Meet Dan Livingstone. Dan lives in New Zealand. Thanks to the ways of the world and time zones and whatnot he was the very first person to actually pay money for an Xbox One. He seems happy.
Sometimes it really sucks to be a gamer in this part of the world -- delays, cost, lag -- but occasionally we see a rare upside and that upside is during big global launches like the Xbox One when we get to play new consoles hours before the rest of the world. At time of posting the Xbox One has been available here for nine hours but there are places in the US where it is still unavailable.
This might make me a bit of a jerk, but I feel pretty happy about that.
