    Xbox smells like a chemical smell..


    I've had the xbox series x for 5 days now. I've noticed a slight chemical smell and thought it was just normal with new electronics. It's the 5th day and the smell is filling up my room and is becoming unbearable. Does this smell eventually go away? I've never had an electronic smell this long before. Hoping it goes away..

    :)

    Game manuals.......or lack of

    I never read them anyway.

    Its actually the manual that adds to the majority of the new game smell. Due to the chemicals used in the printing process.

    Why Don't You Buy Used Games?

    Say, did you know that the chemical for that "new car smell" is the same thing they put into ping-pong balls?

    Seriously, cut open a ping-pong ball and take a whiff.

    No, it's not toxic.

    Could we see RAM upgrade announcement for Gamescon?

    The inside of a new blu-ray box smells awesome, hope the One games have that too. New electronics just smell awesome. Smells like victory haha

    I like smelling new things, my kindle case i bought still has the factory fresh smell, nothing like that new smell.

    Although I don't smell the foam and things I do love the new smell of things, I don't think its been updated though

    I don't savour unboxing though, get it out and plug it in, turn the box upside down and shake it!

    What's the first thing you'll do when you get your Xbox One?

    Okay is smelling the Xbox something like smelling a new car?

    I have seen people do that.

    I can´t understand it but oaky if this is all it means :p

    [/quote]That smell of new factory plastic and wrapping is like stepping into a sneaker store or new car and getting that new freshness smell!!!! I might go as far as too say it is like the smell of a new marker or gasoline!!!! You know what I also like is
    the feel off the box unopened. Nothing like the seconds before opening that fresh new box/toy...
    OH MY!
