Microsoft set up a dedicated hub for Xbox Live members to share their experiences using the service, the company announced today on Xbox Wire.

The company is asking for users to share videos detailing their memories and stories of using Xbox Live, similar to the Xbox Anthem video shown during the Xbox One unveiling on May 21. The video featured appearances by members of the original Xbox team — including Bill Gates, Robbie Bach and J. Allard — as well as Steven Spielberg, who will produce the upcoming live-action Halo television series. Members from Forza developer Turn 10 Studios and Halo's 343 Industries also shared their experience with Xbox Live, alongside Crytek founder Cevat Yerli and Remedy Entertainment's Matias Myllyrinne.

Xbox gamers were also featured prominently in the video, such as Eric Neustadter, who received the first gamertag on Xbox Live, members of entertainment company Rooster Teeth, and numerous couples, parents and children who have strengthened their relationships through gaming.

"We love these stories so much we were inspired to build a site to showcase them," wrote Xbox Wire editor Lisa Gurry. "And to ask you to share your story. Xbox has 48 million Xbox Live members with 48 million stories behind each one."
