As I said earlier today, today marks fifteen years since the release of the original Xbox, but that means that today is also the anniversary of the release of the first MUST-have launch title for the Xbox, Halo

To celebrate the release of Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo‘s new developers at 343 Industries hosted a two hour Halo 5: Guardians live stream.  If you happened to miss it, we’ve got the archived version of it below. Please enjoy!

Happy Fifteenth Birthday, Xbox November 15, 2016

Today marks the fifteenth anniversary of the release of the original Xbox!

So much has changed in the past fifteen years but Microsoft’s devotion to offering great exclusive games has not been changed a bit. In the past fifteen years, three succesful consoles have been released and it has been a perminant home to the legendary Halo franchise.
I think my favorite memories from the console can be directly tied into several Halo game releases.  The first major game release night I ever attended was for Halo 2, and it was nice to finally see I wasn’t the only gamer where I lived.  Since then I’ve made sure to pick up every single Halo game at launch, because not only have they been consistently great but because I feel such a close personal connection to that property because of all my experiences playing it.

So how are you planning to spend today?  The team at 343 Industries is planning to play games of Halo 5: Guardians throughout the day!  For me, I think I’m going to get back into playing Halo: The Master Chief Collection.  Post a comment with your thoughts on the Xbox’s birthday and celebrate fifteen years of Xbox!
