If you’ve been following the tumultuous journey of retro emulator nesbox and its attempts to come to Xbox One, you know we last left you with the sad news that Microsoft denied its application for release. In a sneaky turn of events, however, the emulator is now up and working on the home console.

Not one to turn tail, after being denied the opportunity to run on Xbox One as an app, the nesbox team put its nose to the grindstone and created an HTML5 build of its emulator. By plugging in the correct URL, this emulator can run in?you guessed it?the Xbox One’s Edge Browser. The clever work-around doesn’t stop there, though. It also can utilize OneDrive as storage for the ROMs.
Since the emulator runs remotely, Microsoft may have been delivered a checkmate in this bout. We’ll just have to wait and see what’s next. In the meantime, check out plenty of images below of people happily playing retro games.
