An (already) finicky disc drive for the Xbox Series X?
However, apart from the Xbox Series X which emit a thick smoke (a controversy to which Microsoft has officially reacted), it seems that some models of Xbox suffer from a serious problem affecting the disc player mainly.

Obviously, each launch of a new console is also accompanied by its share of malfunctions, and like the Nintendo Switch in March 2017, there is no doubt that Sony’s PS5 will also show some signs of weakness among some users. ” That’s the game ” as they say…
