March 14, 2002. That's the day that Microsoft entered the console business in Europe, and it hasn't looked back since. 10 years on from that day, we look back on the 10 best games you could only buy on Microsoft's console.
The original Halo is still a mighty fine game today, but more importantly it made the Xbox a desirable console. Microsoft didn't have a history of titles to call on with its first console, so plucked some of the most promising titles and made them exclusive to its hardware. Halo has gone on to become one of the biggest gaming brands in the world. The original game is available to buy from Xbox LIVE Marketplace priced 1200 Microsoft Points. Alternatively, you could play the graphically spruced up Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary for Xbox 360.
