Recently Nintendo has been taking down some sites that allow people to play and download their older games. One site for example is GBA4IOS they can no longer let a working emulator be downloaded. Also a few other sites emulators no longer work as well, along with their roms. Nintendo, like most companies want their money if people are playing their games.
A few smaller sites have been taken down completely as of right now, but I’m sure the people who really care about, having emulators and roms out for the public will keep them open. This post is just for some people who wanted to play the games from when they were younger. But now they can’t.
Nintendo doesn’t make any profit off of rom downloads, yet? maybe in the future Nintendo will actually do this, we can only hope.
