Want to play your favourite Xbox 360 titles on your shiny new Xbox One? Follow these instructions and you’ll end up playing nothing

Ah, internet, first you told me Santa wasn’t real, now you’re trying to destroy my shiny new toy.
The folks over at 4chan have devilishly put together a rather authentic image which makes users believe that they can turn on backwards compatibility on their Xbox One so they can play their old Xbox 360 games, when in reality all it does is make it a big, black, giant, expensive paperweight.
The instructions tell the player that the backwards compatibility is disabled by default, and following a specific set of instructions will turn on said feature, when in reality, all it does is brick your console.
