No this monitor is not compatible with Xbox one. The LG UltraFine 5K Display is a Thunderbolt display. The Thunderbolt signal must include at least one DisplayPort stream for 4K 60Hz or two DisplayPort streams for 5K. A Thunderbolt add-in card such as the GC-ALPINE RIDGE can convert DisplayPort into Thunderbolt, but the Xbox One does not produce DisplayPort. There are HDMI to DisplayPort adapters, but they currently work at only up to 4K 30Hz or 2560x1440 60Hz. Next year may see HDMI 2.0 to DisplayPort 1.2 adapters that support 4K 60Hz. The LG UltraFine 5K display may support 2560x1440 60Hz, but I don't think the Xbox one can produce that (Microsoft said the Xbox One X will in the future). I'm not sure if the LG Ultrafine 5K supports 1080p.
