Illustration for article titled So, What Was The Worlds Very First Gamertag?

While there are millions and millions (and millions!) of gamertags out there now, in the beginning, there was but one. The alpha, the creator, Xbox Live's Adam, before he lost a rib. So, who was it?

As part of a little Q&A about the new Xbox dashboard, Microsoft's Larry Hryb has disclosed that the very first gamertag in the world is "e", which belongs to Microsoft's Xbox Live operations manager Eric Neustadter.


It was created all the way back on August 13, 2002, meaning that later this week his will be the first gamertag in the world to turn 7.

Awww, they grow up so fast!
