Microsoft's Xbox first came out in 2001; the first American-manufactured gaming console since Atari died in 1996.
Halo, Microsoft's flagship game, was also launched in 2001; and Halo 2 in 2004. Halo is the best-selling Xbox video game, and was by far the most popular online game for several years.
The Xbox 360 was released as the successor of the original Xbox in 2005, and sold very well.
