Windows 10 - Nesbox Emulator With Xbox Controller

If you enjoy playing your old NES, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis and GameBoy Color/Advanced games, then the NesBox Emulator is just the thing for you.

In fact, it's just been re-released as 'Universal Emulator' and it now supports using an Xbox 360 Controller. Plus it will run on Windows Phone as well. It even says it support Holographics.

So download this and then follow the instructions to get some ROMs.  Pay attention though, you need to actually own the game to legally download the ROMs and use them.  Even though you can get them and run them, you are in violation of copyright laws.

Here's the link to Amazon to find a compatible controller.  On the wireless one, make sure you check the specs to see if includes the receiver as well.
