A man from Kansas finds his house on fire but that doesn't stop him from braving the flames to rescue his Xbox console.

Just how much do you value your games? Well, whatever the answer is, it might not match this man's zeal. An unnamed man from Kansas woke up early Friday morning to find his house engulfed in flames. While he was able to escape the fire, he charged right back in just to save his Xbox. Fortunately, the man did not sustain any major injuries and only suffered smoke inhalation in his quest to rescue his gaming console.

Fire officials blame the fire on an electrical junction box which has caused $80,000 in damages. Before you ask, the report does not state if the Xbox console was an Xbox 360 or an Xbox One, nor does it state if he managed to salvage his games or controllers.

Now, I know a lot of people are hardcore gamers, but let's hope that passion doesn't get in the way of sensibility if this ever happens to you. This begs the question: would you risk your life to run into a burning house to save your gaming console? If so, which gaming device would you do this for?

In other Xbox-related happenings, Microsoft has revealed its holiday quarter financials and Xbox One sales managed to hit an astounding $1.2 billion.
