A while ago we featured here a Gazelle based private gaming tracker named JuicyBitz. Unlike most specialized games trackers, JuicyBitz focused on ROMS, emulators and retro games. It was a good niche tracker but unfortunately the site is not online anymore. For fans of ROMS and emulation who are looking for similar BitTorrent trackers with ROMS and emulation, we present you Emuparadise. Emuparadise is a tracker full of ROMS and emulators for many different consoles such as Playstation 1/2, PSP, XBOX . With the help of this tracker, you should be able to play some of your favorite console games on the PC.
Unlike JuicyBitz, Emuparadise is a pretty old. With more than 16000 users and over 1200 active torrents, this is a well established tracker in the BitTorrent scene (note that the number of torrents could have been a lot bigger – they seem to delete inactive torrents quickly). As for the content, there are a lot of ROMS and emulators (an emulator is a software which emulates the console environment on the PC and hence allows console games to be played on the PC. A ROM is similar to an ‘image’ of a game cartridge or a DVD/CD if it’s a modern system. In short, you load the ROMs into the PC using an emulator). See the screenshot below to get a better understanding of the content available:
Public registrations for Emuparadise are currently open. If you are interested in joining a tracker which’s main focus lies on old school console games and ROMs, then go ahead and get yourself an account.
