Windows 98 launches on Xbox Series to play 20-year-old games

To play the most recent games, consoles from Microsoft and Sony are often purchased. It turns out that you can play older games on your Xbox Series, but those games are not for Xbox.

 

You can install Windows 98 on your console and play the games you like. The process isn’t easy. RetroArch emulators are required to allow you to run DOSBox Pure. This allows you to then install Windows 98. Although the source doesn’t specify, it is likely possible because modern Microsoft consoles rely upon quite ordinary computer components.

All software must be loaded via ISO disc images, even Windows. FTP is required in this situation, as the optical drive won’t work.

We can also note that DOSBox Pure has an emulated 3dfx Voodoo of 12 MB memory. This allows us to run Turok with our Glide API.

Performance isn’t as straightforward as one might think. The Xbox Series consoles are disproportionately more productive that the PC components. However, the APU that powers the set-top box’s central processor cannot be used. The system emulates a powerful processor, but not the fastest GPU. This is sufficient to play the games.
