Some users decided to create a PlayStation 1 emulator for Xbox X and S Series consoles, here we tell you all about it.
It seems that Microsoft’s new platform known as Xbox X Series X/S never ceases to amaze people because if it is not the great quality of its online services, it is the quality of games that come to Game Pass on day one.
But not everything good about this console comes from Microsoft itself, it is also important to note the things that fans make possible, such as what we will see below which is an emulator of the first Sony console, which runs perfectly within this powerful video game console.
This is not official, so it is important to clarify it once and for all to avoid thinking that, somehow, the companies have become partners.
Sony’s current consoles, either the PlayStation 4 or 5, are well known for having good and quality exclusive games, which are considered games of the year or have even won that much-prized award.
But despite the great quality of games that Sony has inside their consoles exclusively, there is something conspicuous by its absence, and that is the emulators of their old video game consoles, and their absence is even more conspicuous when we see that both Nintendo and Xbox have managed to put classic games inside their new consoles.
Despite fan requests, Sony has not managed to find a way to offer their classics in a way that everyone can play digitally and get them in the platform stores.
The funny thing is that there is already a PlayStation 1 emulator inside the Xbox Series X/S and it is an emulator that apart from being of great quality, also makes the games of the old disc console run better than ever.
This emulator is called Duckstation and manages to make games run at native 4K resolution and 60 FPS. This means that, apart from emulating the console, it greatly improves the quality of the games that can be enjoyed there.
The emulator comes with a rather interesting trade-off, as it seems that running these games at such a large resolution makes the Xbox Series X try too hard to run it. So it may not be such a good idea to install it yet, but the same doesn’t happen with the Xbox Series S, which is quite curious.
That means that if you have a digital-only console, you might have a better experience running the Duckstation emulator, and it’s not that it can’t be enjoyed on the X Series, but that’s something you’ll want to take into account before you start downloading it.
If you want to see how this emulator powers both consoles, then we’ve got the video below.
Also, remember that modifying the console in any way could cause you to lose your warranty and make it impossible for Xbox to help you if you need it, so we don’t recommend doing so if this is a concern.
