Emulated

The Xbox One is an eighth-generation home video game console produced by Microsoft on November 22, 2013 and was retailed for $499 ($539.61 in 2018 money). It had an AMD 8-core APU at 1.75 GHz and 8GB of RAM. It has an AMD GPU on the AMD Radeon GCN architecture. Early in its life, it was heavily criticized for intrusive DRM, such as always-online and lack of used game sharing. These have since been removed. Notably, this console runs on the x86 architecture with a modified Windows OS, so it is essentially a PC.

Emulators

THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO EMULATORS FOR THIS CONSOLE. ANY YOUTUBE VIDEOS CLAIMING TO OFFER THEM ARE SCAMS!

Emulation issues

Despite this console using the same architecture as PCs, it is not any easier to emulate than other consoles as the architecture used is complex and uses undocumented hardware. We have no way to know for sure because the console is not even hacked yet to a degree that people can look and test stuff and tell for sure, let alone for a full emulator to be written. Currently, there's a rumor that Windows 10 will be adding support to play Xbox One games natively off a PC in the near future, given your computer is powerful enough to handle it.
