Happy Xbox20 y’all. Here’s my babies, warts and all (as in, I didn’t notice how dirty they were till I took this image lol)
I got the OG in Summer 2005 for my birthday. Got quite a bit of games with it too (IIRC, Halo CE, PGR 1 and 2, Sega GT/JSRF disc, and Amped 2.) It was a used console, but it still works great today, and I made sure to remove the clock capacitor. I remember always asking my dad if he could get me Xbox Live, but I never ended up getting it till the 360, so my OG Xbox life was entirely offline. Still had a great time with it though!
360 I got for Christmas 2007. Halo 3 was the main driving force for me to want one. My first games for it were, of course, Halo 3, and the Forza Motorsport 2/Ultimate Alliance combo pack. That is not my original 360 though… Thanks to good ol RROD, I went through 4 360s in 2 years. The 360 in the pic is a one my dad got me at Walmart in 2009, as he was sick of MS sending shitty refurbs back every RROD lol. Still works great, but it sounds like a swarm of bees when reading a disc, haha.)
The Xbox One I got for Christmas 2013. First game was Dead Rising 3. I overall have mixed feelings on the console, as I’m sure many do. I’m glad it did pave the way for Game Pass, Phil, rebuilding of First Parties, etc, however. I also stuck with it till Series X, so moving from core Xbone to Series X was a massive upgrade for me. This is probably in the worst condition of the 4 consoles. The power button doesn’t work (must use controller to power on/off, the disc drive no longer functions, nor does the sync button, and the USB drives seem to provide low power which often disconnected the hard drive.) Luckily, Series X is just a direct upgrade from the One family, so I have no reason to use this ever again unless I wanna play Kinect games
Series X was launch day, and I got Yakuza LAD. Game Pass also had me covered. I also just continued playing whatever was in my Xbox One backlog, but with better performance and stuff. I am looking forward to the future of Xbox, it’s looking much brighter than the Xbox One days, that’s for sure!
