A Look Back at 10 Years of Xbox Live

Throughout the nineties and early 2000′s, a lot of video game companies tried to get console gamers to play online: there was the Xband peripheral for the SNES and Genesis that allowed you to play Mortal Kombat over a primitive dial-up modem, and Sega tried especially hard to get gamers connected on both the Saturn and the Dreamcast with Seganet. While the Dreamcast was arguably the tipping point where console gamers finally started to appreciate the possibilities of online multiplayer, it wasn’t until Microsoft launched Xbox Live that online gaming on a console finally became mainstream.
