As an Atari 2600 kid, long-time Xbox (read Halo) fan, and a one-time gaming industry analyst, I've long been fascinated the stories behind the stories of the gaming platforms. So with the dawn of a new console generation upon us, I decided to catch up with Seamus Blackley, one of the original Xbox founding fathers and the guy who coined the term DirectX-Box (which later became Xbox).

Seamus and I talk about those early days of the Xbox, how he got into the video game industry, why he decided to become a "suit" and start the gaming division at mega-agency CAA, his new company Innovative Leisure and his thoughts about the new Xbox One.
