Not easily. You'd need some way to get sound out of the XBox One X in an analog fashion, and then hook it to the 3.5mm (headphone style) line in jack on the PLAY:5. And you'd also get a minimum of the 70ms delay as Sonos processes the data on the line in. Could be deadly in game play.

Much easier to get one of Sonos' TV connecting devices, the Beam, PLAYBAR or PLAYBASE. Then you'd get any sound that goes through your TV in the Sonos ecosystem, and since the inputs on those devices are digital, you wouldn't get that delay that the PLAY:5s analog input has.
okay sounds like its not worth the effort, thank you
