An Australian citizen, who allegedly was in possession of the Xbox One dev kit console well before its unveiling, back in December, is being tried in an Australian children’s court, Polygon reports.His chargesheet includes possession of identification material with intent to commit an offence, dishonestly obtaining or dealing in personal financial information, failing to obey a data access order, possession of a prohibited weapon, cannabis possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, possessing or copying an indecent or obscene article and possessing child exploitation material.

It’s a long list of alleged offences but the case has been adjourned till next month, and the defendant has not yet had a chance to plead either way. However, considering his history in the case- he supplied Kotaku with details on the Xbox One that all turned out to be completely accurate, at least as of then (mandatory Kinect, new controllers, multitasking, always online), it’s hard to see how this could end well for him. But we’ll see either way.

GamingBolt will have more for you on this as it develops.
