Some infos about the console :

Introduction: The original Xbox console was the first gaming console developed and produced by Microsoft. It marked the company's entry into the video game console market and was released on November 15, 2001, in North America.

Development: The development of the Xbox began in 1998 under the leadership of a small team at Microsoft, codenamed "Project Midway." The team was headed by Microsoft's DirectX co-creator, Seamus Blackley, and the console was built with the intention of creating a powerful gaming platform to compete with Sony's PlayStation 2 and Nintendo's GameCube.

Hardware: It was powered by a custom 733 MHz Intel Pentium III processor, had an NVIDIA GeForce 3-based graphics card, and included 64 MB of RAM. The console also came with an internal hard drive, which was a significant advantage over its competitors.

Controller: The original Xbox controller, known as the "Duke" due to its bulky size, received mixed reviews. Microsoft later released a smaller and more ergonomic controller known as the "Controller S," which became the standard controller for the console.

Online Gaming: One of the groundbreaking features of the Xbox was its built-in Ethernet port, which allowed gamers to connect to the internet and play online multiplayer games through the Xbox Live service. Xbox Live set the foundation for future online gaming experiences on consoles.

Launch Titles: The Xbox launched with an impressive lineup of games, including "Halo: Combat Evolved," developed by Bungie. "Halo" became the console's flagship title and played a crucial role in establishing the Xbox as a serious contender in the gaming market.

Sales and Market Impact: Despite being the newcomer in the market, the Xbox achieved reasonable success. It sold over 24 million units worldwide during its lifespan, helping Microsoft gain a significant foothold in the gaming industry.

Legacy: The original Xbox left a lasting impact on the gaming landscape, setting the stage for future generations of Xbox consoles. It also introduced Microsoft as a major player in the gaming industry and paved the way for the Xbox brand's continued success.

Discontinuation: The production of the original Xbox was discontinued in 2006, making way for its successor, the Xbox 360.

The first Xbox console remains a significant milestone in gaming history, showcasing Microsoft's commitment to the gaming industry and laying the foundation for the subsequent evolution of the Xbox brand.
