Fake Xbox One backwards compatibility guide

DO NOT follow the instructions below. We think they first appeared on 4Chan as a way to enable backwards compatibility for the Xbox One. In fact what they’ll do is simply put your Xbox One into an infinite cycle of reboots. Not cool!

The steps, which involve enabling development mode on the Xbox One, were originally posted as a way to enable backwards compatibility for the X1 (a feature left out, but that could arrive in years to come courtesy of the Xbox One cloud).

Instead all they’ll do is most likely brick your console. So we repeat, if you see them posted anywhere (even with other people saying it works) do not believe it! There is no way to enable backwards compatibility for the Xbox One and what’s more, playing around with things like development mode will only lead to tears if you don’t know what you’re doing!

UK teen purchases Xbox One picture for £450 on eBay

This is more a warning than anything else – if you are purchasing any next generation console, either a PS4 or Xbox One, from eBay or any other online platform, then beware of the scammers.

Case in point: UK teenager Peter Clatworthy who purchased a very poor quality picture of a Xbox One console for £450 on eBay. Yes, the listing description apparently said that it was for a picture, but it seems Paul ignored this and hit the purchase button anyway.

When a picture (and only a picture) eventually arrived he was understandably annoyed. But given that scammers are obviously going to be attempting things like this given the console supply shortages we’re not too sure why he wasn’t more dubious…

Anyway, we hope that our Cheats.co readers are a little more astute. Be careful out there!
