Hackers and the iQue Player homebrew community are celebrating this week after successfully running the iQue Depot operating system on Virtual Machine.
iQue Depot are kiosks that allow players to download and purchase games onto their iQue Player (Nintendo 64). They were introduced in mainland China in 2003 and have been discontinued in October 2016.
Under the collaborative work of members from iQueBrew, we got the iQue Depot OS up and running in a virtual machine.

Running iQue Depot on Virtual Machine (an emulator running operating system) is a huge milestone in preserving iQue Depot in video game history. Well done to those who have pulled it off as it took 16 years for this incredible feat.
