    It seems that malware is spreading amongst people that tried downloading the claimed XBone emulator.
    A video showed footage of the fake emulator which gained 75.000 views

    Personally, I think it's pretty funny.
    However this could become a serious problem.

    Why would an Xbone emulator be out when the console itself is months away from being released ? Bunch of idiots, they earned their malware.

    What kind of Beast would Emulate the Xbox one?
    the X360 Emulation isn´t even 100% accurate, imagine the X1.....

    Well, if the architecture is close enough it might actually be easier to emulate/virtualize. It's still obviously fake though :P

    I disagree. I think anyone dumb enough to fall for this shouldn't be using oxygen.

    I was about to say something along the lines of "anyone who falls for this deserves whatever the consequences" but you beat me to it. :angry:

    I was going to say something similar in the OP, but I couldn't...
    So I just left it with that I find it pretty hilarious.

    It's a weird day when I make the nicest comment in these sorts of threads.

    If you believe that there is any Xbone emulator, you deserve the Malware.

    Not defending this in any way, but wasn't there a working GBA emulator available before the handheld reached American shores?
