This is a PS4 running through an Xbox One

1 min read


Microsoft’s Xbox One features an HDMI-in that allows you to connect a TV set-top box or other HDMI device and run it through the console. Many wondered if you’d be able to run a console, like the Xbox 360 or even be sacrilegious and run a PlayStation 4 through the Xbox One. You can; you might not want to though.

The chaps at Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry did just that – and have shown that it does indeed work, but there’s an inherent input lag as the Xbox One needs to scale and resize everything. 

Of course, it’s not meant to be an expensive throughput for your other systems, but I was hoping to run my 360 through the Xbox One to save an HDMI port on my TV. For the purpose it’s been designed for, it seems to work exceptionally well.

Of course, some people like to take things to extremes. Kotaku’s got an Xbox 360, running through an Xbox One, running through another Xbox One. It’s ludicrous.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
