Xbox One users were treated to a very peculiar Xbox One error message that was never supposed to leave the walls of Microsoft, the publisher today confirmed.
A number of users took to Reddit to report the error, “Mock Error Title”. It reads as follows: “This would be some long description about the error. Read it and weep! You will find a My Little Pony episode called ‘Read it and Weep.’ Cloudchasers and Wonderbolts, you’ll never be forgotten.”
Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra headed over to Twitter to explain:
Fix will be in tonight, sorry about that. Test string that shouldn’t show up.

With test messages like this, who needs real ones?
