Latest Xbox One users complain of 'bricked console' hours after launch
Washington: Hours after the launch of Microsoft's latest gaming console Xbox One, users have reportedly complained of technical problems that prevented them from using the device altogether.
Some users reported technical problems, which made their machines ' bricked', after downloading a day one update.
The angry users took to social networks, while some complained directly to Microsoft or posted screenshots and videos of the issues they have had.
According to Sky News, the brand new gaming console with kinect motions sensors had been on sale in the UK for 429 pounds for a few hours when the first complaints emerged.
Some users even reported facing an E100 error message , which does not seem to have an easy fix as Microsoft's Xbox troubleshooting site suggests that the only way to remedy this error is to send the console back to the company for repair.
Rival Sony has faced similar complaints of 'bricking' with early release PS4s, although Reddit users found a fix for the problem, the report added.
