It’s one of the biggest gaming firms in the world, and now, believe it or not, Xbox is celebrating its 19th anniversary.
The original Xbox was released in North America on November 15, 2001, before going on sale in the UK a year later.
Microsoft CEO, Bill Gates, teamed up with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to unveil the original Xbox at the Consumer Electronics Show.
The unusual pair played a few rounds of Dead or Alive 3, before Gates handed over the world’s first ever Xbox to customer Edward Glucksman.
To celebrate the anniversary, Xbox has shared a hilarious throwback photo of Gates and The Rock on Twitter.
It tweeted: “Happy 19th birthday to the original Xbox and this legendary moment.”
In the 19 years since the first Xbox launched, Microsoft has gone on to launch four consoles – the Xbox 360, Xbox One, and most recently the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X.
Pre-orders for the next-gen consoles were made available back in September from major chains like Amazon, Currys, Argos and Microsoft.
Shoppers flocked to secure pre-orders as they went live, but there have been reports some retailers are already warning shoppers their purchase might not arrive until Christmas.
If you haven’t pre-ordered and still want to pick one up during lockdown, we have listed all the places to buy online below.
