Xbox One sent to buyers early

News: Xbox One consoles accidentally delivered early to some, according to reports - Xbox 360 - The Official Magazine

Been following this since last night. US retailer Target has sent out orders early, with one of the guys hooking up the console to the net, making videos and posting on his Twitter account. Obviously MS didn't like this and got the videos taken down and the console banned. But what the guy has been saying about the console has been positive

If MS unban the guy on release day it's not a problem. If they don't, they're in for (yet another) PR disaster.

Looks like Major Nelson is on the case though, could sort it for the guy (or he realised how bad this could turn out for him)

He might as well order a PS4 now, his XBL future is bleak ...

If IGN are to be believed it doesn't look like getting the console early will make much difference.

Xbox One Needs Mandatory Day One Update to do Anything - IGN

So, with a few hundred people downloading the patch plus other people downloading games all on the first day, who's willing to bet against server issues?

The bright side for me though is that even if Amazon live up to their reputation for delivering ON launch day rather than early, I shouldn't lose too much time on the rest of you.

Response from Microsoft

Quote:
The statement says: "Due to a retail partner's system issue, a very small number of Xbox One consoles were shipped to consumers before the November 22 street date. We're pleased to see the initial response to Xbox One has been so positive, but given we are still putting the finishing touches on our games, UI and online services, as well as confidential partner and media agreements, these consoles units will be restricted from connecting to Xbox Live until closer to our launch date."

It is, seeing as it was the retailer fault. Granted maybe the guy should have been a bit sensible and not post up videos of it, but MS just went at it like a bull in a china shop.

Also read that Major Nelson played a part in defusing the situation and made MS see sense
