Isn’t it pleasant when all people receives alongside? In the spirit of things, the formal Xbox Twitter account shared an image nowadays in celebration of the OG Xbox’s 20th birthday, which brings Nintendo, PlayStation, and even SEGA in on the exciting.
“Just one of gaming’s greatest eras” indeed.
The Dreamcast came out in 1998 in Japan, and 1999 in the rest of the environment (besides India, who would get it at the end of the calendar year 2000), making it just about to switch 23 — the eldest of the gang.
The PS2 was up coming in early 2000, building it 21 this yr (outdated more than enough to drink in the US, but you should do not pour whisky into your consoles).
Then, of study course, it was the GameCube’s launch in 2001 — we celebrated its 20th birthday in September this 12 months!
Eventually, the newborn of the team, the authentic Xbox, came out this 7 days in 2001. It was its birthday on Monday 15th November! Happy birthday, Xbox. Welcome to the club of consoles in their 20s. To celebrate the significant 2-, the Xbox workforce have been asserting all sorts of matters — but you are going to have to go to PureXbox.com for that!
PlayStation furthermore made available their congratulations to their previous rivals on their big working day, but with a tiny much more understatement. Nonetheless, it’s sweet, no?
(Sadly, the Wii, which turns 15 on Friday, was not invited to the social gathering.)
