The Xbox. The Xbox 360. Xbox One. And now, Xbox Series X (and S, why not). Xbox Infinity feels inevitable.
Rather than fight a losing battle against the depressing modern gaming landscape, we’re here to acknowledge and examine the consoles that Microsoft produces. Sure, the Xbox lineup consists of soulless husks intended to deliver product and make billions of dollars, but the platforms and their games have also been embraced by hundreds of millions worldwide. Surely that means something? Maybe?
Microsoft perfected online console gaming in the early 2000s. Today, they’re still the best online gaming platform. Nintendo and Sony can’t compare.
Strangely, they’re also the only one of the big three console manufacturers to champion backwards compatibility and bring gaming into its inevitable future of streaming with Xbox Games Pass. Perhaps we’ve misjudged them?
At any rate, Xbox exists, and we are here to cover it. Don’t believe us? Feast your eyes… on this!
