Xbox turns 20: many virtual initiatives are on the way!

Through a press release, the Xbox division has unveiled some of the virtual initiatives coming to celebrate the company’s 20 years: let’s find out together what Microsoft has in store for us

Xbox is currently competing, on a still not very thriving market of consoles, with its new new generation machines, Series X and Series S, against a very strong Sony PlayStation 5 which, for its part, has a great harmony from the fans. The Redmond house, on the other hand, manages to show off an Xbox Game Pass that is more than rich and attractive, betting everything it can on servicesrather than on the machine itself. Of course, the recent acquisition of Zenimax (Bethesda group) suggests that Microsoft has largely understood the importance of having a proprietary stock. The fact is that the two companies continue to have, as always in the course of videogame history, completely different market visions.

This year is also very important for Xbox under another front, the purely historical and commemorative one. In fact, November will have passed exactly twenty years after the release of the first Xbox branded console. A period in which Nintendo dominated the market with its Game Cube and Sony with a formidable PlayStation 2, perhaps one of the best consoles ever conceived. To celebrate 20 years, the Xbox division has launched a series of virtual initiatives around the world. And with a trailer, of course, that we leave you below.

Xbox turns 20 and kicks off the celebrations!

Celebrations started with a live on the Xbox Twitch channel aired in recent days, all dedicated to the game from which the entire Xbox system started, Halo: Combat Evolved, now also available in the Halo: Master Chief Collection. A moment of joy and celebration that the company wishes to share with all fans, who will be able to participate in the “virtual” party by posting the most beautiful memories and stories that link them to Xbox on their social media using the hashtag # Xbox20.

So begins the slew of Xbox-branded initiatives that will end in November 2021 for the celebrations for the company’s 20 years. What are your best memories with the Xbox brand?
