YouTuber Modern Vintage Gamer recently showcased Microsoft’s Xbox Series S emulating classic PlayStation titles at a pristine resolution of 4K. Check out the video below to see it in more detail.
The YouTuber was able to achieve this feat using Xbox Series S’ developer mode. which allows unsigned code to run on the console. Of course, that includes emulators – and a PS1 emulator by the name of DuckStation 1 is able to run games like Crash Bandicoot, Tomb Raider, and more with updated visuals. The Xbox Series S, and by extension the Xbox Series X, are also capable of emulating even the GameCube and PS2, which makes a great case for converting the console into an emulation hub of sorts.
The best part is that fans only need to pay a nominal fee to access the developer mode, and this doesn’t void the console’s warranty.
