Back in September the Reddit community were sharing how to play NES, SNES, GENESIS (MEGADRIVE) , GAMEBOY and GAMEBOY ADVANCE games on your Xbox One console…. It seems that there are still LOADS of people out there who arent doing this simple trick – as we have been asked 4 times in the past few days if its possible… So here you go guys….
1: Put the EXTRACTED Roms to your onedrive account (the one linked with your Xbox Account)
2: on your Xbox One go to the Edge and open the URL bar and type nesbox.itch.io/x1
3: opens a page (recommended to make it your home page if you don’t surf the web on your xbox like me)
4: Click start and switch controls to the webpage controls
5: click add rom from onedrive
6: Select the unpacked Rom files you want
7: Might give you an error but click ok. refresh the page (if the roms dont auto load up on the list)
8: Click Full Screen
9: Click Start and change controls back to the Game controls
10: Enjoy life!
Notes: When in the OneDrive page (using web controls) click B to refresh if needed
