Zinc is not a specific gaming term or console. It is important to clarify that Zinc is a type of software, specifically an emulator, used to run certain arcade games on personal computers. Emulators like Zinc allow players to play arcade games from various hardware platforms on their PC.

The Zinc emulator was developed by the French software company Fandango, and its primary focus was on emulating arcade systems that used Sony ZN-1 and ZN-2 hardware. These arcade systems were used in a limited number of games from Capcom and other game developers.

Using the Zinc emulator, players could run specific arcade games on their computers without the need for the original arcade hardware. Emulators like Zinc have played a significant role in preserving arcade game history and allowing players to experience classic arcade titles on modern platforms.
