scale? Is the Xbox One X the hottest console for this holiday season?Taking into consideration he had used the console for only 3 hours before it burst into flames, we’re not sure what to think.

Since the Xbox One X is a premium0priced console in comparison to its competition, it’s fair to expect a premium experience without these issues, no matter how isolated they are. For the time being, we can only wait and see how this will unfold.

What are your thoughts on this? Will this affect your opinion on Xbox One X? Feel free to tell us in the comments below.
