William Derrick pre-ordered his XBOX and it arrives at his doorstep 12 days before it's original release date.

EL PASO, Texas -

An El Paso teenager ordered a new Xbox One, and to his surprise, it came early. But his initial luck soon turned sour.

"Well we ordered an Xbox One on Wednesday," said William Derrick. "It was shipped to our door on Friday, I was pretty exited."

Derrick cranked up his new toy but soon found a problem. "I hooked it up and now I'm banned from Xbox live on that console," Derrick told us.

Xbox One is expected to be released on Nov. 22nd. If you're not familiar, many game consoles now work through an online system. Once Derrick logged on with the new Xbox, Microsoft shut him down. Derrick was told by the manufacturer to return the console and place an order for a new one.

"I think it's kind of a hassle but I'm okay with it. I don't think it's that bad, I get a new system anyway," said Derrick.

And even though his excitement was short lived, Derrick seemed to be a good sport about the whole situation.

"I think it's kind of cool though that I got it early just because well...I'm thirteen and I like getting things early," said Derrick.

Derrick ordered the Xbox One at Target. Once management found out about the mix-up they gave him a $100 gift card.
