OUYA to potentially launch with support for NES, SNES, and N64 titles

As it turns out, the upcoming, open-source OUYA console could end up playing more than just Android games.

According to a post by OUYA forum administrator and owner Ed Krassenstein, a NES emulator known as EMUya was recently submitted to OUYA for review. It's likely that EMUya, along with a few additional Nintendo emulators (including the SuperGNES and Mupen64Plus for SNES and Nintendo 64, respectively) will be available at launch.

What this means for the console is that it's launch library just got a whole lot richer and more varied, particularly since the inclusion of these emulations appears, according to TechCrunch, to be entirely sanctioned by the OUYA organization (Mupen64Plus has appeared in the OUYA store).

With the launch line-up for the console not entirely clear, and the backer-launch just a scant few days away, this announcement feels like a breath of fresh air, even if the use of these platforms might not necessarily be legal.
