The '''[[Wikipedia:Xbox One|Xbox One]]''' is an eighth-generation home video game console produced by Microsoft on November 22, 2013 and was retailed for {{inflation|USD|499|2013}}. 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 [[wikipedia:Digital rights management|DRM]], such as always-online and lack of used game sharing. These have since been removed. Notably, this console runs on the [[wikipedia:x86|x86]] architecture with a modified Windows OS, so it is essentially a PC.

===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.  In February 2019, there was a rumor that Microsoft was testing with the idea of native Xbox One support for Windows 10, meaning that instead of using a specialized PC port, it would use the actual game image from the Xbox Live servers. It was speculated to appear sometime in the April 2019 update, but has yet to be released with no direct evidence to confirm or deny the possibility of it being in a later update.
