Xbox is Celebrating Its History with an Alumni Roundtable

Posted on November 22, 2021 by Paul Thurrott in Xbox with 5 Comments

A terrific group of Xbox alumni will appear live today at 10 am PT/1 pm ET to discuss the past, present, and future of the gaming platform.

The discussion will be hosted by the Microsoft Alumni Network on YouTube. Dubbed “Xbox Pioneers: Creativity & Innovation — Past, Present, and Future,” the roundtable will be moderated by former Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aimé and it will feature Xbox alumni Robbie Bach, Ed Fries, Peter Moore, and Bonnie Ross.

“As we commemorate the 20th anniversary of Xbox, the panelists look back at how they used their creativity and innovation to push traditional boundaries of gaming and establish Xbox as a dominant player in the industry,” a Microsoft representative told me. “These industry trailblazers share their personal stories and experiences — reminiscing on the past and looking forward to what the future holds.”

This sounds like something you won’t want to miss if you’re an Xbox fan. Check-in here to catch it live or rewatch it later.

    Would have liked to see Seamus Blackley on the panel as well but certainly looking forward to this.

      Seamus was on Podcast Unlocked for the 20th anniversary and it was a great conversation. I recommend checking it out if you haven't already.

        Good to know, thanks! I will definitely check that out. I really enjoyed the episode a few years back that had Phil, Peter, and Seamus. I think it was after Phil Spencer's first E3 as head of Xbox.

    I would have watched this anyway, but since Reggie is awesome and such an unusual choice for a moderator, there is no way I am missing this.

    So where was Don Mattrick? Maybe a submarine?
