Microsoft Banned All Game System Emulators From Windows Store

Microsoft has now banned system emulators from its Windows Store following the latest revision to the Windows Store policies. Meaning Microsoft has completely blocked all emulation of game systems from the Windows Store on all platforms.

As noted by NeoGaf user PGamer, Universal Emulator by NESBox has been delisted from the Store. While Microsoft has not revealed the reason behind banning all system emulators for Windows Store, however, it might be related to Xbox Live Creators Program.

In related news, Microsoft is all set to reveal the Xbox One Scorpio today and there are rumors circulating the internet suggesting games like Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Red Dead Redemption 2 will be used to showcase its 4K capabilities.

However, according to a report, The Witcher 3 might be one those games used to showcase the power of Xbox One Scorpio. According to the report, The Witcher 3 might be upgraded to 4K for Xbox One Scorpio.

While it has not been confirmed, if the rumors are true then The Witcher 3 will be a great addition to the console’s library that players will be able to play at 4K resolution.
