Original Xbox source code and development kit leaked online

The source code and operating system for Microsoft’s original Xbox have appeared online, though it’s unlikely to improve emulation.

Microsoft and the majority of fans may be focused on the upcoming Xbox Series X , but there are still plenty that are enamoured with the company’s past hardware, like the original Xbox.

That’s why many will be interested to know that the source code for the Xbox has leaked online. This includes the kernel, the computer program at the core of the console’s operating system, which is a custom version of Windows 2000.

The leak has been confirmed as genuine by The Verge and also includes the development kit, internal documents, emulators used for testing, and some build environments.

Despite this being a big leak, this source code had already been shared privately between enthusiasts in the past, meaning that this isn’t going to advance development on Xbox emulation on PC.

While it is possible, Xbox emulators have been unable to replicate the original operating system. Out of the 900 games available for the console, only 40 of them can apparently be emulated, and even then, they have limited support.

Alongside this, the source code for a near-complete version of Microsoft’s Windows NT 3.5, another old operating system that Microsoft dropped support for in 2001, also leaked.

Microsoft, regarding the Xbox leak, has stated that it is ‘aware of these reports and [is] investigating,’ but it hasn’t comment on the Windows leak.

The Xbox Series X is currently scheduled to release in time for Christmas this year.
