Emulators are programs that play ROMs. ROMs are video games contained into a single file. ROMs also make it easy to play import games from retro systems such as Japanese titles that were not released in the North America or Europe.

Play games from Nintendo (NES), Super Nintendo (SNES), Nintendo 64 (N64), Game Boy Advance (GBA), Mega Drive/Sega Genesis, TurboGrafx-16, Atari, MAME Arcade and other game consoles. Additionally, the Sega CD and Neo-Geo CD emulators are able to load their original game discs directly from the Xbox disc drive.
