15-day suspensions handed out to users of retail emulators as a warning shot from Microsoft

Microsoft has taken measures to prevent the use of emulators and unauthorized software on their consoles, including banning users who violate their terms of service. Some users on Twitter claim that a significant number of Xbox users who have still been accessing these emulators have been receiving 15-day bans. Only in Developer Mode, users can sideload applications and execute code outside the official Microsoft Store, which might potentially allow running emulators or other unauthorized software. However, it’s important to highlight that accessing Developer Mode requires purchasing a Dev Mode Activation License, which comes with a cost and is intended for legitimate developers to create and test applications for the Xbox platform. However, using Developer Mode for purposes other than legitimate development activities, such as running emulators or unauthorized software, may again violate Microsoft’s terms of service. As with any form of unauthorized use or modification of gaming consoles, there is again a risk of enforcement actions, including bans or other restrictions.
