Why emulation based Back Compat falls short (Gaming)

At least MS is trying, as opposed to Nintendo shitting out actual garbage (or, you know, stealing their own stuff from ROM sites).

I think that one turned out to be a misunderstanding - Nintendo had hired one of the emulator programmers who made the iNES format in the first place, the iNES header can be found in the Animal Crossing NES ROMs in the original game on the N64, and he worked on that game. The header describes the needed hardware for the game to run, so it is actually needed by the emulator to function correctly.

As the gigaleak showed, Nintendo backs up everything.
