  • Video Let's See How That Xbox One N64 Emulator Held Up

    Gone but not forgotten

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOUCSIaFutg Despite the recently infamous Win64e10 emulator being removed, we managed to download it before Microsoft pulled it from the Xbox One Store and put it through its paces. The blurb promised it to be the most powerful N64 emulator on Windows 10, but if it runs anything like it does...

  • News Nintendo 64 Emulator Unceremoniously Yanked From Xbox One Store

    Double quick

    Yesterday we reported on the fact that a Nintendo 64 emulator was available for download on Microsoft's Xbox One console. Win64e10 - which retailed for $9.99 - allowed Xbox One owners to run N64 ROMs on their consoles by copying the games to a OneDrive account and loading them into the emulator. The app actually went live over the...

  • News The Xbox One Now Has A Nintendo 64 Emulator

    But for how long?

    Given the recent fuss surrounding a NES emulator on the Xbox One - and the resultant "will it, won't it" saga - it's perhaps a little surprising that you can now boot up your Xbox One system and download an N64 emulator.

  • News Microsoft Blocks NESBox Emulator On Xbox One

    That was quick

    The NESBox saga appears to be drawing to a close with Microsoft "unpublishing" the app after it was submitted for launch on its Xbox One console.

    Your move, Nintendo

NESBox will allow Xbox owners to play classic NES titles on their consoles, as well as load up fan-made games. ROMs will be...

  • News The Xbox One Might Be Getting A NES Emulator

    Nintendo's legal team, take note

    Given this is a Nintendo-focused site many of you may not be aware that it is now possible for Windows developers to submit their applications for release on the Xbox One. It's all part of Microsoft's overarching plan to unify its business interests and should - on the whole - result in benefits for console users...

  • News Orders Open For Xbox One in China as Nintendo Looks On

    Is the big N missing the boat?

    Earlier this year China formalised its plans to allow dedicated game consoles to be manufactured and sold in the country, opening the door for conventional systems in a marketplace that had previously consisted of black market goods and legal plug-and-play workarounds; Nintendo has successfully utilised the latter with...

  • Video Xbox One vs. Nintendo 64

    There's a reason why the classics are referred to as classics

    A new comparison video by Jeff Rubin, in which he pits the Xbox One against 1996's Nintendo 64, has proven what many of us have known all along: the Nintendo 64 is hands-down the superior system. The short tongue-in-cheek video (see below) actually makes a pretty compelling case as to...
