The Internet Archive has added a section of classic consoles to its archive section, along with a selection of classic games playable in your browser.
This isn't the first time that you've been able to play classic games thanks to the Internet Archive, but the focus on consoles is interesting, especially given the IP involved.
I do wonder how they've got around, for example, offering the Atari 2600 version of Pac-Man when Namco's quite protective of its rights in this regard.
In the meantime, the Internet Archive Console Living Room awaits, with games playable in-browser through the JMESS emulator.
As a big retro gaming fan, I'm quite happy about all of this, although I'm rather surprised to note that they haven't chosen to archive Combat for the 2600. Perhaps there are already enough copies out there.
