Xbox One Unboxing

Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE’s Major Nelson, has done the official very first Xbox One unboxing! Let’s see what’s inside the Day One edition at launch.

To quote him about the unboxing: “Although we are still a few months away from the official release of Xbox One, I wanted to do a quick unboxing to show you what you can expect when you open your Xbox One.”

    What’s in the Xbox One Box:

    Xbox One console including a 500GB hard drive and slot-loading Blu-ray game & movie player.
    Xbox One wireless controller with AA batteries.
    Xbox One Kinect sensor with 1080p cameras and microphone.
    Xbox One headset, a wired mono voice-chat headset.
    HDMI cable capable of up to 4K HD TV resolution and 3D output.
    Xbox One power brick and cord.
    Xbox One manual and a logo sticker.
    • The Day One Edition, aside from having a commemorative controller, features a token code to unlock an exclusive Day One achievement.

    Note: The Xbox One console will now always come with a voice-chat headset to connect to the controller. Additionally, Microsoft revealed you can now turn off the Kinect camera & microphone and even disconnect it if you’re worried about privacy issues. — It looks like Microsoft has gone back on all the consumer-UNfriendly policies they announced at first, including the Xbox One Online DRM being removed and making the system Region Free like the PS4.

    Now we just need many must-have exclusive Xbox One games and it’ll be fun times for gamers everywhere… or at least those who can afford the $499 / €499 / £429 asking price in November 2013. 🙂

    Will you be getting an Xbox One at launch or further in the future?

      I might this in the future but I have my mid set on both a Wii U and a PSP right now

      There should be a law against console makers releasing more than one system per year. It’s too expensive and in general total overkill. I don’t think I have enough interest in both the Xbox One and PS4 so I’m still deciding… will get both eventually but which one first!?
      Rant over 🙂

      I am surprise that there is a unboxing video of Xbox One early, won’t they get fired for it…C_C

    • Nice, the Wii U has more games than Xbox One & PS4 this year anyway. Next year will be a different matter no doubt once they get more exclusives.

      I don’t know your reason, but since the PS Vita plays all digital PSP releases (Kingdom Hearts being the notable exception) so wouldn’t Vita be better unless you already own it?

    • Haha I hear that, my wallet can’t justify getting both.
      I’m not sure if they’ll both come out in the same month, but yeah, even the same year release rush does seem like “overkill”, the good kind, but still…

    • LOL! Major Nelson works for Microsoft’s Xbox Live division, that’s how he got a boxed console straight from the factory. He’s kind of like their unofficial public face for console news, even though they did finally start an official blog on 🙂

      I wood say if you are wanting to get the Xbox one first the only good game I see for it right now is Halo and for the PS4 there are more good game I see for it right now is kill zone shadow fall and Kingdom Hearts 3. I wood get the PS4 first.

    • Supermcawsomevill

      I did not know that PS Vita plays all digital PSP releases but its ok (for me at least) I don’t have the convenient of wireless internet. Plus on the PSP I don’t have extra room for all my games. Just for some of them.

      I meant, I don’t need extra room for all my games
