Nintendo has filed a lawsuit against the alleged operator of the popular console ROM sites LoveROMS.com and LoveRETRO.co.

The sites are among the most notorious online hubs for pirated games, according to Nintendo, and face millions of dollars in potential damages. With the launch of NES Classic Games on their Nintendo Switch coming up soon in September, it means we are in for another wave of crackdowns by big 'N' over any site that offers Emulators or Retro ROMs for playing Nintendo games on other platforms.

In a 67GB Folder of ROMs on a Private Forum! / They were found in a folder called "DO NOT UPLOAD."!

Don't say it couldn't be done, as this 'programmer' has done it, with a bit of modding and hacking!

You own some SNES cartridges, but you only have NES console, well no problem, as you can now run SNES games on your original NES!
