CVG said:Emulation is a grey issue, but so long as you own the original game you're entitled to emulate it. If you still have copies of Donkey Kong Country and Super Mario World in your SNES collection you can run those ROMS in the PS3 port of the famous SNES9X emulator. The emulators themselves aren't illegal.
It's a bit semantic, but that's technically not correct. You're entitled to emulate *your own copy* of the game you own. Technically, that means you're obliged to dump it yourself.
