Happy Birthday Xbox

Its ten years since the original Xbox (complete with stunning, if quickly banned commercial) went on sale - at a time when Sega, Sony and Nintendo dominated the console scene.

A whole decade and only one hardware refresh later and Microsoft's console dominates sales, with only Sony really competing. Sega are long gone and Nintendo need a new console quickly if its to avoid the same fate.

The only dark cloud on the horizon has to be Apple, who could decimate the console market by adding access to the iTunes app store and wireless controllers to its Apple TV.

Happy birthday Xbox, but watch your back!
