Microsoft has been putting all the attention on the original Xbox over the past week due to it celebrating its 20th anniversary, but both the Xbox One and Xbox 360 are also celebrating birthdays today, turning eight and sixteen respectively.
The Xbox 360 first launched all the way back on November 22nd, 2005, and it kicked off with a famous launch event called Zero Hour in which attendees travelled to a military hanger in the Mojave Desert. We covered this quite extensively in our Xbox 360 15th anniversary feature here at Pure Xbox last year, complete with photos.
The Xbox One, meanwhile, got off to an infamously rocky start on November 22nd, 2013, following a tumultuous pre-launch period in which initial suggestions about an always-connected console and an inability to play used games significantly damaged the brand from the get-go, and ultimately led to the departure of then-Xbox head Don Mattrick.
Both consoles, however, have given us some incredible games over the years, along with industry-defining features such as dashboards, Xbox Live parties, Xbox Game Pass, backwards compatibility and much, much more.
So, as we celebrate the anniversaries of Xbox 360 and Xbox One today, we want to know your favourite memories with both consoles. Was it playing Halo 3 multiplayer with friends? Seeing Ryse: Son of the Rome for the first time on Xbox One and marvelling at how incredible the visuals were? Everyone's got a story, so we want to know yours!
