Xbox One early shipping due to a 'systems error'

Early arrivals of Xbox One pre-orders placed through retailer Target are due to a "systems error," Kotaku reports.

As noted in a statement from the retailer, the error affected "a small number of video game consoles," while the rest should arrive on the console's launch date of Nov. 22. According to an unnamed source speaking with Kotaku, the error was likely the result of the retailer not labeling the release date for the regular edition of the console. As a result, the system was shipped out automatically.

An Xbox One has already been posted and pulled from eBay, while a second early receiver took to Twitter to share his findings. The console was banned shortly after, though Microsoft's Major Nelson stated earlier that the ban will not be permanent.
