Here’s everything you missed from the Xbox 20th anniversary stream
It’s been 20 years since the Xbox was launched in North America. The original Xbox console featured a giant controller, crazy ideas about network connections and internal harddrives. Microsoft held an anniversary stream to celebrate those 20 years, with some new announcements and updates about their games.
- Robbie Bach, a former Xbox executive who retired ten year ago, speaks candidly about the Xbox, saying that it began as a business venture, and even casually mentioning the lack of faith within Microsoft.
- A trailer for Power On: The Story of Xbox, a six-part documentary entitled Power On is available. It will be available on several streaming services starting December 13. For a complete story on the creation of the Xbox console, documentarians collaborated with Xbox. This includes at least the story of The Red Ring.
- Phil Spencer is wearing a Infinite T-shirt. PHIL, that game is already ANNOUNCED. JEEZ.
- More than 70 games that are backward compatible with Xbox will be available, including the whole Max Payne and Fear series. Frame boosts and Auto HDR will be available for all original Xbox games and 360 games.
- This was a strange advertisement for Netflix’s Red Notice movie. That is how I believe they got Dwayne to record a segment on a green screen. Payola!
- Paramount+ gets our first glimpse at the Halo live action series.
- Halo infinite talk culminating with a symphony performing Halo songs set to footage throughout series.
- This live instrumentation thing is common among video game publishers. I feel that they should dress them up as characters from the game.
- Halo multiplayer is available today in celebration of Halo ‘s 20th Anniversary. Download and begin playing right away.
- That’s it. Still, neat.
- Or 2. Or 2. Or 2.
