The arrival of OUYA is just around the corner. The visionaries who supported it in its beginnings when it was a Kickstarter project will begin receiving it tomorrow, Thursday, March 28. Many game developers are supporting the project and will have games from that day and in the future, but there seems to be another surprise. NES, SNES and Nintendo 64 emulators will be available from the beginning Thanks to the work of some kind developers. The facilities of being an open source team have this type of results.
The news has jumped on the OUYA developer forum. The NES emulator will be provided by EMUya, the SNES by SuperGNES and the Nintendo 64 by Mupen64Plus. This fact opens the way for more emulators from other consoles to arrive and perhaps fans of the old SEGA have something to say in this regard.
This way of adding titles borders a bit with the illegal for that of copyright, but in all mobile platforms we see emulators without anyone having raised their hands. From EMUya it can be said that he has a store where there are more indies titles based on the NES ROM. This opens up the possibility of even more titles and, yes, completely legal.
A console is always measured by its games and, to date, this project is the most promising. There is already a good list of confirmed games, a total of 500 titles approximately. Many of them from independent developers of fame, as the creator of Portal, Kim Swift, which will premiere its next title on the platform. We knew this at the same time that we met the commitment of many other developers and the signing of Keele Santiago to manage relations with the creators. This hiring could have excellent consequences for the console. It has also been confirmed that Fez, the excellent puzzle game will also land.
