Play Nintendo/Sega/PlayStation games on the Xbox Series S and X with Retroarch

 

 

Saw this and had no idea it was possible, works on the Xbox one too. There's a one time cost of $20 to activate developer mode on the Xbox but once you have it you can download Retroarch for free and play Retro games. You can copy games to the inbuilt storage and load them from there or a flash drive, not sure if you can load a game directly from a disc in the models with a disc drive.

 

Works for a lot of consoles and you can download more cores to emulate other consoles. Seems to work well on the series S and for $299 it may be one of the best value for money systems to emulate games.

I actually watched that video and was damn impressed at how Wii emulation went down. 

If PlayStation 2 emulation hits Retroarch, I might grab a Series S just to use as a PS2 emulation box.

They're working on a core to emulate the PS2 right now. You can view progress here: https://www.libretro.com/index.php/category/playstation2/

You can download an unfinished WIP version of the core to try out yourself in Retroarch. Not sure if it works in the Xbox version but I imagine it should since its pretty similar to the windows version.
