The original Xbox prototype was an “X”, literally!

The original Xbox was released exactly 15 years ago today, and to celebrate this, a couple of Microsoft employees are having fun on Twitter, talking about the console and revealing some interesting stuff from the past.

According to a tweet from Aaron Greenberg, the head of the Xbox Games marketing division, the original Xbox was an “X”, literally. As Greenberg has taken over the official Xbox Snapchat account for today, expect more to come.

This is pretty interesting to see that something like this was in the works at first, however, it’s just as great to see that this prototype never made it to regular consumers, because who would want a gigantic “X” in their living room?
