Waiting for the Xbox One to launch? Unfortunately for those who are patient enough, it turns out that some fans have already received their deliveries. One lucky soul, who goes by the Twitter handle @moonlightswami, has published some media to the social network showing off the new console and revealing details about the launch titles.
As well as uploading numerous shots and whatnot, he was also able to confirm a 500MB day one patch, which was subsequently installed. According to the Twitter profile, the console took around 17 seconds to boot before being able to update the system. Unfortunately, we're unable to show the unboxing video as Microsoft acted quickly to have the video taken down.
Interestingly, here are the download sizes for upcoming titles:
- Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag – 20 GB
- Call of Duty: Ghosts – 39 GB
- Dead Rising 3 – 19 GB
- FIFA 14 – 8 GB
- Forza Motorsport 5 – 31 GB
- Just Dance 2014 – 22 GB
- LocoCycle – 13 GB
- Madden NFL 25 – 12 GB
- NBA 2K14 – 43 GB
- NBA Live 14 – 9 GB
- Ryse: Son of Rome – 34 GB
- Skylander SWAP Force – 15 GB
- Zumba Fitness: World Party – 24 GB
@moonlightswami confirmed that games are indeed playable after reaching a certain download percentage (50%). The console reportedly remains cool and silent, even after hours of use. Some other details included challenges, which appear to be temporary goals set for players to complete before the deadline hits (see below).
This story doesn't end on a light note, however. @moonlightswami has had his account banned by Microsoft, presumably until the console officially launches. We do believe he should be handed a unique achievement for being the first account banned in the next-gen. We urge you to check out his Twitter profile for more goodies and all the details (plus more photos). Excited for the Xbox One launch?
