Want to have a look at the Xbox One? Early console owner shares his screen

Xbox One

We know you're all excited to soon be able to pick up the Xbox One, power on the beast and smash some skulls in Ryze or net some superb shots in Fifa 14. Until the launch date comes around (November 22nd, should you require the friendly reminder), we've got some videos to keep us occupied, courtesy of owners who received their Xbox One units prematurely from retailers.

We recently looked at "Moonlight Swami," who received the console early and actually managed to get cracking, updating the console and signing in. Unfortunately, Microsoft banned his Xbox Live ID and has now prevented the console from being used - we suspect these restrictions will only be in place until the 22nd. Today there are a number of new videos showing off the Xbox One.

Here's a look at the hardware:

Moving onto the dashboard, which is where you'll spend most of the time when not running games or apps (unfortunately, they had their account banned too):

Finally the controller and headset:

Enjoy the videos while they remain published and available. We imagine Microsoft will be on the hunt to pull these down too. So, who's stoked about the Xbox One?

Quantano says:

murtagh360 says:

Z10YkakPES says:

I want that ON sound on my Lumia as a text, I bet eventually ill get it

Z10YkakPES says:

Not the loading sound, but when you press the button on Xbox one

vnarine1 says:

second link. not the best quality but best atm.

Drehood says:

Lol, same here. Can't wait.

GrapeEyes says:

I can't afford one :(

MrSimmix says:

Same here :'(

swizzlerz says:

We knew the price 6 months ago. 499/6=83.00 to save a month. I did last month to save and its mine!

Pretty much what I've done. As I like to put it, only $35.14 per paycheck.

jlynnm350z says:

Got to wait till spring. * cries out in pain * dogs howling in background.

Shantek says:

Last time i checked, it was called "Ryse" :)

dlusted says:

I'll be at my local GAME 11pm on the 21st to get mine!
Can't wait!!!!

Don't forget you can go up wed or Thurs and pay for everything in full and get a queue jump pass. Then go to the midnight launch and get to the front =) That's my plan Oooosh!

dlusted says:

Wish I could, but due to work I won't be able to get down to pay.... Unless I get the Mrs to pay for me

swizzlerz says:

I preordered from Microsoft should start shipping on 15th. Just got an email last night.

HarkAtYou says:

I'll just sit in my office in the warm and wait for the email to say it's at reception... then take the rest of the day off :D

jangula_99 says:

Ha ha that is a great idea.

scottaii says:

Can you scroll through the dashboard using hand gestures? i haven't seen it at all in any of the recent videos (although i remember seeing it in one of the first ads)

Zeeshan360 says:

Yeah .. U can, the guy in the Skydrive demo said u can navigate the UI via voice , controller & gestures

Can buy one no probs but remember the issues with the early Xenon 360 consoles. Will maybe wait until a newer revision hits.

drelewis says:

mine is being shipped to my house. Only issue is that i am working away and wont get to it for a few days after release. :-(

Rishicash says:

No problem. I'll be happy to sign for it for you. :)

xmarklive says:

Any suggestions on what's the best launch title to get... As I'm poor and can only afford one game ???

Zeeshan360 says:

Forza 5 or Battlefield 4

dbam987 says:

A safe bet is either Ryse or Battlefield 4 (in that order). If you're a racing nut, Forza 5 would be on top of my list (and is). I think Killer Instinct can be had for around $20, and additional characters would be made available at $5 a pop from what I've read around the Internet.

Edit: I switched out Call of Duty Ghosts with Battlefield 4. Lots of good reviews for BF4 over Ghosts at the moment. Note: I own neither of those titles, yet!

MrSimmix says:

I'd go for battlefield 4 or COD Ghosts first.

Agent-P says:

Titanfall doesn't release until next year. I'm looking forward to that.

Russell M says:

Forza,  Ryse,  Deadrising 3,  BF4

xmarklive says:

I said one people Lmao all you nuts gave me more than one.lol

xmarklive says:

I pre order forza but I play racing game in blocks so I'm thinking of getting ryse... Which do u guys think is the best 1

I've preordered COD:Ghosts, RYSE: Son of Rome, Dead Rising III & FIFA 14. Me and my daughter gonna have a ball. Plus just ditched TiVo for a Comcast HD DVR in anticipation for my XBOX ONE. Happy for my PS4 brothers this week knowing mine is around the corner.

jangula_99 says:

I am going to get gamefly and try all of them for one month. Pick my favorite and buy it. That or demo each one, assuming they have demos.

Arsenic17 says:

Why couldn't they send ab early console to a non redneck/scrub? Pretty lame videos tbh. Hope the cocky little whippersnapper never gets unbanned!

