The weekend was a rocky one for Microsoft. They were lambasted hard by gamers over a customer gaining access to an Xbox One earlier than the officiated street date and proceeded to do what any excited hardcore gamer would do after become one of the first to own a next-generation console: he plastered the internet with videos and photos of his experience with the Xbox One.
The problem is that Target had a shipping error and accidentally sent out more than 150 Xbox One units two weeks before the official street date, to customers who had pre-ordered Microsoft's latest console. This resulted in Microsoft stepping in and, in a not-so-shocking twist, banning the legitimate Xbox One owners after they logged in to download the day-one patch to make their system more than just a silicon brick with a useless disc player. In addition to temporarily banning legitimate customers, Microsoft proceeded to flag photos and videos of the Xbox One from media sharing sites that popped up courtesy of the early adopters.
