  • NES emulation on Xbox 360

    Posted on March 27th, 2006 Finster No comments

    I love the modding community. Somehow, they’ve figured out how to “stream” a playable NES emulator via a Windows Media Center PC.

    This is definitely something I’ve been waiting for on the next-gen consoles. I mean, come on! Bionic Commando in 480p!

    Seriously, though, I guess there has always been the raging debate about emulation. I feel like those that are violently against it ignore that many games are lost to the travails of time. True, it undermines the ability of license holders to release successful “old-school” compilations.

    I guess what I’m saying is that I can understand the point of view of both sides of the emulation argument. I have to wonder, though, if Square’s release of Final Fantasy V in the states (compiled with FF IV as a PS1 release) would’ve been viable without the built-in support created by the success of FFV in the ROM community.
