XBox 360 emulator PC Windows


Xenia emulator for PC is an experimental project compatible with Windows and MacOS. It can run most games of XBox 360 on PC devices (see also Android OS and iOS version).

Typically, the emulator updates once every two to four weeks, with Patreon supporters receiving updates a week before the public release. Though it is still under development, it is able to run certain games smoothly. It was successful at booting and running Forza Motor Sport 4 soon after its release.

Xenia is not for enabling illegal activity. The goal of this project is to experiment, research, and educate on the topic of emulation of modern devices and operating systems. All information is obtained via reverse engineering of legally purchased devices, games, and information made public on the internet.


This is an open source research project for emulating Xbox 360 games on modern PCs. Code and content are covered under a BSD license.

For proper handling of the GPU’s capabilities, Xenia now requires a specific feature of Direct3D 12 called Rasterizer-Ordered Views which is limited only to newer cards. Xenia is capable of 3×3 upscaling, but such a feature is resource intensive and can only be accomplished with high-end GPUs at the moment.

Xenia will never be able to connect to the real Xbox Live network. A simulated Live-like network is possible, however anything that interfaces with the official Microsoft services is not only not possible, but not something the project seeks to enable.


This XBox 360 emulator will check the PC for the minimum supported CPU and GPU on startup and error out if one is not detected. Make sure that you have the latest drivers installed. You cannot just remove the checks in the code and assume things will work.

Minimum requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 or above
  • Windows <10 support is limited. Don’t expect anything to work.
  • Runs on Linux with Wine using Vulkan.
  • CPU: 64-bit x86 processor with AVX(2) support
  • You can check with CPU-Z
  • GPU: Direct3D 12-compatible or Vulkan-compatible GPU from this list
  • You can check with GPU-Z
  • Direct3D 12 will only work on Windows 10 due to D3D12on7 and vkd3d not being supported.
  • GPUs without ROV (rasterizer-ordered view) / fragment shader interlock support will perform worse and possibly have more graphical issues. Integrated GPUs will also generally provide frame rates too low for comfortable playing.
  • AMD GPUs also fall under this due to Xenia triggering driver bugs causing crashes.
  • RAM: 4GB
  • 2017/2019 x64 Visual C++ Redistributable

Recommended requirements

  • OS: Windows 8 or above
  • CPU: 4th generation or later i5/i7 64-bit x86 processor with AVX(2) support
  • You can check with CPU-Z
  • GPU: GTX 980 Ti or later
  • You can check with GPU-Z
  • RAM: 6GB or more
