All inclusive gaming device... THE PC!!
I'm guessing this should go in Gaming, but I'm talking more about morality/legality here.
The other night I was thinking about all the consoles, and by extension all the games, I've bought over the years and I quickly realised I have awesome games that I can't play due to space [No space for the console], broken components [Original NES/Megadrive has no cables] and general "I can't be bothered to set it up again for one game."
Technically, I have 5 copies of Ocarina of Time. [N64, Gamecube + 3DS] [Gamecube and 3DS count as 2 each. As they're both OoT and Master Quest.]
So I was thinking, would it be acceptable to get an emulator [I'm not asking for links] and play the games I own on my computer?
This includes any current and/or future games I may buy.
[This is part 2 of my multi-point plans for the Raspberry Pi. I neither have the space or the funds for a proper gaming PC.]
Since I've purchased the original disk/cartridge, am I allowed to do this legally?
This is coming from my want of a single console that doesn't upgrade in it's entirety, thus making older media obsolete, but one which upgrades components to enable full compatability. Maybe upgrading the core system every so often to set a higher base spec... [Yes, I know I just described a computer.]
