I haven't found one, so they might not be "Fake" but - they are not publicly available for download or use, sorry pal.

Google is a hell of a thing.

If you could reliably emulate the powerPC architecture then MS could cheaply include backwards comparability in the Xbone.

Given the specs you need to emulate wii in dolphin with a steady frame rate I am going to wild conjecture that PC emulators will exist a couple of (PC) generations from now.

I dont think PC's yet are able to brute force emulate the 360 yet. You need around 10 times the power of the platform to do so.

They are fake.

I don't believe that there is even a working OG Xbox emu for the PC.

No.

I don't think there will be as much drive to emulate the 360 as there was for the PS2, Gamecube, N64, etc. Most of the more popular games on it were ported to the PC at some point, and the few that weren't (Red Dead, Shadow Complex, Halo 3-4, Gears 2 + 3) don't quite seem like enough to get the sorts of people that program emulators riled up enough to get a working one.

Also, PC's just aren't that powerful yet. Keep in mind that the PS4 is coming out soon and there are some PS2 games that have trouble on PCSX2.

Fake, no way PCs are powerful enough for software emulation of the 360.

Also this is stepping into a morally grey area that generally probably shouldn't be discussed on the forums (especially when discussing consoles that are still current gen).

I have always been under the impression that discussing emulators is fine; discussing emulators to do illegal activities is not. For instance, I could talk to somebody about ripping a legal PS2 disc to their PC to play with PCSX2, but I couldn't tell them where to download a copy of the game from the internet.

If I'm wrong, then mods can correct me, but that's just where I've always thought the line with discussing emulators lay.

It'll take a hell of a time before PS360 emulators become a thing. I think the number I've seen before is that a PC needs to be four times as powerful as the console it's emulating? Hell, PS2 emulators are just getting to the point where they are consistently functional.

It is all about the fact the 360 is a DRM hardened platform. It is coming up with system that eliminates, emulates, or functions exactly like it that is going to require a ton of work where Microsoft is under no obligation to give anyone hints on how it works.

True, that's why I said its a morally grey area. Jeff and co. are obviously torn on the issue as well, what with wanting to preserve games as a medium and the fact that emulators are the only way that can really be achieved right now.

The thing that seems off for me is that the 360 isn't even an old gen console yet, so the person asking is most likely interested in getting a 360 emulator as an alternative to having to buy the console. At that point I severely doubt they are planning to play the games using their disc drives or ripping their own ISOs, rather I reckon they are planning to download the games to boot. Obviously we aren't exactly all gunna post links here where you can download 360 games and so on, but still for the reasons I just mentioned it seems dirty to discuss this.

Original question has been answered, so I'm locking this down.
