DID YOU KNOW?
The Nintendo Game Boy sold out within its first two-week run? When it came to the United States, it sold 40,000 units that very same day. It wasn't long after the gaming industry moved to 3D consoles. Sony's PlayStation 2, Microsoft's Xbox, and Nintendo's Game Cube were these consoles. The Game Boy fell into obscurity. That is until emulation arrived and became popular. “Emulation” is a dirty word in the game development industry. This is because of is piracy-adjacent nature. Emulators mimic proprietary hardware. If you have a game’s code, you can play games on any computer. This is without making any hardware modifications.
The same thing happened for consoles that came after the Game Boy. Game consoles like the NES, Sega Genesis, and even the PlayStation all faced the same fate. Emulators helped revive these consoles and bring new-found interest in them. So much so that classic editions of them were being made and sold to market. Game enthusiasts and those seeking a sense of nostalgia were the main buyers of these. As great as these retro game consoles were, not everyone bought into the whole idea. Some still prefer a more mobile solution to their gaming needs. This is where emulators come into play, which allows anyone to load up their favorite ROM on any device and start playing. Take a PlayStation emulator for Android for example. Install it on your phone, load up your ROM, and you'll be up and running in no time. Performance varied and depends on how capable the hardware that it is running on is. It did provide users with the ability to play their ROMs on the go regardless. That, for some, was good enough.
