Yesterday, Microsoft’s first console, the Xbox, celebrated its 10th anniversary.

The Xbox was first released in America on November 15th, and popularised a number of things for gaming. A solid online infrastructure, a hard drive, oh and FPS Halo also changed the console landscape.

The Xbox was a console that stumbled a bit, although it was also one that helped shape today’s industry, and Microsoft would later go on to better themselves with the launch of the Xbox 360.
