BumpInTheNight: But seriously, both of the new consoles are getting pretty similar to real PC hardware, emulation should be pretty approachable.


The Xbox 1 (which was the first Xbox; not to be confused with the Xbox One which is the third Xbox) was pretty close to stock x86 PC hardware, too, but a dozen years later the best freely available emulator (excluding the backwards compatibility system in the Xbox 360, which was the 360th Xbox) is maybe only 10% functional.  Good if your idea of fun is "look at the Halo 1 title screen".
