20 years ago, Bill Gates announced the original Xbox

If you go back in time 20 years on this exact day, you’d be witnessing the reveal of the original Xbox. On the 10th of March 2000, Bill Gates and Seamus Blackley were on stage at GDC to talk about the Microsoft gaming console.

It was the beginning of twenty years of Xbox, with Microsoft steaming ahead to fully reveal their next generation console, the Xbox Series X, which is coming out later this year. Interested in the presentation of the original Xbox? The full presentation is available on YouTube.
