Yes the title might sound a little crazy, however it's as legit as it comes. JaralStudio have managed to sneak a fully functional GBA emulator on to the Xbox Store, disguised as a PDF Viewer. Not only that, since publishing this article it turns out they have also published a PlayStation 1 emulator and a Nintendo 64 emulator too!
To install these emulators on your Xbox One you can do the following:
- WinPDF is a N64 Emulator
- WinPDFReader is a PlayStation 1 Emulator
- SimplePDFViewer is a GameBoy Advance, GameBoy and GameBoy Colour Emulator
Once installed load up the app you purchased on your Xbox One, it will look just like a PDF Viewer, however press LB & RB + LT & RT. This will unlock the hidden emulator.
- Go to the store and search for one of the above apps
- You then have to buy the app in question
- Then simply let it download and install on your Xbox One
The emulators are capable of loading roms from a USB hard drive, or your OneDrive account.
This probably won't last too long as Microsoft has recently banned emulators from the Windows 10 and Xbox One store, however for now if you want a bit a retro action on your Xbox One, it's now more than possible.
