Xbox is the first gaming console developed by Microsoft. It appeared on the market in November of 2001 in order to compete with already settled giants such as PlayStation 2, Dreamcast by Sega and GameCube by Nintendo. Xbox was the first independent project of Microsoft's on the gaming consoles market after a joint project with SEGA Company to develop a version of the Windows CE operating system for the Dreamcast console. Anyhow, Microsoft have finished second in number of units sold leaving Sega and Nintendo behind, but still lost the first place to the PlayStation 2 by a large margin. The Microsoft was a huge Company by that time and it was dominating various IT sectors. It helped the Company to enter the gaming consoles market easily and even push the existing players to the side. Later the battle on the game consoles market continued with next generation of Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
Initially, Xbox was named DirectXbox in order to emphasize the use of DirectX API in the console. When it was first announced, the Company which purchased the rights to sell the console didn’t like the name. With Internet-based survey, which included 20 names variations the “Xbox” name was voted the most and it became the new name of the Microsoft Console. By the time it was released it had the first in gaming consoles built-in hard disk drive used to store games, saves files and other necessary content. So, there was no need to purchase additional external storage devices like on Amiga CD32, Sega CD and Saturn and other. Although it was possible to copy game progress to other Xbox devices with the help of removable 8Mb SSD cards.
On November 15 of 2002 Microsoft launched its first online gaming subscription service called Xbox Live. By purchasing the subscription plan users could download games directly to the internal hard drive. At first users were unfamiliar with such a service and after the launch only 250 thousand subscribers have signed up, however, after a while the number of subscribers have grown to 1 million in 2004 and reached milestone of 20 million by May 2009.
