Windows XP…For Your Famicom! (Not Really)

windows xp famicom

Perhaps from the creators of the famous Windows 98 for Famicom (or perhaps not) comes this absolute pirate masterpiece - a bizarre Famicom bootleg/mutlicart made to look, navigate, and feel like Windows XP! I have to say, from the pictures included in the auction, the pirates went to pretty extraordinary lengths - not only does it have a faux OS and file tree like the Win98 pirate, it actually has some games built in. To my knowledge, this hasn't been dumped yet, unlike its Win98 (and unrelated Windows 2000) counterpart. Yes, it's a bootleg, but it was too funny to pass up.

  1. … Just to check. Did you guys receive my submission? I wouldn’t ask if it weren’t for the fact that Link mention there’s loads of issues with the site ATM.
