Microsoft Cools Concerns About Xbox Series X Heat Production

There's been plenty of discussion over the past few days about whether the Xbox Series X runs overly hot, although the vast majority of reports have suggested the console's heat production is nothing unexpected.

Now, GM of Xbox Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg has responded personally to those rumours and reports, explaining that the heat leaving the console is "not significantly different than Xbox One X."

"The console will output system heat out of the exhaust, just as any other console will. Our engineering team confirmed the heat leaving the console is not significantly different than Xbox One X. This matches my experience at home quiet, fast & impressive power for the size."

So, there you go! We've heard it directly from Microsoft - there shouldn't be anything to worry about in terms of the heat the console gives off, and it ultimately shouldn't run much hotter than the Xbox One X.
