15 years of goodness! Xbox Live: the online service that lead the way for online gaming on consoles.

Salute to thee and for J Allard for making the right moves to make Live what it is today.

Dreamcast demands a large share of that credit >8(

No, it doesn't.
I LOVED my DreamCast, but playing online on Xbox Live was so much better. You can't compare it.

Well yeah it was on a 33k modem in the UK. Still, Dreamcast pioneered console online gaming. It is how I cut my teeth on it so I'll always remember it fondly. Quake 3 and Phantasy Star Online set me on the path to MMORPGs and proper quake 3 :)

well the phillips CD-I was one of the first game consoles to ever have online functionality like web browsing and online gaming etc, so if we are gonna go that far back let’s go all the way

Lol i have no idea what you could do with a Phillips CD-I. Sounds awesome.

For me MS picked up the baton from the DC, and are still running with it now.

I remember trying to play Madden on Dreamcast over a 56k modem line and I instantly declared that online gaming was shit and had no future.

This is why I don't run with the top dogs of the world.

My favorite Xbox Live moment was probably playing Lost Planet on Xbox live for the first time

I fondly remember being engrossed in Halo 2, Gears of War, Call of Duty 2 and Rainbow Six Las Vegas. The early years were great on Xbox Live.

The Live team changed online gaming on consoles.

It’d be great if Microsoft had another anniversary event for Xbox Live like they did when it turned 5 years old and 10 years old.

Happy Birthday Xbox Live.

Gaming was forever changed with your inception.

To the next 15 years
