PSA: Xbox One is not backwards compatible in dev mode

S. Prell, @SamPrell

Enabling developer mode on your Xbox One can lead to bad news bears, so doing so is generally ill-advised. Dev mode also doesn't suddenly make your Xbox One backwards compatible, no matter what some picture you saw on the Internet tells you.

An image that has been circulating around the Interwebz - which we've posted below the break - claims that by following six simple steps, your Xbox One will allow you to play Xbox 360 games. In reality, following these six simple steps is more likely to result in allowing your Xbox One to play the part of "paperweight" in your new one-man/woman play, "O! Technology."

Should you follow the steps listed below, the Xbox One will get caught in an infinite boot cycle, thus rendering it inoperable.

Seriously, don't try this at home kids. Or anywhere. Ever. You have been warned.
