PlayStation Classic uses emulator once used for video game piracy

The PlayStation Classic was Sony's answer to Nintendo's retro consoles. While the move was hardly a surprise, what helped its conception certainly was. A review made by Kotaku recently discovered the retro console ran its collection of PSONE games using a derivative of the original PCSX emulator for the PC, as reported by TechCrunch. Emulators are basically software made to run games made for a specific platform on a different platform, particularly on the PC. The discovery made by Kotaku came with a bit of irony that the software once used to run pirated copies of the PSONE was chosen by Sony itself to run the PlayStation Classic. Apparently the ARM port of the PCSX emulato...Keep on reading: PlayStation Classic uses emulator once used for video game piracy.....»»

Let’s a not go! Nintendo wins Japan court battle over Mario street karting

TOKYO, Japan --- Nintendo said Thursday it has won a court battle against a popular go-kart operator that allows drivers to dress up as Super Mario and other game characters to zip through the streets of Japan. Visitors to Tokyo and other major Japanese cities are often stunned to see convoys of karts driven by people--- usually tourists --- dressed up as Mario, Yoshi, Princess Peach and other popular Nintendo characters buzzing around busy streets. Unlike many countries, Japan has no ban on people driving go-karts on public roads. But the court ruling looks set to bring such Nintendo-themed antics screaching to a halt. The video gaming giant said the ruling blocks the "MariC...Keep on reading: Let’s a not go! Nintendo wins Japan court battle over Mario street karting.....»»

Classics of the well-loved "Final Fantasy" game series by Square Enix will become available for the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One by next year.
