The Xbox 360 Timeline:
Over the last 7 years Xbox has evolved into a remarkable video games console, one that will not be replaced anytime soon. Earliest predictions for the next generation Xbox console are for 2014! So lets take a look at the life that the Xbox 360 has led thus far:
♦ The Xbox 360 was unveiled on MTV on May 12 2005, and was then followed up by more details at the 2005 electronic entertainment expo or E3 in June. The console's official UK release date was November 22nd 2005. The console sold out before it had even been released and Microsoft had a difficult time keeping up with the huge demand, however within one month Microsoft had shipped 1.5 million units!
♦ Xbox 360 launched its first remodelled version, "Xbox 360 Elite" which included a massive 120GB hard drive and a smooth matte black finish. It also came with an elite controller and headset and fixed many of the problems that the first xbox 360 was experiencing e.g. The Red Rings of Death. This year also marked the release of the forever growing Halo, with Halo 3!
♦ Project Natal was unveiled at 2009 E3 which showed off an Xbox 360 accessory that could control the console without the use of a gamepad but instead with physical movements and voice commands, later becoming known as the Kinect. A Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Limited Edition console was also released that had a MW2 skinned console.
♦ The Kinect became the fastest selling consumer electronic device ever released with over a whopping 10 million Kinects sold. The Xbox 360 then received its second complete dashboard overhaul which promised to redefine the way the console was used. Gears of War 3 launched in September with a Limited Edition Gears of War Console, with console and controller skins. In November with the release of Call of Duty Modern Wafare 3 another Console deal was released. A Limited edition Call of Duty MW3 console.
♦ With the release of Gears of War Xbox sales were booming, and released ahead of its major competitors of Sony and Nintendo it was the only next generation console on the market, well until November when both PS3 and Nintendo Wii were released within 2 weeks of each other. Xbox Live then hit its 50 million downloads from the Marketplace landmark.
♦ In 2008 Microsoft unveiled their new Xbox experience which included a completely redesigned dashboard and was full of new features such a HD streaming for the US consumers access to their Netflix accounts, avatars and party mode. Then Came the rumours of "project Natal."
♦ Project Natal was officially named Kinect and Microsoft told the world that "You are the Controller". At the same time the Xbox 360 Slim was also announced which featured a 250GB hard drive and in built Wifi connectivity. In November the Kinect was released as well as 2 special Xbox 360 Kinect bundles that included either the Xbox 360 4GB console with Kinect sensor and Kinect adventures or the Xbox 360 250GB console with Kinect Sensor and Kinect Adventures
♦ A special edition family bundle was released with an ice white console, a white Kinect sensor, white controller, Xbox live membership and Family Kinect Games. Kinect Star Wars was also released and of course came with a limited edition R2D2 Console and C3P0 controller. That brings us up to present day, so who know what comes next!
