The Xbox is a sixth generation era video game console produced by Microsoft Corporation. It is the predecessor to Microsoft's Xbox 360 console. The Xbox was Microsoft's first independent venture into the video game console arena, after having collaborated with Sega in porting Windows CE to the Sega Dreamcast console.
The Xbox features a PC-like architecture with an Intel Celeron CPU with 733Mhz and a NVidia GPU. It uses DVDs for game storage and a 10 GB hard disk for save games and downloads. It also has a 100 mbit Ethernet controller allowing it to be connected to the internet and Xbox Live. The four controller ports are based on USB 1.1 but are only compatible with the controllers.
