Microsoft Has Responded To The Smoking Xbox One Console Claims
Reports have been circulating about smoking, or amber light Xbox One consoles. The claims have yet to be substantiated by any video or pictorial evidence. Due to the severity of the claims I felt compelled to reach out to Microsoft for official word on the subject. The response I received was exactly what I’d suspected all along. A Microsoft representative did some checking, double checking, and triple checking for official Xbox One support inquiries that reference smoking consoles or “amber lights” on power bricks and responded with this statement,
“The situation described is not something we’re seeing. If customers are experiencing any issues, they should contact Xbox Support at http://support.xbox.com.”
“To clarify: that’s correct; it’s not something that the support team is seeing.” – Microsoft Representative
I wasn’t at all surprised to hear this response. In this day and age it’s stupid simple to document a claim. Snap a damn photo, take a video; it’s all built into your phone. If you’re going to make a claim that could possibly devalue a product or hurt a brand, you’d better substantiate it. If you aren’t able to do so; don’t open your mouth in the first place. Nobody wants to smell it; it’s full of shit.
Editors Note: My attitude towards these claims doesn’t reflect the outlet that reported them, only the users that made the false claim.
