A Brazillian YouTuber has his hands on the Xbox Series X a little over a week early, and he's provided a teardown video that shows just how stuffed Microsoft's black tower really is. Upon its reveal, the Xbox Series X's strange size was a big talking point. The console, which was seemingly designed to be vertical rather than the more traditional horizontal, resembled a miniature PC tower. While gamers compared it to a fridge because of that slab shape and its perceived size, it wound up being the smaller of the two next-gen machines this holiday.

Sony has already provided an official teardown of its PlayStation 5 in a manner that fits perfectly with the culture of the tech giant. In the video, a man clinically takes apart the machine bit by bit over seven minutes in a stark white room. It gave players a chance to look at every perceivable part of the machine before they brought it into their home, including the seemingly easy to remove white plastic flaps on either side. While many assumed that this would lead to customization options both official and unofficial, Sony has already shut down one attempt to sell console shells for its hardware.

Brazillian YouTuber Detonating Gueek is providing the Xbox side of the teardown equation for the time being, although in an unofficial capacity. Detonating Gueek shows that all it takes to reveal the innards of Microsoft's most powerful console is removing two screws and a panel. The back has almost no room to breathe, with disc drives stacked on top of SSDs like a particularly well-crafted Resident Evil 4 inventory. Detonating Gueek starts to pull out the parts and even reveals one hidden secret, a small Master Chief helmet icon printed on the fan at the top of the device. Considering how important Halo Infinite was going to be at one point to the console's launch, that's a nice touch.

While the fan comes off easily thanks to its simple PC-like connector, the rest of the hardware is packed in there enough that the video's host doesn't remove it. He also showcases the vertical stand on the console, which has been confirmed to be a permanent part of the Xbox Series X's outer shell. Despite all that, all the Xbox's hardware is accessible enough that it should make the console fairly easy to clean, especially for players who already have cans of air at the ready from the PC battlestation.

With only a little over a week to go before the launch of the Xbox Series X in North America, it's nice to get an inside look at where each purchaser's money is truly going. The Series X appears to be a powerhouse because of its innards, which are tightly packed and vented with a console-sized fan at the top and holes everywhere. While it's unclear if the rumored heating issues will actually surface when players get it into their homes, most signs point to smooth sailing and amazing looking 4K gaming for next-gen purchasers.

Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S launch on November 10.
