November 15, 2001, Microsoft entered the videogame console market with a console known as the Xbox. Since that time, the Xbox platform has gone on to become a tremendous success. The same can be said for the Xbox Live online service. Videogame Daily News would like to send out a "Happy Anniversary" to the Xbox platform!
The original Xbox provided the momentum needed for the Xbox 360 to become the dominant console platform in the world of high-definition gaming. Xbox Live has gone on to become the most successful online service ever seen in the world of videogames -- one full generation ahead of anything else offered by any other manufacturer. And the Kinect accessory is even in the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest-selling electronic product in history -- selling over eight-million units within 60 days!
