The Making Of: Xbox

Edge:Seamus Blackley was the man who wrote a memo to Microsoft’s top executives suggesting that the company should get into the console business using proven PC components. The Xbox simply would not exist without him, and here, he tells the story of that pivotal first proposal, and what happened next. (Culture, Seamus Blackley, Xbox)

Xbox changed the way of console gaming in good ways

Yup...XboxLive was revolutionary, changed gaming and what we expect from consoles.

It did. It really set the precedent in the online arena and showed the PC crowd that games consoles can do online play and do it very well.

Lets hope MS take the Nextbox back to its core roots. If they do, we are in for a real treat.

Yea it definently did change things. Changed it so people have to pay money to play games online. Something that should be free... like on pc. Or ps3 for that matter.

Kinda lame when u gotta be an xbox live member just to get on netflix. lol.

I have a 360, but it just sits collecting dust because as much as I would love to do online play, its not worth it when i have other alternatives to do online play for free. Pretty much this means that im done with xbox for the forseeable future unless something is announced that blows my mind in tonights reveal.

The pay for online thing is a deal breaker for me.
