19 weird facts about Xbox history we just learned

July 3, 2015   ·   0 Comments

It’s hard enough to get games developers to open up sometimes, so the idea of getting console executives to talk freely about their time in charge seems like a pipedream. Somehow, it’s happened.

Podcast Unlocked assembled three generations of Xbox executives – original Xbox creator, Seamus Blackley, Xbox 360 lynchpin, Peter Moore and current Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer – and got them to talk about their time running the company. And boy do they talk.

I’ve put together a list of the most interesting little tidbits to come out of the conversation above, but if you have any interest in the history of Xbox, or console development in general, listen to the whole thing – it’s absolutely fascinating, with all three happy to talk about their successes and failures in equal measure.

Apart from anything else, it’s an illicit little thrill to hear men we’re used to seeing spout corporate mush-speak from our computer screens start swearing – like stumbling onto Winnie the Pooh telling Piglet to f**k off.
