DAILY MANIFESTO

And Boom, Jackass/Vita/SNES Prophecy Fulfilled

Posted on Wednesday, November 7 @ 02:14:15 Eastern by Heath_Hindman
Earlier this year, I wrote a joke piece about Vita homebrew intended as nothing more than harmless joking. I had a feeling people would eventually try to play Super Nintendo games on the Vita, but somewhere deep down, I wanted to believe it wouldn't happen. Today, I looked around the internet, and found this:



And this less recent gem:
 
And then I said this:

 


So is the SNES confirmed to be the greatest system of all time? With the release of every single new piece of game hardware comes a frantic scramble to mak it play Super Nintendo games as quickly as possible. If you really want to play those games for free, regardless of location, there's been PC-based emulation of these things for over a decade. If you really crave them portable, and their being "free" is another appealing factor, there's been a PSP-1000 for that, for like seven years now.

Will we ever truly be able to leave the past behind us, or will the ghosts of 16-bit haunt every new system for as long as we live. I have to admit, it's nice to see certain games still getting attention, and that if I were dead, I would also haunt everyone possible, but at the same time, this trend is disturbing.
