    Game aficionados of some great past consoles will be happy to learn the OUYA will not be limited to just a small smattering of original content at its beginning launch. According to the latest report, the new Android gaming console will have built-in emulator support for a number of different consoles of old. Here's a quote with more info,

    What do you guys think of this news? Are there any old console games you are looking forward to firing up on the OUYA?

    YOu have to wonder if Nintendo will be watching this thing closely because of illegal ROMs. Emulators aren't illegal, but the ROMs are unless they are somehow legally purchased.

    I do like the idea of the emulators. I wouldn't mind my kids playing some of the games I grew up on.

    Ocarina of Time is enough to justify this whole system haha. I grew up with that game and it is still my favorite to this day.... As John said, the rom situation will be interesting.

    Emulation was one of the main reasons why I backed the ouya project.
    And in the case of ROMs, they can just say that they don't provide the ROMs just like every other emulator out there claims just for legal reasons.

    Actually ROMs are legal if you own the cart.

    If there is a legal way to buy ROM's for the Ouya, and the ROM's are competitively priced at today's mobile game pricing schema (see Google Play, Amazon Appstore and Apple Appstore), I'd buy them. But if I owned the game in my youth, and can't find them because they, "were left at the parents house and have since 'suspiciously' disappeared," I will have to be...creative. :happy3:
