Nintendo 64 Emulator Removed From Xbox One

Emulators are very popular in our day of gaming age. It helps gamers play titles on consoles they couldn’t play for one reason or another. Yet, they’re questionable in legality at times. This goes double when an emulator of a certain console, arrives on a rival console.

A Nintendo 64 Emulator appeared on the Xbox One over the weekend. Titled Win64e10, it was on sale for $10, and promised to play ROM’s like Super Mario 64 and other Nintendo 64 games. You can see the full description for the emulator below.

Despite it actually being legal, Microsoft has pulled the app, and announced that though it is still compatible, it should only be used on PC’s, tablets, and other approved devices. Ironically, this isn’t the first emulator to get taken down off of the Xbox One. As one for the NES, Sega Genesis, and more have been taken down over the past few weeks.
