He does not sound like someone who is even slightly surprised that his xbox is smoking, nor does he seem like he cares. Plus, all that shifty wiring in the background leads me to conclude this guys a frickin jaggaloon.

probably fake, I cant imagine anything in its hardware is flammable, and for the plastic melt and start producing smoke it would have to way hotter than it could possibly get.

This video evidence confirms the earlier reports about smoking xboxes.

Your first source has since posted a statement from Microsoft that this issue, if it exists, hasn't been seen by their service center. Your second source cites the first one.

Also, as 'video evidence' goes, it's currently sharing a channel with someone who posted three videos of themselves urinating, so I'd consider looking for a somewhat more reliable report.

Hey OP here, I updated the description of the video for the idiot's who think i would keep the most expensive out of 4 consoles on the floor and not with the rest on the entertainment center
http://youtu.be/tkVJ-wqK9wk
Now i can assure you i did not act a fool and purposely try to destroy my console.

why put it on the carpet might as well tape the vents closed


Though I think this is a case of blowing smoke into the console and turning the fan off...


Why would someone do that though?

Why would someone fake such a serious incident and make a public video that falsely claims a product poses a very real threat of causing a fatal fire?

If he was faking it, then couldn't Microsoft's lawyers sue him for defamation?

He'd either have to be a colossal idiot or have supreme confidence in his ability to defeat Microsoft's legal team to be publicly making such a false and malicious claim... which isn't to say he's not faking it or that he has a good lawyer.

Sony Fanboys do that sort of thing all of the time....


So your saying Sony fanboys would buy a 500 console, giving the "opposition" a sale, only to sabotage it on film?

Seems legit.
