Nintendo Goes After Rom Sites/HUGE Lawsuit Threat:

I agree with this…

…Nintendo needs to recognize there is an existing, enthusiastic market for ROMs, and open up it’s own ROM website, to sell it’s old games…It’s not as if they couldn’t create their own console emulator.

…So, why don’t they get in on this?…It would remove the excuse, that the games aren’t available any other way.

Heck…there would be no physical product…so, they could offer their library of old games cheap.

If they sold their ROMs for $1 to $5 a piece…I’ll bet they’d make some pretty good money…Of course, they’d probably price games from the previous console or two higher…maybe, $10 to $15 a piece…if they were the huge titles, anyway…

…But, still…they should look into getting into this…There is a serious market there.
