Generacionxbox: We have discovered a new Playstation One emulator in the Xbox store.
Just downloaded it and I can guarantee it will be pulled off as soon as ms figures it out because the app is hidden inside an app lol, basically its a pdf reader until u press a few buttons at the right time then it becomes an emulator So I suggest everyone who have an Xbox one to download it before its gone
The emulator is legal however the ROMS are not unless the XB1 can read PS1 CDs which from what I can gather it can. Somehow I think the people who install the PS1 emulator will be downloading the PS1 ROMs as well which as I said is illegal and because the XB1 runs the Windows 10 operating system Microsoft will know and as they have stated in their EULA they can provide this information to third parties on request. Somehow I doubt Sony will just let this slide. If you are going to run an emulator you would be a lot safer to run it on your PC where you can put on you green parrot and drink optional rum providing you make sure that the operating system does not phone home.
Guess I be reporting this to MS for PS1 emulator.
Don't be super lame
@KwietStorm Sorry pal but I am fun at parties.
@thexmanone Yeah, because him reporting it will get MS's attention a lot more than the giant article posted on N4G and probably all of the place now. What a joke.
You might be fun at parties but you're a rat.
I dont know if you are joking but if you're not then I can just say, dont be that guy.
What do you do at parties, call the police when people there are smoking pot?
You miserable person.
@Kun_ADR You do know I owned an Xbone/Xbox360(check my achievement) and you can check in my account for my Xbox username. I also Owned a Switch so I can't be a fanboy, if I owned and play in other Console.
The OG XBox games will be next.
But what it really needs is a PS4 emulator...
Playing Crash Bandicoot on Xbox One. Interesting.
If true M$ will pull it soon. They don't allow emulators in the app store.
They just created a format that allows such to happen.
You can download it and save the app on a hardrive. Then you can play the Xbox on offline mode while using the app.
Can't they disable the app whenever you go online? If so, seems like a lot of work for something that would be short lived. Unless one wants an expesive way to play PS1 games and decides to never take it online again.
This is gonna suck cause this will be kicked off so quick cause M$ new rules on the windows store when come to emulators
I'd like to see how long that's going to last! It didn't go so well with the Nintendo emulator. But it does seem kind of cheap putting a competing console emulator on your system!
Well did you really expect any thing different from these guys
Are there any emulators still on Xbox one? A bit strange when they allow emulators on the Windows Store but not for Xbox One. This one will probably get removed too anyways.
Emulators are not illegal but downloading the ROM's for those emulators are, unless the ROM itself has no copyright restrictions. If you are going to put a green parrot on your shoulder and optionally drink rum while singing sea shanties make sure your operating system is not the type to phone home.
I'm aware of that. But the emulator was removed from being able to play on Xbox One but you can still download it through the Windows Store to play on PC or a mobile device.
MS didn't put this emulator on their system, some dev did so pretty weird to blame them for it...
I have RE 2 PSOne disks. Sadly I think the disk only work on Windows PC
Will probably get removed like the rest
Enjoy it while it lasts.
lol probably be gone by the time I finish this sentence
Wait, how can MS prevent this from working om Xbox Ones, when every Xbox one can become a "dev kit", or did tMS take that feature out? Never owned one, but I do remember that being an aspect to encourage more indie developers.
This is sneaky!
Finally xbox one will have a lot of awesome games to play XD
This is great; I'm guessing Microsoft will let it slide until Monday because they're taking the time off for Easter. 😜...the fact that it's hidden may also prolong it's discovery. Provided people on n4g don't run off to spill the beans.
*kicks over bush beans can* :|
I don't get it. Bush beans?😕
This is just a clickbait article so people read the headline people click on it to see which App has the emulator but they do not mention which App it is that the emuilater is in so more hits on their website well played guys well played.Ok I was wrong it does mention which App it is but I cant find it on my Xbox One so it must have been pulled already.
"Para encontrarlo tenéis que buscar la aplicación WinPDFReader que como decía es un lector de ficheros PDF" They mention it multiple times
it's still up for download lol
Im am still playing nes and snes roms through my browser after loading them off onedrive so no this will not disappear.
Not the same thing tho, one is thru your webbrowser, the other is a specialty app...
It's sad people have to fight so hard to play older games on console. Granted this isn't the Xbone running an OG Xbox emulator, but all modern day solutions are garbage since you have to re-buy the game on whatever platform and it's of course a digital only copy of said old game.
Or you know, you could keep your old consoles. Options are nice to have.
If that's the way you want it sure, I just prefer to have everything on one machine.
You know x1 works from Disk right? Yes you have to download it, but its a free install.
Are you talking about 360 backwards compatibility? How many titles is supported? I know OG Xbox isn't supported or I can't find any reliable info saying it is supported on the Xbone.
@NohansenBoy: Over 350 and growing. With the rate of growth over 500 by the end of this year. New titles are being added all the time from smaller digital only titles to larger titles like Call of Duty Black Ops 2. Further any content that goes backwards compatible that does offer a physical version will allow you to simply pop in the game. http://www.xbox.com/en-US/x...
@TheUndertaker85 But no Original Xbox?
@NohansenBoy Phil has stated he is working on it. Maybe we will get lucky at E3 this year. More icing is always welcome.
PS1 games don't hold up that well. I remember playing Resident Evil not that long ago and the reality didn't live up to the memories.
Let's start a betting pool on how long it stays up until Microsoft pulls it.
this is some of the best news I've heard in a while...for those who never got to play PS1 games. I recommend. All Final Fantasy games, Megaman Legends 1 and 2, Valkyrie Profile, Vagrant Story, Chrono Cross, Legend of Dragoon, Crash Team Racing, All Spyro and Crash Bandicoot games, Klonoa, Ergheiz, EINHANDER and Breath of Fire 3 and 4.
This may sell some systems for xbox if it is true. It needs to work with all ps1 games. I am just sad the xbox can do it but not sony.
Too bad it isnt free
How is it not free? Looks like it is to me.
Nope, in my currency its like 145 South African Rand. Too bad... Not prepared to pay for an emulator
Reminds me of Bleemcast days...
this wont last like the n64 emulator
It's PlayStation, not Playstation. The brand has been around for 22 years. How have people not caught on to this yet? It's as bad as 'XBox'.
What we need is Dolphin on this thing & Cemu
And just like that it's gone...(well I can't find it.)... I'm surprised they were this quick about it considering it was hidden within another app. Then again, it doesn't help having a video tutorial on YouTube splashing the name of the app in the 1st 3 seconds of the video.(idiots)😡
