Original Xbox Development Kit

An Xbox collector who goes by the GameboxUkv has acquired an original Xbox development kit that we’ve never seen before.

The rig is a proper 90’s PC with an Xbox logo plastered on it, and by all plans and purposes, it probably is. There’s even a “Powered by DirectX” motto concealed within the logo, alluding to the console’s origins as the ‘DirectXbox’.

According to the collector, the actual name for the kit is the ‘Alpha II Xbox Development Kit”. The machine is from 2000/2001 so it likely made a massive contribution to the original Xbox and its launch game lineup.

An Xbox wiki entry says the kit sells for anywhere between $500 and $10,000, so yeah, getting one of these wouldn’t be cheap. It has a very important role in Xbox history.
