The Collection Piece by Piece – Xbox Turns 10: Xbox Launch Stuff

A very rare wallscroll used to promote Halo in Japan some months later.

And that’s me a full 10 years ago on senior trip just before the Xbox arrived. Boy does time fly.

I could not find a single one of my original “duke” Xbox controllers to take a picture of which is odd since I have at least 3 of them hiding somewhere around here.

I just remember being blown away by Halo, PGR being extremely fun and DoA having jaw dropping  graphics.

I did get my system at midnight on launch day with these games.

I had a PlayStation too, in fact, I bought that at midnight on launch day as well a year prior. Xbox appealed to me more than Playstation over time because Microsoft focused on online gaming more so than Sony did. It was built-in the box and I definitely saw what was coming.

The Collection Piece by Piece – Skylanders

I thought Skylanders was good fun. If you have a younger kid between 6 -14, he/she will want this game. Don’t forget to get them extra character packs, because they will want those as well and there’s quite a few to choose from.

Gamerscore wise: Not too difficult and should take roughly 12-15 hours to fully complete. I had fun even though I felt like a big dork buying it. You do not need extra characters to get the full thousand. The three that come in the box will get the job done.
