    Those trying to find the app today are unlikely to be successful. The app was indeed pulled from the Store!

    Yesterday, we reported on Universal Emulator one of the first game emulators built on the Windows 10 platform. The app let users load ROMs, from Nintendo and Sega, to play on Windows 10 PCs and phones. It even supports the new Bluetooth wireless Xbox One S controller, HoloLens and Microsoft's Continuum for phone.

    That didn't take long, when the news story broke yesterday about the NESBOX passing certification for Xbox One, everyone was wondering what was Microsoft or Nintendo going to do, well today we got the answer, as Microsoft pulls the app and tells the world why they did so!

    So there you have it, the Good News and Bad News, about seeing 'emulators' on our Xbox consoles, looks like for now, even tho the UWP claims to be open for all developers, the big powers to be like Microsoft will be censoring and keeping on an eye on what appears on their network, like we didn't think that would be case anyway, but at least NESBOX.com was brave enough to test it out!
