OUYA Console to Play Host to “All” of Expert Emulator’s Work
Leading Android emulator Robert Broglia stated as much on the official forums.
The foremost expert on Android emulators Robert Broglia has recently posted on the official OUYA forums that he will be bringing all of his work to the console when it releases. This includes emulators for a multitude of well-known consoles from Nintendo and Sega, even the Neo-Geo and Atari 2600.
The first emulator to launch is Snes9x EX+ which will feature “near complete game compatibility”. Combined with the sheer amount of titles released across all the major handhelds and consoles of the past few decades, the OUYA seems set in terms of playable titles.
It will be interesting to see how the respective game companies respond to this. For what it’s worth, they haven’t really persecuted emulator developers as far as the PC platform is concerned. But if the emulators become a major source of revenue for the OUYA, the legal eagles could come, er, pecking.
We’ll see how the situation plays out when the console releases today for the various Kickstarter backers.
