Xbox 360 Emulator Review

Updated on June 11, 2013

Xbox 360 Emulator

Everyone knows that these days it's pretty hard to find good working emulators, especially for the Xbox 360 platform.


Not only are newer consoles more complex than the older models (like the first Xbox or PS2), but today's hardware is much more complicated than before, so you need to do a lot of beta testing and preparation in order to come up with working emulation software.

Xbox 360 Emulation

Here's a little hint picture of what we've found & tested today:

Introduction

Luckily, we've recently stumbled upon a great piece of software - the VR Xbox 360 Emulator (developed by VRemulator).


After downloading and installing the software from the official website, we spent a few minutes configuring a few of the settings and setting up the required files. Note that we also had previously prepared an iso backup of our own personal copies of Forza 4 and Halo 4.

Anyway, what we came to find amazed us.

Not only did the emulator work perfectly with both games, but all the rest of the in-game functions worked properly as well.

We could save/load games, pause/resume, use either a keyboard/mouse combo, or use directly a USB gamepad (the native Xbox 360 controller works as well!).

We didn't test whether the online features work, but I'll make sure to test that in our next review.

In the video below, you can see how the Forza 4 Emulator works - showing directly how to use this Xbox 360 Emulator to play one of the best racing games ever made!

Summary

All in all, we have to say that we had a great time using the VR Xbox 360 Emulator, and would gladly recommend this application to ANYONE that wants to play his favorite Xbox 360 games, but just doesn't want to buy the console (or maybe your Xbox is broken).

We've been waiting for something like this for literally years, so it's great to be finally be able to have this.

Rating score: 5/5
