The newly released Nintendo NES Classic shipped with 30 classic old games baked into its retrotacular ROMs. It has now been hacked to be able to play any old game ROM you happen to be able to get your hands on, though of course you will have to make space as the storage capacity of this console is quite limited. There are several caveats to this of course, ROMs are called read only for a reason and rooting around in them can lead to unintended and possibly permanent consequences. There is also the source of your ROM to be considered, they tend to come from sources which could be considered slightly less than legitimate. If you are still interested take a peek over at The Inquirer.
"It was Russian retro gaming community GBX and a modder called Madmonkey that cracked the rebooted console, and it was Reddit users that seized on the opportunity, to give the hack a go."
