by Amy White exclusive
What was it like naming the first Xbox after working on it in secret?
What does the team that made the first Xbox folks think of the upcoming console being named Xbox One?
We sat down with CoCreator Kevin Bachus to find out. It turns out that the Microsoft Xbox was almost the Microsoft 11X; Kevin tells us how it almost happened, and how it didn't.
We sat down with Kevin Bachus to talk about the Next Big Game Search over at Dave and Buster's, but couldn't resist talking a bit about the state of the game industry, next gen, and of course, names.
And boy, are we glad we asked!
Kevin's got a bunch of great stories to tell: what it was like listening to Bill Gates announce their super-sercret Xbox project, how the team reacted to the latest Xbox name, and many more.
