I think that since the OS "Maemo 5" of Nokia's N900 is based on Linux it is very likely to see some emulators ported to it.
lol my nephew has that phone
I knew it >:[. Nokia is evil
I do not see how that works. Are they sueing because it is powerful enough to emulate the consoles because they should then sue dozens of other companies. As far as I know, Nokia ould not have had any involvement in this project.
I knew it >:[. Nintendo is evil
emulation has been on the pc for years so are they going to sue.....who made the pc?
All those concolses are out of production, so Ninty gets advertisement for their brand!!!
The problem is that in this case Nokia advertises the N900 to be a good device for running emulators. Nintendo has a point.
But its preventing sales of those games on the vc. Free advertising isnt worth not selling what your advertising. duh.
Cool, gotta keep an eye out on this phone
Would love to play some old but gold games on the road on my cellphone.
Most emulators on the PC aren't made by large corporate bodies and rather homebrew enthusiasts. Whereas from what I understand is Nokia is using the emulation support for marketing it's product.
/Thread, Maikel wins.
lol so they actually advertise it can run emulators? are they fucking brain dead stupid!!??
phone looks too expensive to even consider piracy on it
That sure is a sexy phone. It costs 599€ though, so I think I'm pretty sure that I'll never own one.
But Nintendo pisses me off for no reason actually, since they have a point. Or it may be that I'm a Nokia fanboy.
definitely explained by maikel, i must say nintendo really worries about piracy and all
Nintendo should tell Nokia to stop the distribution of emulations because Nokia has nothing to do with the emulation. It's made by third party.
Almost all modern smartphones can do this, I'm using HTC Magic atm and I can emulate too, it's just downloading an emulator from the Android Market and play, (for smartphone noobs: Android is a competitor of the iPhone => Android Market is the same as App Store) yet I don't see Nintendo sueing here.
Oh come on Nintendo, you aren't even making a dime off the retro games on any phone and the GBC and GBA games aren't even netting you a profit anymore, the least you can do is allow the use of emulators on phones to preserve these gems for everyone to play. It's better than having your games eventually fading from history.
