OUYA It has become one of the first video consoles to come with Android as the operating system. It doesn’t seem like it can compete with the big game consoles like PlayStation or Xbox, but it will be an ideal option for casual games and other options. The latest news indicates that, in addition, it will come with emulators for retro Nintendo 64, NES, SNES consoles for which it will be able to run the video games of the old Nintendo desktops.
The legality of this is not very clear. Actually, it is clear, it is not legal. The rights to the games are owned by Nintendo, and no one may use them without your permission. However, these are video games that are no longer played, and old consoles that will never be sold again, except by collectors. Therefore, it seems that the emulators of these game consoles can only give them value and help to revive what they were at the time. Also, they have never complained about emulators on the market before, so it seems that there will be no problems in this case either, although it is something slightly different as it can be used as a business reason.
As for the emulators that it will have, we find EMUya for the NES console, with SuperGNES for the SNES games, and with Mupen64Plus for the Nintendo 64 console. Now we will have to see if the same will happen with the SEGA game consoles , which are also very famous and have emulators for Android.
An immense catalog
With this movement, they get the OUYA catalog to grow immensely, even if it is with titles from many years ago. And it is that, in the end, it is the amount of games that we can play that defines in many cases the greatness of a video game console. In addition to the emulated ones, 500 different titles have already been confirmed for the console. OUYA will begin to reach buyers tomorrow, and many of the games will be available from tomorrow. Without a doubt, it is a launch that must be taken into account.
