Lucky Gamer Gets Xbox One Way Early, Starts Spilling Details [UPDATE]

Like lots of other people, YouTube dude Moonlight Swami pre-ordered an Xbox One. Unlike lots of other people, he just got his. And he's sharing loads of info about the console right now.

Like eBay user priceless228, Moonlight Swami claims to have gotten his Target pre-order of Microsoft's next-gen console two weeks before it's supposed to make its big debut. Too bad it won't play any games without that crucial DayOne firmware update.

Update: Moonlight Swami appears to have downloaded that Day One update and has been feverishly updating his Twitter feed with info. He’s excited:

He’s downloaded the system’s mandatory day-one update:

He’s sizing up games on the marketplace:

He’s taking a tour of the system:
