Xbox One owners who use the system’s developer tool menus to try making the console backwards compatible with Xbox 360 games could end up bricking their console, according to Major Nelson. The reason the warning was issued in the first place, is due to an image making a round or three on the Internet. The image states that if you follow the steps listed, you can force your console to play 360 games. All it does in the end however, is make your shiny new console useless, apparently. So, don’t do it. Hopefully, not too may have been fooled by the false information. Via Kotaku.
