The controversy was about to break out on Xbox and it is that user reports indicated that the developer mode, for which they had paid a fee, was deactivated without prior notice from their consoles. However, this was an error according to Jason Ronald, although what happened showed the use that some give to this function and that it is not exactly legal.

A scare for those who have installed emulators and pirated software on their Xbox

Through a post on his official Twitter account, Jason Ronald, Xbox’s director of program management, reported that Xbox did not disable developer mode for users’ consoles, be it Xbox One or Xbox Series X | S. According to Ronald, this was due to a maintenance process that caused the inactive accounts to be deactivated, but he assured that the Xbox team is already working to solve it as soon as possible.
