i have nintendo, super nintendo, and N64 emulators and every game made for them on a spare hardrive.

the emulators are not illegal. the roms (games) are illegal if you do not own the original copy. they are "backups".

i got my backups a few years back before nintendo started forcing them to be taken off sites on the internet. nintendo was getting prepared to sell classic games on the wii and knew no one would buy them if they could get "backups" from the internet.

however, you can still aquire these backup copys via torrent sites. but be warned this is illegal if you do not own the orgional game.

Consoles are for gaming Bin, not typing resumes. Sure, next-gen consoles have sh*t like ESPN and NetFlix, but it all comes down to gaming. People generally buy consoles because they can uphold high-end graphics for $300-$500 for 5-7 years without having to worry about upgrading.

But yeah, I think they just added this topic to the forum for appeal. Who cares though, the more gaming topics the merrier I always say!

Also, I'm pretty sure it's illegal regardless of if you own it or not, it's just they don't care about $1-$5 games anymore.

This for me breaks down into morality and legality...
for example the tv show bait car...cops setup a bait car for theives to try and take. they arrest a cop driving the bait car. leave his car there unlocked, keys on dash etc. If you were a good samaritan you would lock his car for him right? wrong if you did this you can get charged with tampering. I digress, its morally right to think i paid for a game, on say snes, I own legend of zelda for snes, i can download a "copy" for my pc in case anything awful happens to my prized LOZ game. wrong its infringement on itellectual right blah. morally right? yes. legally no
