Windows Phone 7 NES Emulator Banned from Market

A new NES emulator for the Windows Phone 7 platform has been created. However, it wasn’t approved for the Marketplace for the reason quoted below…

If you post a game/image/source that uses unauthorized intellectual property, we will delete it immediately. This includes technologies that are clearly intended to enable unauthorized use of intellectual property, such as game console emulators.

The WP7 NES emulator was created by Mat Bettcher who managed to port code from the SharpNES and My NES projects over to the WP7 platform.

Rather than just accepting that MS won’t allow it in, Mat is looking for community support to sway Microsoft’s decision to allow it in to the Market.

The video below shows the emulator running.
