For those who dont know their is a new retro device called the retrode.
This allows you to play SNES/SFC/Genesis/MasterDrive games with the original controller on your pc/mac/linux/wii(modded)/ps3(modded).
It treats your game as a thumb drive and you use an emulator to play it.
I know most are saying why... I can just download the rom. Well that is illegal. Others say well I also own the physical cartridge. That too is still illegal b/c its not a copy from the cartridge. It was from a third party vender.
I am big on gaming and this to me is the best way to do it legally.
