Welcome to my Microsoft collection.
This page is a repository for all of the Microsoft systems, peripherals, and accessories in my collection – it’s currently a work-in-progress, and I’ll continue to add things as and when I have the time.

The Xbox is a home video game console manufactured by Microsoft, and was their first foray into the gaming console market. It is classified as a sixth-generation console, competing with Sony’s PlayStation 2 and Nintendo’s GameCube. It was also the first major console produced by an American company since the release of the Atari Jaguar in 1993. Whereas most games consoles to that point were built from custom hardware components, the Xbox was built around standard PC components, using a modified version of the Windows 2000 OS, and featuring a 733 MHz Intel Pentium III CPU, a 233 MHz Nvidia GeForce 3-based NV2A GPU, a built-in HDD, and integrated Ethernet, making the Xbox technically more powerful compared to its rivals.
