You have to register for something called devmode which costs $20. Then you have to activate it on xbox. After that you install retro arch, and run your emulators through that.

Any advice?superxxxstud wrote: ↑ I am not sure what to do. I would buy a console for a 1080p tv (the last best plasma ever created). Sure one day it will die but I am not replacing it until it does because i love it.
I understand that the xbox x is not available but has more storage, ram and graphical capabilities (to support 4k which i won't have for the foreseeable future but who knows, my tv might explode tonight). I never like to have too many games because i enjoy playing and finishing every game one at a time. Kids like playing the same game over and over again (minecraft).
What would you guys do?

If the switch had proven anything, it's specs and graphics don't matter all that much, games do. So don't worry too much about ram, gpu, cpu or whatever.

I heard from MVG that Microsoft is now locking out developer mode for people that haven't posted an app in 90 days, which would mean good bye emulation.ChippewaBarr wrote: ↑ Oh man that Fire Red/Leaf Green version on GBA is amazing.

For real though the new Xbox's (Series models) have developed quite a following in the emulation community as you can play pretty much everything up to and including Dreamcast and Wii at the high end. Pretty impressive stuff.

It was actually an accident as they were doing it for preview program users who hadn't signed in and stuff but that's even older news as you don't even need dev mode.

This was exactly my thinking... until I played a Series S. Having played a Series X, I was expecting a lesser experience: it is exactly the same, It just doesn't output at 4K. It is just as fast as the Series X, has the same next gen features (quick resume, smart delivery...) and is substantially cheaper.

Honestly, there are three main differences between the Series S and the Series X.
- No Disk Drive (doesn't matter for Game Pass)
- Less Storage (500 GB vs 1000 GB)
- No 4K
If you want this for game pass, and can live without the 4K, get the Series S. I dare say that 60% of people wouldn't notice the difference between 1080p and 4K. I know that my wife, kids, and parents can't or just don't care. It's the best value console by a long shot, and gives you access to hundreds of games through game pass for at a totally unbeatable price.

I really do not mind if the storage is 500gb or even less as I hardly have more than 3 games on my PS5. I just delete the game that I dont play anymore to make space for new.
If the experience does not feel bad then this is the best option for me.
Thanks for the help.
