Cortana: The message just repeats: Regret, Regret, Regret.
Commander Miranda Keyes: Catchy. Any idea what it means?
Sergeant Johnson: "Dear humanity. We regret being alien bastards. We regret coming to Earth. And we most definitely regret the Corps just blew up our raggedy-ass fleet!"

Gamer alert! October 18th, 1958 marks the debut of what is considered by many to be the first video game, "Tennis for Two" a simulated a game of tennis, using a Donner Model 30 analog computer and an oscilloscope for a display! Designed by American physicist William Higinbotham for display at the Brookhaven National Laboratory's annual public exhibition, this game was resurrected in 1972 by Atari as "Pong." Vintage gaming continued through Space Invaders, Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Doom, Dragon's Lair, to an explosion of games in the 90's and 00's with the console wars, the Xbox arriving with the launch of the first of the intensely popular Halo series. This Xbox tartan was designed for the 20th anniversary of the launch of the original Xbox in Scotland and the UK in 2001. A limited amount of tartan covered Xbox controllers were made for lucky fans in the signature green and black! 💚 🎮 💚
To be added.
This tartan was created in 2022 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the launch of the original Xbox in Scotland and the UK. It formed part of Xbox’s worldwide #Xbox20 celebration, acknowledging the role of the Scots and those of Scottish descent in the creation and success of the videogame console. It’s intended to celebrate the past, present and future of Xbox. The predominant black and green colouring recognise Xbox’s original brand colours, while the white and vivid green accents represent Xbox’s journey from the original console, to Xbox 360, to Xbox One, to the Xbox Series S & Xbox Series X, and onwards to the future of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Cloud Gaming. The tight sett represents the closeness Xbox enjoys with its vibrant community. A small number of commemorative Xbox controllers were created and wrapped with the Xbox Tartan, woven at Lochcarron of Scotland, and made available for Xbox fans to win.
