    I'm assuming many will have seen this, for those who haven't it's basically a massive, free emulation in a browser archive - plenty of 2600, 7800, Colecovision, Odyssey, Sega SG-1000, etc games to be played.

    Well worth a visit! Oh and it appears to be able to detect controllers which is a nice touch.

    The Console Living Room is a subsection of the The Internet Archive Software Collection

    Internet archive aren't exactly known for following legalities to the letter.
    Apart from lawyers salary's, how much worth to old games really generate?

    Perfect 1to1 emulation is all well and good (and a what point does the original hardware become better?). But isn't playing the games and making them available to the largest possible audience more important? I know it is to me.
