SNES9x port for BlackBerry PlayBook: 16-bit ROM fun on the fire sale BlackBerry tablet

Who needs a PSP Phone when you could have a SNES-Book? Another good reason to fork out £170-odd for a BlackBerry PlayBook is that you you can now side-load this SNES9x emulator which’ll allow you to play old SNES classics like Super Mario RPG (pictured).

N4BB has published a short tutorial (see the source link) on how to install SNES9x on your PlayBook which we’re going to have a go at going as soon as we’ve got a spare hour or two.

You’ll need to have Development Mode turned on in your PlayBook (Settings > Security > Development Mode) and have Java IRE installed (Windows only) in order to side load the SNES9x .BAR file.

Once you’ve installed SNES9x all you’ll need to do is drag and drop any ROMs you’ve got on your PC.

Legal disclaimer: you should only install and run ROMs of games you already own. You do know that right?
