Hello listeners. It’s Brett Molina. Welcome back to Talking Tech. This month marks a major milestone for Microsoft and its Xbox video game console. Twenty years ago, this month, Microsoft launched the original Xbox. You may remember 2001 during the consumer electronics show, both Bill Gates and The Rock, when The Rock had hair and Bill Gates was still CEO of Microsoft, jumped on the stage and introduced the Xbox to everyone. For Microsoft, it felt like a pretty big leap back then. There were already a lot of different rivals between Sony and Nintendo, and then Sega had just said goodbye to console manufacturing. Now they came in and it’s that upstart. People weren’t sure what to expect but obviously we’re here 20 years later, they’re still going strong, and we’ve seen a lot of great games and a lot of great experiences with Xbox.
