Microsoft began to eradicate game emulators from the Windows Store

The controversy over the legality and ethics of emulation of game consoles do not stop until now. The copyright laws are constantly changing and it is hard to answer unequivocally whether the activities of the creators of the emulators are illegal or not. This topic interested Microsoft. Still game emulators have been in the so-called legal “grey area” and freely distributed through the Windows store. But things have changed.

At the end of last month, Microsoft has made changes to the policy of his store, prohibiting the publication of emulators of game consoles. Then, not all paid attention to it, but after the user NeoGAF discovered the removal of the Universal Emulator (formerly known as NESBox), the gaming community has sounded the alarm. It is expected that in the near future from the Windows store will disappear and other emulators.

There is speculation that this is due to the upcoming release of the update Creators Update and the subsequent unification of Windows and Xbox Store. And if you argue about the legality of emulators for a long time, then deny them any harm for the publisher and platformtarget difficult. To recall the recent news about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
