Xbox One launched at midnight in various locations throughout the world today, and below is a video of just one of the launch festivities held in its honor.

Filmed during GAME’s midnight opening at the pop up store inside the Trocadero Entertainment Complex in Piccadilly Circus, the video features Microsoft’s corporate vice president Phil Harrison discussing the festivities and you get to hear from Charlie Pullbrook – the first customer to walk away with one of the shiny new boxes.
