WORLD'S FIRST XBOX
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first Xbox?

On November 15, 2001, the Xbox was released into the North America market to join the other gaming consoles that lined the shelves of electronic departments and stores all over the continent. The Xbox was Microsoft Corporation’s first chance at getting their feet wet in the gaming industry on something other than PCs. Of course, Microsoft was a conglomerate among the computer industry but had yet to conquer the gaming world. With the Xbox, Microsoft was well on its way.

The Xbox runs on an operating system that’s very comparable to Microsoft’s Windows 2000. The user can interact with the gaming system by using the Xbox Dashboard. This dashboard allows the user to play DVDs or CDs and can even burn a CD onto the Xbox’s hard drive. The dashboard keeps within the console’s color scheme of green and black and can be used if there is no movie or game in use at the time. In addition to the dashboard, the Xbox also featured Xbox Live, which would allow the user to play games online with friends by signing into their account using the Xbox dashboard. Although the console was released in 2001, it wasn’t until 2002 that Xbox Live was released, which required additional accessories to be purchased.

Shortly after Microsoft’s second masterpiece, Xbox 360, was released, the original Xbox was discontinued. The Microsoft Xbox was officially taken off the shelves late in 2006 although new games were being developed until August 2008.
