Nokia Busted Promoting Nintendo Emulators In Advertisement

Hey, Nokia: just because your own experiment with handheld gaming went pear-shaped doesn't mean you can go advertising other people's games on your phones.


Nintendo are currently investigating a commercial for Nokia's N900 smartphone, which reportedly showed the phone happily playing a bunch of retro emulated games for the NES, SNES Game Boy and Spectrum, among others. The clear insinuation being that any ROMs involved in playing these games would, in 99% of cases, be illegally downloaded.

We'd point you towards the video, but it's since been pulled.
