Since its debut in 2001, the Xbox brand has consistently inspired, innovated and redefined entertainment in the living room. Xbox has led the way with industry firsts such as introducing first-person shooters to the console generation with Halo; setting the standard of online gaming over Xbox LIVE; or more recently transforming the way people interact with technology through the magic of Kinect. With record-breaking sales figures recorded last month, the future has never looked brighter for the Xbox brand.
So as a Christmas treat to all Xbox owners, we’re looking back at the key products, milestones and partnerships that have catapulted Xbox 360 into the living rooms of 57 million families around the world. To celebrate the success of the platform, Xbox has created an interactive timeline of the platform’s ten year history, commemorating the original console launch in 2001, through to the incredible software and service updates available on Xbox LIVE, the recent entertainment revolution with Kinect as well as the host of live TV, music, movie and social media partners who are helping us change the way people enjoy entertainment in their homes.
The timeline, which goes live today and will live on Xbox.com, catalogues all the major milestones in Xbox history and takes you on your own personal journey from your first Xbox experience through the hardware, software and entertainment launches that you remember – and even some that you may not!
So jump in and join us on a rollercoaster ride of Xbox’s greatest hits. It’s already been a journey to remember, and it’s only just begun.
