The Xboxâ€™s 20th anniversary continues with a six-part documentary detailing the platformâ€™s history. Each chapter lasts around 40 minutes, resulting in an exhaustive 4-hour runtime.
Power On: The Story of Xbox is a behind-the-scenesÂ look that takes us from the Xboxâ€™s conception and Microsoftâ€™s attempt to acquire Nintendo in 2000, to the Red Ring of Death fiasco, the Xbox TV debacle, and more. Â Â
All six episodes are now available to watch for free on a variety of video platforms. If youâ€™re in the UK, YouTube and Microsoft TV & Movies are your best bet â€“ some of the links provided appear inaccessible in this country.
The series is available in 30 languages along with audio descriptions in English.
Microsoft has also released a range of posters in celebration of the documentary itself, including a Red Ring of Death premium print. Between this and the Xbox Fridge, they’re delightfully self-aware these days.
