Problems arising for bedroom devs as Microsoft admits to faults

Develop Mode Could Kill Your Xbox One
When Microsoft decided it wanted to remember gamers for Xbox One - following the disastrous Mattrick launch plan of TV, music, movies and erm... those other things, ah yes, games - one of the points made about the new console was that it would double as a development box or all. Not so.

It seems that trying to make your Xbox One into a Dev Box (see the video below) is a very good way of turning your Xbox One in to a Box. Just a box. Microsoft made a statement.

"Changing the settings in this menu is only intended for developers for Xbox One, and this alone does not turn the console into a development kit. We strongly advise consumers against changing these settings as it could result in their Xbox One becoming unusable. Customers who have put their consoles into this developer setting can revert by restoring factory defaults under Settings / System, select Restore Factory Defaults," it told Endgadget.
