Kotaku also mentions they based the emulation off an open source Playstation emulator. While it’s great that open source emulators are actually being looked at and not sued to death like Sony used to try pull off (Like Bleem). It’s a bit of a bad look that the emulation is mediocre from the company who were the architects of the device they are trying to emulate. The reports on how bland and cold the menus are as well don’t sound good. The NES and SNES mini are rather stingy in terms of game count and Nintendo’s over-valuation of those games but the presentation and emulation quality on both is good, not perfect but better representations of those products.
Don’t get me wrong, it will sell but I can’t see it as being the “must have” items the SNES and NES mini were on release.
