Xbox One just launched in New Zealand and this guy is the first person to buy one over the counter.

Phil Harrison posted the following tweet just now:

I really hope you get yourself some decent sleep tomorrow Dan.

Meanwhile Ryse: Son of Rome reviews aren’t doing so well, and here’s a round-up of all the Xbox One console reviews so far.

    If he dashes home and plugs it in real quick he’ll have all that cloud power all to himself.

    This sort of thing makes me feel so good. I’m a nerd, but still not a will-camp-outside-for-days-for-a-new-console.

    Speaking personally just for myself as a gamer, the Xbox brand has been on a steady decline since the release of their first console.

    That machine and the beginning of the 360 were more hardcore-geared which suited me perfectly.

    In recent years the addition of Kinect, losing devs like Bungie/Bizarre etc, the whole “TV” thing and their terrible policy debacle has helped me completely lose interest in a brand I once loved.

    I hope all X1 owners love their purchases but this time I’m out…

    Bizzare was never owned by MS.

    Would you have preferred they kept Bungie against their will? Or allow Bungie to keep existing as its own entity and continue creating games?

    @18 – I know Bizarre weren’t owned by MS but they produced superb exclusives for them.

    I wouldn’t have preferred MS to keep Bungie against their will. I was just trying to put the point across that MS lost a series of very good developers that were creating amazing, exclusive content for them which they don’t seem to have replaced…

    Sony: “Congrats, you’re the first person to buy the console on launch day!”
    Microsoft: “Congrats, we disabled the console for anyone that got it early so we can say you’re the first person to own the console!”
