Xbox One consoles begin shipping to some lucky consumers early

Some lucky SOBs have received their Xbox One consoles already (NASDAQ:MSFT)

The Xbox One doesn't launch for just over a week, but some lucky gamers have received their next generation Microsoft consoles, and provided the Internet with quite the weekend buzz. First off, the mandatory day-one update was required, something I thought MS wouldn't pump out until the day of the Xbox One's release, which is a good thing for these lucky gamers.

Next up we have the game installation sizes, which seem to vary between 12GB or so right up to 43GB for NBA 2K14, which is just gigantic. Call of Duty: Ghosts is a 39GB installation, Madden 25 is a 12GB installation, and for a few others we have: NBA Live 14 at 9GB, Forza Motorsport 5 at 31GB, Ryse: Son of Rome is a 34GB installation, and Dead Rising 3 is 19GB. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag slots onto the Xbox One's HDD at 20GB, which isn't too bad, with a game like Just Dance 2014 taking up more with a 22GB installation.

 

Someone has said that the Xbox One takes around 17 seconds to boot up and get into the dashboard, which isn't too bad at all.
