Hey, welcome! I’m thenew
this is my blog on Xbox that you are reading.
I discovered the original Xbox at my friend’s house, playing Halo CE. It was the perfect continuation of GoldenEye 007 and Perfect Dark. Then came Star Wars : Knights of the Old Republic, Halo 2, Conker : Live & Reloaded, Splinter Cell, etc.
But it was with the release of the Xbox 360 that I joined online communities, French forums like xboxlive.fr and xbox-mag.net. I remember the ARG ourcolony for the launch of the console, the reveal of its design.
I bought the console day one, in France. And it died three times, replaced under warranty, always with no cost and fairly fast.
I joined a fan website, called xenon-360, writing news and tests, learning PHP development, doing some designs and wallpapers, editing videos.
Xbox was aiming at blogs, fan sites, first influencers back then so I was invited to some presentations when I moved to Paris (Forza, Brink, From Dust, Gears of War).
It was formative years. I still have the archives online.
Then arrived the Kinect years and I stopped participating and followed less and less the news.
For the Xbox One, I was curiously looking at the launch campaign: it was a mess, but I’ll write my opinion about it one day.
I got a secondhand console a few months after the release just because this salaryman, who received it as a business gift (haha), offered me a great deal.
The console is still running and that’s mainly why I’m not buying a Series for now.
A little hyped, against my will, by the new generation launch, I built this place, doxbox.live, to scribble my thoughts, revisit Xbox history and have some fun.
