Microsoft is a month away from the release of its next-generation consoles, the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Ahead of the launch, Microsoft has given access to the Xbox Series X to press outlets and YouTubers.

Some have reported the air coming out of the Xbox Series X is hot, however, Xbox games marketing GM Aaron Greenberg via Twitter says the heat output of the console isn't much different than the Xbox One X. This is after testing has been done by the engineering team. 

"The console will output system heat out of the exhaust, just as any other console will," Greenberg said. "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."

The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will launch on November 10 worldwide.

Heat output is just a matter of how much power draw a system has. Xbox One X had a power consumption of upto 180watts. Not sigificantly more than that? I would hope not.

A strange thing to complain about. I don't really see this as too much of a problem. So long aa there is no overheating, such as the X360 and PS3 had. And provided that the heat is not too excessive (which it shouldn't be).

Yeah, it can be as hot as it likes. As long as the heat is managed and dispersed the way it's supposed to... Idc.

I guess we will see how bad it really is in the near future. The OG Xbox 360 ran very hot from my memory.
