NES Emulator Nixed On Xbox After Passing Certification

By  | 


“NESbox” made all the gaming sites as an NES emulator that managed to get green-lit for sale on the Xbox store. Microsoft realized not long ago about their goof and pulled the app from the store. Their reason, surprisingly, was not that it played Nintendo games.

Instead, Microsoft stated the app was pulled as it wasn’t uploaded via the [email protected] program. Granted, that news comes from Reddit, but seems to be confirmed by other reports.

Does this mean that Microsoft will actually allow an NES Emulator to be downloadable on their platform? I can’t imagine how that will go with Nintendo, but then again I don’t know how the legality of all that works.
