This category contains emulators that the target's original manufacturer either developed or endorsed. Unlike standard emulators, these are usually not made as a free download by the manufacturer since their purpose varies;

  • They may have been developed for official downloadable re-releases (such as Virtual Console and PlayStation Network), and often support far more ROMs than what was bundled with them.
  • They may have been used during development as a means to test code but got leaked to the public (such as Ensata, Dolphin, etc), and only support what was needed by the game at the time.
  • They may have been developed as an easter egg, compilation, or unlockable minigame inside another video game, and the odds of it supporting other ROMs is less likely.
