    This news shocked me when I first read it. It's a huge win for NVIDIA, IMO.

    "Official" emulator for old games.

    Finally, maybe some people are realising that there's a way to monetise older titles from previous generations.

    What do you mean 'finally'? Nintendo has been doing it for at least 10 years. The Wii not only supported GameCube games, it also had C64 games in its digital store. Wii U similarly has lots of old games available. And there's the NES/SNES Mini. Nintendo is the king of old games reuse.

    But it's not the only one. Microsoft now supports both Xbox 360 and original Xbox games on the Xbox One.

    So there's nothing new to the idea of 'official' emulation.

    Not that this is an 'official emulator'. It's separate games, not one app to rule them all. And Nintendo can perfectly well port them, so it's not guaranteed that this is emulation.
