TeamXbox was a gaming media web site dedicated to Microsoft's Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One platforms. While the majority of content was Xbox and Xbox 360 related, the site occasionally covered general technology and other video game news.

TeamXbox was founded in 2000 by Brent "Shockwave" Soboleski and Steve "Bart" Barton. In 2001, Sol Najimi, of MSXbox, agreed to merge the MSXbox forums with the TeamXbox news site creating one of the largest Xbox focused fan sites. Media conglomerate IGN Entertainment, Inc. purchased TeamXbox in 2003,[2] which in turn was purchased by News Corporation in 2005.

IGN stopped creating new content for TeamXbox and their other "portal" sites on August 17, 2012.[3] All existing content was kept up although the main URL redirected to the site's forum. The forum became the main site and continued to exist in a usable form until August 2013. After suffering a spam attack the site was no longer easily maintainable and was completely taken offline in November 2013.