Zeeshan360 says:

Lol .. He will get unbanned on 22nd according to Major Nelson :P

Lol, I was laughing at that accent too! YEEEHAAAWW!

xmarklive says:

Hey I'm a black guy that like rednecks...help me

Curtieson says:

At least he was nice enough to show us the WiFi port on the back of the console. Most people from the uninformed parts of the world still call that Ethernet.

Likki says:

How can I get XboxOne 4 FREE

simphf says:

Rob someone*

*not an endorsement for illegal activity

Just get $499 and give it to a store that has them and you'll get it for free!

Rishicash says:

Marry up. Marry well.

All I want to see is the new Nokia Beamer app being snapped on Xbox One.

SleepyTheDon says:

They are only Banned Until 11/22

smontoya2 says:

XB1 COD GHOSTS says it needs at least 48 gb of storage to play...seriously! Maybe I'm confused?

Deaconclgi says:

Bluray disks hold 50GB single layered so if a game came on a BD disc, that makes sense for the game to be close to 48GB for a download. Now I am only comparing storage size of the physical disc vs download size. I don't claim to know why COD takes up that much space, only that 50GB is what developers have been working with when using Bluray discs to store their games so it is realistically possible for a game to take up 48GB.

Arsenic17 says:

Yeah developers can get real lazy now that they have 50gb to play around with. There is less compression. Leas corners are cut. They just don't need to waste time compressing and short cutting like they used to. All games will prob be 30-50gb. With that said. It is good because if they want to get lots of content onto one disk they can now.

WinEXMan says:

Dead Rising 10 FPS / 720p, ready to cancel my preorder

freshfelicio says:

lol 10fps. your troll is to obvious bro.

mdram says:

4:3 Video...:P

Tjalsma says:

As much as I don't blame anyone, I can't help but feel a little disappointment in almost everything electronic related these days.  I don't mean to be a downer but I miss the days of being completely surprised by stuff - that's just completely gone these days.  Every single piece of information is available so far in advance that the suprise factor is completely void.  It's partially my fault for viewing news sites constantly but oh well...


MJRusso45 says:

I'll be getting an XBox One when titanfall releases. Until then there's just not enough to entice me.

I take zero grain of salt from these 2 moron about connection, 3 of the dumbest videos I've ever seen. Between the 2 idiots they can't figure out how to connect, and I'm guessing they owned a ps3 before they buy that XboxOne. You have to set up a username, you don't just connect by plugging it in...but maybe just maybe they'll figure in out in about a week. I can't stand stupid idiots who move over from PS with that retarded OS system. They act like every damn thing suppose to connect by magic and bitch and complain about paying for Xbox live like their ass didn't know you had to pay, and even if you don't pay the free account is the you'll for just online play. It doesn't take a genius, it's just common sense!

Arsenic17 says:

Ah should have preordered thru amazon. I was rushed to get mine when MS store offers day on first. Now I have to pay $50 in tax and also don't get my 5% back from chase freedom. That was a $75 dumb decision....

TheJoester09 says:

I didn't think I wanted one at first. but now I do and I wish so bad that I had pre-ordered. Anyone know about how long it will be until this will be available to those that didn't pre-order? And by that I mean you just walk into the store on a random evening and walk out with one. I talked to a few retailers today and they weren't sure because they expect that for the foreseeable future they'll sell out almost as soon as they get them in, and unfortunately I can't wait around to be one of the first ones in because of my job. :(

How long was it before the 360 became regularly available?

SmoothDog says:

I think you can go to a gamestop and put one on hold for you. Just pay the $499 and they'll give you a card to pick it up on the 22nd anytime. This saves them and you time.

TheJoester09 says:

Interesting...I won't have the money until this Friday, but I may look into this. Thanks for the tip!

SwimSwim says:

Any Day One editions still avalible? Just curious, I'm too broke to get one, but I am curious.

TheJoester09 says:

Just wanted to say thanks again for the tip! Got mine at 4:30 today, picking up at 11 tonight. Good lookin' out!

Can't wit till Xmas!

SwimSwim says:

Something tells me that constantly posting videos of this device, that Microsoft clearly doesn't want you to have, isn't going to help your case when trying to appeal to have your account unbanned. ;)

Zenpharaoh says:

Got my day one edition. Pre ordered during e3, and cannot wait! Getting ghost and powerstar golf (Mario golf, hot shots golf inspired golf game). Gonna be an awesome time! Get ready!

aliencatos says:

I hope for them that the ban is temporary...

koech kibet says:

i cant delete temporaly files in my windows phone how do i go about it


laserfloyd says:

I love that it's just on. I mean I know that freaks some people out but I hate bootup/startup times. Just saying 'xbox on' and then going into Netflix or Xbox Video will be awesome.  I'm in the family entertainment camp vs hardcore gamer. This thing looks awesome. White one please? :)
