NES, SNES, Mega Drive and GameBoy emulator to be released on Xbox One in a few days!
Universal Emulator, an independent application by developer Nesbox, passed Xbox One certification today. It allows users to play ROMs of NES, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advanced titles.
Nintendo might have something to say about this, they been hard-core recently on shutting down anything fan-related, and while this Universal Emulator does not contain any cough (illegal ROM's, actual cartridge backups), it does contain some Fan-Related games written for the old hardware, and it does allow you to Load ROM's via a USB Drive, so there is that grey-line of copyright all over again.
This is for sure one hot-fired news story to follow, and everyone in the press world is waiting already to see what Microsoft does in the end, and what Nintendo will most likely do afterwards or even before, so the next few days will be 'cross-your-fingers' and hope it sails thru, and then it will be 'cross-your-toes' and wonder how long it lasts before it the big delete button is pressed by powers to be.
