Nintendo kills Snes9x

May 22nd, 1999 by Crusader

Slashdot is reporting that Nintendo has switched into heavy-handed-evil-corporation mode and managed to cause the shutdown of Snes9x.com, the home of the open-source Super NES emulator. Snes9x developer Jerremy Koot states that Nintendo has made the claim that “emulators are illegal” and have posted a legal (bleagh) FAQ at http://www.nintendo.com/corp/faqs/legal.html.

UPDATE (1999-05-23 10:38:14)
Dave’s Video Game Classics is reporting that Snes9x has found a new host (no word yet on who it is) and will be returning shortly.
