XBox Series X emulator for PC

XBox Series X & S emulator for Windows

Uploaded byBlowFlies


XBox Series X Emulator for Windows is not made for illegal activities, and we have a strict policy about piracy (see also Android and iOS version).

The main objective of this project is to enhance the gaming experience, research, and provide education about the core concepts of device emulation.


The emulator is not playable now, because there are currently few optimizations for actual desktop hardware.

The emulator will recompile all the shaders, untiling all the textures and upload all the buffers every frame, making it less efficient.

Besides, there are still some problems in the game pad emulation, so is for now deactivated.

All resources are obtained via a reverse engineering of legally owned devices, games, and information present on the internet.

To allow computer to run the application smoothly, games will necessarily run with reduced graphics compared to the original console.

It’s XBox Series X (and Series S) emulator which was just started.

A project done for fun, and for technical research.

System requirements

In order to run the application correctly, it is necessary to meet the minimum requirements given in the table below.

OS versionWindows 8.1 (or higher)
CPUOcta core 2.5+ Ghz
RAM12 GB (16 GB recommended)
Disk space256 MB
The table lists the minimum system requirements for running XBox Series X emulator Windows

It is still possible to install the app on devices not mentioned above, but we cannot guarantee its proper functioning.

We recommend backing up the device on which the app will be installed before performing any installation of third-party apps not from the official app Store.


•The current state of XBox emulator at booting decrypted kernels can be followed in the issue tracker: both Series X and Series S have been tested

•Kernel ELFs generated from memory dumps will not work since writable segments might have been modified into a state where booting is not possible. Please generate proper binaries offline by decrypting ELF segments with key on your actual console, not by dumping memory

•First userland application, /mini-syscore.elf, is decrypted and launched successfully. Shortly after /SceSysAvControl.elf is lauched which successfully handles system events.
