Some Xbox One pre-orders arrive 2 weeks earlier reveals that console comes with a 500MB patch for starters. It also took up to 17 seconds to begin operations. However, the sad news is that Xbox One early delivery has been banned now.

Xbox One is out now. Is not it amazing news? But it is sad to know that the early Xbox One delivery is banned now. Actually some Xbox One pre-orders arrive 2 weeks earlier than its launch date of November 22. Before ban, at least 3 early deliveries have been made. 2 of the 3 Xbox One consoles are delivered via Target. One console made a brief appearance on eBay at very high price with option to buy it now. But this offer was quickly removed. 

The few Xbox One consoles that made it alive out of the cage earlier have been tested and retested again and again. The information we have at our disposal from the experiments reveal quite a few things. For starters, the boot-up time is approximately 17 seconds. Meanwhile, the day-one update download is of 500 Megabytes . These were the few revelations we could gather about this product before the ban was put in place by authorities. A Twitter user @Moonlightswami is the source behind these details. He is continuously posting his first hands-on impressions of the device for quite some time.

As for the games they are galore. NBA 2K14 comes up to 43 Gigabytes. EA’s Madden and FIFA happen to be 12 Gigabytes and 8 Gigabytes respectively. Furthermore, Forza 5, Dead Rising 3 and Call of Duty: Ghosts clock in at 31, 19 and 39 Gigabytes each. That says a lot about this gamers’ delight. Multitasking is a cinch on the Xbox One. You may change from watching television to playing games and vice versa while your game will remain on same level. Then there are the Kinect and Skype facilities. Voice controllers are also there.

The Game DVR has a quality rating but not that excellent. Game DVR "appears to work well, snatching the last 30 seconds at will or recording 5 minutes at a time on command, he called its quality just alright, and not quite up to par with his existing capture PVR-to-YouTube setup," according to Engadget. This has invited criticism from the crowd of gamers. In fact, it is the only thing which is lacking in this otherwise excellent gadget. Coming to the sad news, the device has been banned. And this happened after its informal debut on YouTube. It is a tragedy alright but there is nothing that can be done since the law is the law.
