So the Xbox One went on sale at midnight night. Auckland may have pipped Australia to the post when it comes to the first sale, but it didn't have a giant Xbox One logo projected on the Sydney Harbour Bridge or a countdown clock on Sydney Tower. Whether this is a good thing might depend on your personal taste.
Reactions to the Xbox One have been mixed, but clearly Microsoft didn't want the launch to be a low-key affair. We're just not sure that shade of green is really Sydney's colour.
