You might recall back in April we reported on the fact that Super Mario 64 was now playable via a browser using Super Mario 64: Browser Edition. Now, our friends over at Pure Xbox have discovered that this version is playable on an Xbox console, using the system's built-in Edge browser.
While the game does suffer from slight performance issues in Edge, the Xbox browser is due to be updated soon, and this might improve things.
Here's Pure Xbox's Daniel Hollis playing the game on his Series X:
Super Mario 64 originally released on the Nintendo 64 in 1996, and was recently included in the Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection on Switch. Recently, a mint and sealed copy of the game sold for an eye-watering $1.56 million at auction.
Do you think Nintendo will take steps to block this interesting little loophole? Or is this the kind of hack that is beyond the Japanese company's control? Let us know your predictions – and if you've got Super Mario 64 running on your Xbox – by posting a comment below.
If you have the Playstation TV then you have the trifecta
Nintendo will not happy to see that case.
I'd consider buying one to test how well Browsercade.com runs on it, except for the fact that (just like the PS5) they're still almost impossible to get hold of.
In before our resident legal eagles swoop in and mutter about theft and how we should all get up and try and make something before we steal it in this way….
The fact most of us have bought this game multiple times is besides the point we are still the worst scum of the universe for playing it in a browser
I wonder if this works on my Xbox One.
I hope I wasn't the only one that read Bowser instead of browser when I first saw it
i guess its time for Nintendo and Microsoft to partner up to stop this kind of stuff.
It also works on the Atari VCS as well.
@stevenw45 There is really nothing that can be done outside of Microsoft removing the browser from Xbox or Nintendo getting this site shut down.
@Caryslan I don't think they should, but I don't see why MS couldn't block the site.
@CactusMan yeah, in a century
Microsoft should block the site. or better yet, i think we have the option to do so ourselves; but unfortunately we won't.
either way, i prefer to play Super Mario 64 on a Nintendo system. its just not the same anywhere else.
@stevenw45 It doesn't hurt you if the site stays up though.
I'm confused.. I literally did this months ago when the original article was posted.
Edit: Yeah, comment #20 in the original article.
Unlike like people whole steal games
I'll play this on my n64 or ds or my wii or my wii u or my switch
Can't believe a sealed copy of 3d all stars sold for that much, shouldn't have played mine and kept it sealed
@stevenw45 You have no right to demand that people play the same way as you, that's the problem with the world today. I have purchased Super Mario 64 on 3 occasions and as I own the original cartridge as far as I'm concerned I own the content and have a right to use it as I choose.
what's with the assumption of you thinking that i am making that demand? I'm sorry, if it sounded as though i am doing so.
@Anti-Matter Oh boo hoo, that's their fault for not putting N64 on the NSO.
Just a reminder that you can play PS1/2 games on your Xbox but not on your PS4/5
Some of the ways clever people put our memories onto things they have no right being on should be applauded, but the novelty soon wears off. At least its risk free.
Technology is giving us nearly unlimited Possibilities, hindered by Chains of mortal Necessities of the Past.
