    Xbox One users tricked into destroying console with fake backwards compatibility hack

    Xbox One: Not backwards compatible (Picture: Microsoft)
    Some Xbox One users have been tricked into effectively destroying their brand new £450 console by a cruel prank that promised to unlock it to play older games.​
    A convincing looking but still surely too good to be true graphic was posted on a notorious 4chan message board featuring a series of complicated steps that would allow people to play Xbox 360 games on the Microsoft games system.​
    Warning: Do not follow the steps in the picture below!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    However, rather than making their console backwards compatible, anyone following the code sequence would have in fact rendered their Xbox One completely useless, and unfortunately the damage is irreversible.​
    The same 4chan forum previously tricked iPhone users into believing iOS7 made their phones waterproof.​

    I actually laughed really hard at the iOS7 thing.
    But 4chan is very good at making stupid people believe stupid things.

    But thanks for sharing m8.

    So you can destroy your console all from the dash? Still a big fail for MS...

    I agree on this, that's a bit weird that a user can destroy there Xbox in such a way.
