Target Admits to Shipping “a Small Amount” of Xbox Ones Early

Target admits to Xbox One shipping snafu.

According to Kotaku, retail giant Target has confirmed sending a “small amount” of Xbox Ones early. 

This comes on the heels of someone trying to sell one on eBay for nearly $10,000, and MoonlightSwami flooding Twitter with previously undisclosed information regarding the new system.

A Target spokesperson told Kotaku that a slight system error resulted in some Xbox Ones being sent out early – though the vast majority will remain safe until November 22. 

Another source told Kotaku that the snafu took place because some foolish clerk neglected to ascribe a release date for the non-Day One editions of the console. So the automated shipping systems sent them out as soon as they were delivered to the warehouses. Kotaku says a Target rep has yet to confirm that claim – though it would make perfect sense if that is how it all went down.

Do you think the recent flood of information will end up helping Microsoft come Xbox One launch day? Sound off in the comments down below and maybe I’ll give you a professional recommendation to work at target and fix that place up!
