The 20th anniversary celebrations have officially begun! The Xbox brand is turning 20 years old on November 15, 2001 (as is the Halo franchise), and as a result, we thought we'd dip into some nostalgia to end the week.
It's been a long 20 years, and many of us weren't there at the beginning, but we're willing to bet that a good portion of Xbox fans have at least gazed eyes, if not played an original Xbox over the past 20 years. At the very least, you've probably flirted with some of the back catalogue as part of backwards compatibility on modern consoles.
Here are a couple of articles we put together a few months ago about the anniversary:
- Looking Back At The Original Xbox Launch On Its 19th Anniversary (November 2020)
- YouTuber Shares Home Video Footage Of The Original Xbox Launch (November 2020)
So, what's your first memory of the original Xbox? Were you there on day one, kicking things off with Halo: Combat Evolved all the way back at the turn of the millennium? Did you spend your weekends going round to your friend's house to play on theirs? Maybe you bought an original Xbox many years after the generation actually ended?
We're keen to hear your very first memories of the original Xbox down in the comments below!
