happy birthday and happy downward compatibility

Posted by

It seems like yesterday when Microsoft made the leap into the video game console market with the Xbox first generation. Or at least it seems to me that I still remember leaving one of the stores of a more-than-popular chain of game stores with the console and multiple titles and looking forward to coming home spend the whole weekend tied to the console enjoy my new console in a healthy way. It wasn’t the launch day, even for the first few weeks, but it didn’t take me long to take the plunge (because my sister-in-law also worked in this store at the time and was able to give me a good discount).

And today we have an anniversary, Xbox is 20 years old, according to Microsoft 19, according to Wikipedia 19, in a strange divergence in which, because those from Redmond need to know their data pretty well, we should give their version more credibility. so that the number is round, and today is the twentieth anniversary of the Microsoft console, generation after generation (albeit with some setbacks), has always developed betterwho manages to assert himself against the almighty Sony with his PlayStation.

Xbox’s present, including struggles to get hold of a next-generation console for the rest of the year, as well as a hypothetical future of resolutions and refresh rates unthinkable today, would not be possible without its past, without its 20 years and four generations (with developments in itself) that complete their curriculum to this day. And I know that may sound a bit clichéd, but the point is that Microsoft also values ​​this And so he looked back on his past for the 20th anniversary of his console.
