NESBox Emulator Passes Xbox One Certification


There’s a console emulator named the NESBox, that has the ability to play any NES, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis and GameBoy Color/Advance games of your choosing. As long as you have the right file type handy. This application is currently available on the Windows store, which means you can dive right into the action from the safety and comfort of your computer at home already.

But the developers of the program felt lucky, and took the opportunity to submit their creation to the Xbox One store, where it recently passed the certification standards necessary to be accepted.

The question on everyone’s mind is how long will this last? By saying the words “Nintendo” and “DMCA” in the same sentence, several recent examples of the Nintendo Company exercising their legal arm on fan-made products might pop into your mind. Remember No Mario’s Sky? How about Pokemon Uranium? That Metroid 2 remake project that was ten years in the making was swiftly taken down by Nintendo in a matter of days. Nintendo has proven they aren’t afraid of unleashing DMCAs on 100s of fan productions at once, so the odds of the NESBox surviving a week are about 50-50 right now.
