Over at the OUYA forum, I found a ‘tidbit’ of information for fans of old school retro games.
The posting found on the forum states that several well known emulators will be coming to the OUYA. Those gamers who love the classic NES and SNES games should rejoice. According to the developer of EMUya, the NES emulator has already been submitted for review and should be available on the the OUYA at launch (March 28th). SNES & N64 fans will have a options as well. Both the SuperGNES SNES emulator, and Mupen64Plus N64 Emulator, will also be ported over to the OUYA. We have confirmed that the Mupen64Plus emulator will be available at launch. On top of this, today, we’ve learned via twitter that one developer is even working on an N-Gage emulator for the console.
For me, this is exciting news, I always love kicking back old school and play an 8-bit or 16-bit title from back in the day. You can be sure that I’ll be keeping an eye on the emulator front. There is one thing that concerns me, and that’s HOW MUCH will be charged. There is no mention whether these emulators will be free to download…I think they should be, you’re not buying a game, just the ability to play ROMs on a different platform..which some might consider a problem.. legally speaking.
