Exactly and just because you can play these in a emulator does not mean they are 'free', I believe retro games should be preserved given that original hardware and media will die out and Roms serve that purpose until the industry wakes up and gives us a proper legal channel for this stuff on current platforms, however I also support publishers who allow me to buy said retro content, it is after all their IP at the end of the day and they can do with it what they wish.
I don't think the industry would collapse from people refusing to buy ancient games for relatively high prices. You literally can get SF V for £6 and SF IV for £7. Do we really think a bunch of retro games are worth more than more recent titles?
What emulator would you recommend? I'm going to probably buy this on PS4 but wouldn't mind comparing against the roms on PC
It's a shame they used version 1 ports, instead of the final builds. What was that about? I'm not sure if my madcatz sf V stick for ps4 will work on my PC.
I can remember having to pay £60 for street fighter 2 for the Mega drive. If you told me you could get arcade perfect ports for street fighter 2 and everything else on this collection for £14, I would have been amazed.
