Boston (TheNextXbox) – The Xbox and the Xbox 360 were both highly-successful consoles. One thing that is clear though is that a console is only successful as the games that it has on it. Ask any Nintendo gamer out there and they will tell you this first-hand, it is all about the games and the first-party as well as third-party support that goes along with the console. The Xbox brand itself has had many successful franchises tied to it, but some of them have gotten lost in the shuffle in a sense.
