New clip explores the weird, trying origins of the original Xbox

The Did You Know Gaming crew is on a role, as its YouTube channel just put out a new video detailing the original Xbox and its evolution. It’s a veritable Behind the Music of backstory drama.

It’s crazy to think that the original Xbox hit retailers almost 15 years ago. What once was a costly endeavor to combat an encroaching Sony on the video game market became profitable in 2008. Leave it to Microsoft to enter a market that it had absolutely no stake in and take it by storm.
