The original Xbox was released on November 15, 2001, alongside Halo: Combat Evolved. It was followed by the Xbox 360 in 2005, the Xbox One in 2013, and the Xbox Series X with the Xbox Series S in 2020.

The Xbox Virtual Museum allows users to navigate the virtual space through an Internet browser and includes different areas dedicated to each Xbox console, Halo and Gears of War franchises.

Players can learn about significant events in the history of the Xbox, including the ups, downs and the crisis that erupted in 2007 and threatened the entire brand in the early stages of its second generation. According to Microsoft, the Xbox 360 hardware glitch known as the “Red Ring of Death” “Destroyed millions of consoles”, as a result of which the company spent more than $ 1 billion on repairing faulty systems and extending the warranty period from one to three years.

By signing in with their Microsoft account, users can visit an area that displays highlights from their Xbox journey, including the first time they signed in to Xbox Live, the number of games played, various Gamerscore achievements and stats, and their most played games.
