The Xbox Arrives in My Collection

The other day I was very happy to see that my new Xbox arrived, and no I don’t mean the Xbox 360. I mean the original, the first, the big black box that introduced us to Halo. So of course I was excited to see it arrive after costing me some $72, and that was with Halo included.

I remember sitting in Band class listening to everyone talking about the Xbox and how it would blow all the others out of the water. Even I was surprised to see Microsoft enter the console market, but it sort of made sense to me. The only problem was there was no way my parents were going to buy me an Xbox after already getting me a GameCube and a PlayStation 2. Yeah, I was sort of a spoiled rich kid back then, but that was then. Not that I don’t have money now, I just don’t have as much.

It wasn’t until a kid named Justice came to stay with us one summer that I actually got to see and play an Xbox personally. I loved it, and couldn’t get enough of it. That was a great summer, and I still remember it to this day. Of course a lot of crap happened that summer also, but that’s a whole different story. Pretty much it includes a couch, beach patrol, running, and a whole lot of other teenage stuff. Typical 17 year old teen antics, I miss those days.

Years later I finally have an Xbox of my own, and let me tell you right now, I fucking love it! I couldn’t be happier, and to think this is the 8th console I’ve bought this year. Thought it wasn’t the last, on Thursday I bought the Sega Saturn. Another console I didn’t own when it was new, but that’s for later.
