Wait what? Attempting to play 360 games can brick your console? Thats ******* hysterical, the best thing that's coming out of this next generation is jailbreaking quality.

No no, attempting 4chans trick in order to enable it (In reality, its impossible because of different architecture. The ability doesn't exist at the moment) to play 360 games bricks it. It sticks the console into dev mode i believe, which bricks it.

actually putting it into dev mode doesn't brick it. the instructions tell you to put in a code after that which makes the xbox restart indefinitely.

It's less attempting to play 360 games and more "attempting to put your xbone into development mode".

Read, *****, read.

Trying to make your xbone backwards compatible will brick it. Putting a 360 disk in won't do ****.

So what, the xbone has a built in "Orange Monkey Eagle" mechanism? Why would you need that?

i will be buying Xbone when it releases in my country, and i already thought that was fake. Some people on 4chan are pricks, even though that Iphone thing was a fine one, but still they are cruel people. They must hate consoles and Apple. I think they also did that Playstation thing where something happened to Playstation 3's online and people lost their credit/debit card information because of that and lost a lot of money. Thanks OP for confirming it.
