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.
