When the NES Classic Edition was initially announced as shipping with a preset list of thirty popular games, many scoffed. The selection of titles certainly reads like a who's who of memorable NES classics, but of course, there was always the question of why there wasn't some way to build upon that collection with some sort of NES-centered eShop.
Nonetheless, it was only a matter of weeks before hackers figured out how to load other NES games, or 16-bit games for that matter, onto the microconsole. Now, it seems they've taken things to the next level.
A video recently surfaced on YouTube showing off how the hardware would fare when running certain N64 games, and the results are mixed to say the least. Mario Kart 64, Wave Race 64, Super Mario 64, and a few others are all on display here, and while some of them can barely run on the hardware, others are surprisingly solid. It's fascinating to see, and it really makes one wonder how far hackers will be able to push the hardware.
Sega's ill-fated 32X is also possible, as you can see from the video below:
