GameInvasion Podcast – Episode 7 – ROMs

In this episode, join Carl Wilhoyte of, Nick Hammer, and Nick Weber as we talk about why ROMs are actually an important part of gaming history, and their continual presence, despite their legal greyness, should be preserved.

We also talk about which publishers are doing it well and not so well, and what the future should be for ROMs and emulators alike. From Nintendo to Sega to Sony, publishers have wildly different stances on how they treat ROMs and their own console digital distribution of their gaming libraries. Listen and try to wrack your brain as host Carl Wilhoyte attempts to explain how to get an N64 game on the WiiU.
