It is not usually that we discuss Prince Harry and Xbox in the identical sentence, however right here we’re! The British royal printed his memoir (known as “Spare”) this week and is making some headlines within the UK for a remark about getting an Xbox within the late ’90s.

As reported by the Every day Star (amongst others), Harry mentions within the guide {that a} story about it has appeared “in lots of accounts of my life, as gospel,” however he has no concept if it is true. This is how he describes it:

“Days after I obtained again I had a birthday. September 15, 1997. I turned 13…”

“… I tore off the wrapping paper, the ribbon. I regarded inside. “Mommy purchased it for you. A short while in the past…” It was an Xbox. I used to be blissful. I appreciated video video games.”

In spite of everything, that may’t be true, as the unique Xbox wasn’t launched till November 2001, with the European launch not truly occurring till March 2002. Perhaps it was a PlayStation prototype and Harry obtained confused?

Anyway, it feels like Harry had an Xbox in some unspecified time in the future throughout his teenage years, so perhaps we have been taking part in Halo 2 on Xbox Reside with rights in precept? It would even have an Xbox Collection X or S…
