Introduction

Microsoft... yes that large company based in the USA run by William Gates... Consoles, the classic things made by Nintendo and Sega... Microsoft and Consoles mix them together and what do you get -well you get the XBOX. The console was first launched back on the 15th November in New York City by Bill Gates. Since then there has been a lot of hype.

The Box for this new Games console.


In the last year we have seen some major changes in the way that consoles are on the market. Sony with the highly successful Playstation console has been leading the way with the Playstation 2. The other developments or changes include Sega deciding to pull out of the Console market and solely work on the games development side of things. We also heard the announcement that Microsoft will release the XBox - as usual with computer systems / consoles this has been brought forward with a lot of bad press, rumour mills and system changes before even Microsoft knew what they were doing.

A Lot of people have said that there is no need to get an XBox as it is "just" a computer. So after reading all these rumours was the XBox likely to be a hit - well we wanted to get one from the moment we heard about it, luckily due to the site size and affiliations which we have in place we managed to get hold of a unit prior to launch.
