Xbox Titles

These simple lists allow access to the currently collected information about the 1,000+ games released for the Xbox between 2001 and 2008. The “All Titles” list includes collected items (such as Dead or Alive and Dead or Alive 2 being part of Dead or Alive Ultimate, or all the coin-ops included in Midway Aercade Treasures). “Standard Titles” includes just the master titles while “Collection Titles” includes only games that are collected or accessible through a master release.

All Titles (1238) | Standard Titles (1010) | Collection Titles (231)

Catalog Flyer 1 (2001)

I found a copy of this catalog with launch title Project Gotham Racing and I believe it was the first game catalog flyer Microsoft produced for the console. The gallery includes 300dpi edits of each page which are also compiled into the .CBZ file. These same files were collected into the Adobe Acrobat .PDF file. Finally, the full 600dpi .PSD dual-page scan edits are available in the .ZIP archive.

Catalog Flyer 2 (2002)

I found a copy of this catalog with the first Xbox Exhibition disc, the first of seven Microsoft-produced demo and video compilations. I believe it was the second game catalog flyer Microsoft produced for the console. The gallery includes 300dpi edits of each page which are also compiled into the .CBZ file. These same files were collected into the Adobe Acrobat .PDF file. Finally, the full 600dpi .PSD dual-page scan edits are available in the .ZIP archive.

Catalog Flyer 3 (2003)

I found a copy of this catalog with launch title Fuzion Frenzy but it was obviously a later edition. I believe it was the third game catalog flyer Microsoft produced for the console. The gallery includes 300dpi edits of each page which are also compiled into the .CBZ file. These same files were collected into the Adobe Acrobat .PDF file. Finally, the full 600dpi .PSD dual-page scan edits are available in the .ZIP archive.
