Xbox series consoles can once again run emulators in retail mode.
Previously, users were able to download applications directly from the Microsoft store which would allow them to use emulated material on any retail Xbox Series console.
Earlier this year, Microsoft reportedly disabled the loophole that would let these applications run on the retail mode of the system. Users could still run the applications in developer mode.
But now a group named UWeaPons Store has found another way to get these applications running on the retail unit.
While the group isn’t making the exact method publically known due to fears that Microsoft will also close this loophole, users looking to get access to this new method can pay the group on Patreon. The group is asking for £2/$2 per month for access to the new method.
It’s currently unclear if Microsoft will act on this new information, however, according to a new video from MVG, the method is currently working as intended at the time of publication.
Due to the performance limits of browser-based offerings, full hardware-based software remains the best way to run emulators on Xbox consoles, including those for PS2, GameCube, Nintendo Wii and Dreamcast.
Developer Mode can be accessed for a $20 fee, and lets users install development builds of software that utilize Universal Windows Platform.
