Here’s How the Xbox One Looks When it Fails to Launch a Game

Demo consoles are subject to a lot of stress and wear and tear, and they normally run unfinished and unpolished code, so it’s definitely normal for them to fail to operate correctly, once in a while.

Today twitter user F. Van Derken Derren tweeted a picture showing exactly that: the display on an Xbox One demo console after failing to launch Forza Motorsport 5. From the look of the demo station it seems to be one of the units available at Best Buy in Canada.

You can find it below for the posterity, as there’s little doubt (or at least we hope) that not many will get to see this kind of screen when the console will be in our living rooms.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
