Watch the initial installation and setup of the new Xbox One (video)

While the world sits back and patiently waits for their Xbox One to hopefully arrive early or for the console to be released in stores, another lucky person has managed to get their hands on the console. This person was able to get an early shipment of the Xbox One from Target due to a system error, which was acknowledged by Microsoft yesterday.

“Due to a retail partner’s system issue, a very small number of Xbox One consoles were shipped to consumers before the 11/22 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,” Microsoft stated yesterday.

But we are not complaining. In these series of videos uploaded last night, we get to see the console’s ports, how its plugged in, and how its powered on. We also get to see the first-time installation set up, along with the new dashboard.

“I ordered my Xbox One from Target and they shipped it to me this week! I received it November 7th and began putting it to work. Xbox, however, did not like this and has decided to ban me from Xbox Live,” the lucky Xbox One owner stated. You can take a look at the videos below. Enjoy them before they get taken down!
