It's been proven that the Xbox Series S can easily run emulation through the console's dev systems.

YouTube user Modern Vintage Gamer (MVG) has showcased how users can turn their system into a unit with the power to play titles from Nintendo GameCube, the PlayStation 1, and even the Nintendo DS.

To do so, the system doesn't need to be hacked and instead simply needs to be turned into a dev unit through an app on the Xbox Store called Dev Mode Activation, although this costs $20 and comes with some limitations.

MVG detailed how owners can enable third-party apps to run through dev mode and run a variety of classic games. Numerous Nintendo GameCube games were cited, including The Legend Of Zelda: Wind Waker and Metroid Prime, which the MVG stated the Xbox Series S runs beautifully.

Outside of the Nintendo GameCube, MVG also demonstrated Nintendo Wii games such as Super Mario Galaxy and even Nintendo DS titles including The Legend Of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, however, he noted that while they work, it's not the best way to experience them - despite the ability to remap the controller. Other games such as the original Goldeneye also experience occasional slowdown, but still run better than most emulators.

Needless to say, if you're planning on trying this for yourself, you should do so at your own risk!
