How far back do you go?
Believe it or not, this November marks Xbox’s 22nd year in existence! The original console was first released all the way back on November 15th, 2001, and it’s definitely been a storied history over the past couple of decades since then.
Of course, the successful Xbox era was followed up by the even more successful Xbox 360 era (RRoD aside), and then things went sour with the launch of the Xbox One. Phil Spencer ended up taking the hotseat shortly later, and aside from a couple of bumps along the way, the brand has been going from strength-to-strength ever since.
The question is, where did you come in? We know that we’ve got Pure Xbox members who were there on day one of the original Xbox’s launch, and we also know that we’ve got brand-new Xbox owners joining us for the very first time!
Whatever the case, we want to know your earliest Xbox memories. Do you remember all the buzz leading up to that original console’s arrival? What were the first Xbox games you played? Have you just bought an Xbox Series X|S and want to tell us about your experiences so far?! We’d love to hear your stories down in the comments below.
Also, if you haven’t watched the fantastic “My Retro Life” video above, we highly recommend it!
