但是，最近Xenia的作者大神Ben Vanik倒是狠狠的出了一把风头，因为某个二百五小编对他做了个貌似挺专业的采访，在该采访中据称Ben认为很有可能未来一年内将会出现PS4或者Xbox ONE的实作模拟器。
大家一定要确立一个概念，那就是使用X86 CPU的硬件设备并不完全等同于PC，就算你游戏机的CPU+GPU和你电脑的CPU+GPU一模一样，你游戏机里的程序也很难在你PC上运行。因为主板构架（I/O南北桥）不同，决定了内存存取方式不同；不同的OS，文件格式也可以完全不同。所以同样使用X86 CPU的Xbox/Xbox360至今也没有一个实用的模拟器。
Xenia – Xbox 360 Emulator Research Project
Xenia is an experimental emulator for the Xbox 360. It does not run games (yet), and if you are unable to understand that please leave now.
Come chat with us in #xenia @ irc.freenode.net.
Currently supported features:
Coming soon (maybe):
The goal of this project is to experiment, research, and educate on the topic of emulation of modern devices and operating systems. It is not for enabling illegal activity. All information is obtained via reverse engineering of legally purchased devices and games and information made public on the internet (you’d be surprised what’s indexed on Google…).
# install python 2.7 and VS2013 git clone https://github.com/benvanik/xenia.git cd xenia xb setup # open build\xenia\xenia.sln and start xenia-run
When fetching updates use
xb pull to automatically fetch everything and update gyp files/etc.

NO. I am not releasing binaries – at least not for awhile. Don’t be an idiot and download a binary claiming to be of this project. In fact, don’t be an idiot and download any binary claiming to be an Xbox 360 or PS3 emulator fromany source, especially not YouTube videos and shady websites. Come on people. Jeez.
You’ll need 64-bit Windows 7 with a processor supporting at least SSE4. It’s only tested on Windows 8 and that may become a requirement as several of the APIs exposed there are beneficial to emulation. In general if you have to ask if your machine is good enough to run games at a decent speed the answer is no.
The project is designed to support non-Windows platforms but until it’s running games it’s not worth the maintenance burden. If you’re a really passionate Linux/OSX-based developer and want to help out, run Bootcamp/VM and contribute an OpenGL 4 driver – that’ll be the most difficult part in porting to non-Windows platforms.
DirectX 11 support is required. To get full speed and compatibility Mantle may be required in the future (which means R9 AMD cards and up).
In general: ‘I don’t care.’
Here’s a short list of common ones:
- ‘Why Python 2.7? 3 is awesome!’ — agreed, but gyp needs 2.7.
- ‘Why this GYP stuff?’ — CMake sucks, managing Xcode projects by hand sucks, and for the large cross-platform project this will become I’m not interested in keeping all the platforms building any other way.
- ‘Why this xenia-build.py stuff?’ — I like it, it helps me. If you want to manually execute commands have fun, nothing is stopping you.
Currently everything is traced to stdout, which is slow and silly. A better tracing format is being worked on.
