Internal developer documentation for the Xbox One appears to have leaked on the Internet—and after scanning through the files, it appears that there are some interesting things we can learn from it.

So you pulled out the big guns and you got your son (age 27 or otherwise) a console. You're justifiably excited about the Christmas morning surprise, but there's one thing you must absolutely remember to take care of before you wrap that gadget gift: Update the firmware. Trust us.
