Xbox’s “Power On” Documentary Receives Daytime Emmy

That’s another X in the…box

Xbox’s 20th-anniversary documentary, Power On: The Story of Xbox, has been awarded a Daytime Emmy.

The award in question was for the “Outstanding Single-Camera Editing”.

Power On features a large amount of Microsoft archive footage.

And the general public hasn’t seen a large portion of this footage.

During the anniversary stream, lead of programming for Xbox, Tina Summerford penned the question;

“…is there a compelling story behind the history of Xbox?

The answer, it turns out, was yes, absolutely. So we partnered with an Emmy award-winning documentary film team to really dig in and help bring the story to life.

At its core, it’s a story about how Xbox started as a passion project from a small group of gamers within Microsoft and grew to become a source of joy for Xbox players around the world”.

Though it may be the youngest of the Big Three consoles, Xbox has already had a great history. And its future is only looking brighter.
