Microsoft offer to replace noisy Xbox One consoles

Microsoft will replace any Xbox One consoles that are creating an unusual amount of noise.

The issue, which affects just a “small number of Xbox One owners”, can be identified by a clicking noise coming directly from the console.

Microsoft told Kotaku: “We have heard that a small number of Xbox One owners in some situations may hear a noise from the console that is too loud.

“While this does not affect the safety or functionality of the system, we’re asking customers who believe they are experiencing this issue to contact Xbox Support: http://support.xbox.com. At the request of our customers, we are exchanging those consoles for new systems.”

The cause of the noise is not yet known.
