First post on NES-Emulating Phone Fanboy


A little something different: it's not a DS, but it is at least similar in that it's a handheld device that plays Nintendo games. If there's only one thing we want in life, it's the ability to have hundreds of NES games on hand at any moment. Let's forget the legal issues right now and just marvel at the technical wonder of a cell phone that not only comes preloaded with a NES emulator, but is designed with a reasonable button layout to play them.

Welcome to the future. If you had told us twenty years ago that there was a portable device that could store and play NES games, we would have been impressed. If you had told us that it would also have a TV-out, we would say 'neat.' But there is no way we would have conceived of the idea that such functions would be extras on a telephone that also has a digital camera.

Okay, we'll stop forgetting now and get to the major problem: downloading NES ROMs is illegal and violates Nintendo's copyright. Even backing up games you own is questionable. Oh, well, this phone probably won't make it to the US anyway, so we won't be forced into any moral dilemmas.
