When the console was announced, the "Xbox" wordmark was replaced with a glowing green "X" symbol. This logo is extremely rare and it only appeared on Bill Gates's black leather jacket, which he wore when the prototype of the console was revealed at the Game Developers Conference on March 10, 2000.[4] It also appeared on an interview with Bill Gates, where it can be seen on a monitor screen in the background.[5]

The 360 logo was used on a few games for the original Xbox near the end of its run such as the Burger King games, the demos that come with the magazine prior to the Xbox 360's release as well as the holograms on the discs and seals from 2005-2007. It went off at 2008 and was replaced by Xbox 360. However, the Xbox 360 was launched after the Xbox console had a new logo.
