Follow-up: Some Xbox One Consoles Are Now In Customer Hands

Early Xbox One UI Shot

One out the 150 customers is enjoying his console ban.

After Friday evening saw Target expertly send out 150 regular edition Xbox Ones to customers ahead of release, one user, @Moonlightswami, (aka André Weingarten) has emerged from the situation with a whole new community of fans.

After posting a YouTube video of the unboxing the Xbox One, sharing screenshots of the UI, store, and 'Call of Duty: Ghosts' through Twitter, and narrating the mostly very favorable aspects of his experience through early Saturday morning, @Moonlightswami went to sleep having draw the ire of some Microsoft mechanism, with a copyright strike on YouTube and having had his Xbox One console banned.

By mid Saturday though, it seems the swell of support from fans glad to finally see the Xbox One without its customary PR filter had Major Nelson reaching out to mend fences with the user. Though the console ban will stay in place until at least close to release, the copyright YouTube strike was removed, a big issue for @Moonlightswami's budding sports game videos, and special guest status was attained for a major Xbox One launch event. It seems that for the moment, @Moonlightswami needs to keep the details of his experience under wraps, and as of early Monday morning offline 'Call of Duty: Ghosts' play is prohibited on his Xbox One by the ban.
