Microsoft About to celebrate its 20th anniversary Xbox At an alarming rate, the celebration will be November 15, And before the company planned, the Xbox website suddenly began to pay tribute to the Xbox 360 blade dashboard.
If you Go to the website now, You will see a reimagining of the old OG Xbox 360 dashboard to showcase various Xbox promotions in October, including Back 4 Blood, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl and Far Cry 6.
The design seems to be limited to the homepage of the site and was completed without fanfare or attention from the Xbox team, so it may be just a small tribute to many people’s favorite Xbox 360 console design features (after it was You’re welcome to take it from us during the new Xbox experience in 2008, RIP).
It remains to be seen what kind of celebrations Xbox will hold on the 20th anniversary of the brand’s founding and the 20th anniversary of the original game console, but you can rest assured that if there is no commemorative event of some kind, Microsoft will not see its past or announcements. Will we retrieve the blade somehow? When you switch between menus, does Xbox add that sweet “swish” noise to the UI? Probably not, but I am happy to recall it.
As for what we will get on the 20th anniversary, it is not certain. Will we see Xbox Mini? Maybe it’s an announcement about the upcoming fable game? Maybe more Xbox games are added to Xbox Game Pass? Nothing is certain. We at least know that the company is celebrating its 20th anniversary by releasing new controllers and headsets, but nothing else has been announced at the time of writing.
Look at this space-we may be surprised!
