    I have been using retro arch frontend and snes next emulator. These kind of suck. I think both nearest and linear filter don't look great and the controls are laggy. Plus the front end design of retro arch blows. Compared to emulators on the wii, they kind of not good. Any better options?

    You're comparing a console that's blown wide open with software only and your avarage joe could make homebrew for, to a console that's only hacked with hardware, losing every bit of Live functionality....

    Yeh the homebrew scene on the 360 never came off off the ground much.
    You're far better off with a Wii when it comes to emulation purposes.

    I don't like the frontend in RetroArch either. But don't forget there's RetroArch on the Wii too and I'm guessing the frontend is much the same on that as well. As with the Wii there are probably other options for emulation, have a look around. I know very little about emulation on the 360 but RetroArch is rather new and the 360 has been hacked for ages so there must be other options available.

    You got quite a few emulators out there, SNES360, FBANext, XeBoyAdvance n such.
    Mupen64-360 is only launched from XeLL tho.

    But in all honesty, the Wii wins hands down when it comes to emulation.

    True points everyone. Maybe I was bein too harsh those guys do things I couldn't do just getting an emulator working. I was trying to get everything on the xbox and was disappointed by the emulators. I'll stick to the wii for emulators.

    Eh, 360's emulators are more of a quick thing to do ;p

    I lack programming skills, otherwise I'd meself port over a good emu tho.

    The emu's work but aren't a match for the Wii.

    The Original xbox however had far more emulators.

    Their better on the Wii and Xbox yep.
    360's homebrew is just meh.
    It's such a shame that there's so few hacked.

    The only real purpose for JTAG back then was for kids to host COD games >_>
    Even today, search the web and youtube.
    All of the vids/ads are of JTAGs/RGH with COD games.

    As far as emulation goes, RetroArch is one of the best for the Wii if you go that route (better than GX because there's no frame skipping BS, so games run full speed on NES, Megadrive/Genesis, Snes. Not to mention you don't have the weird menu audio issue when entering/exiting the menu) :PComplaints about the GUI be damned :D

    Mupen64-360 must be launched from XeLL.
    It's compatibility is meh.
    It plays some games well but it doesn't hold up to the Xbox's Surreal64 or the Wii's Wii64/VC emulator.

    PS3 on emu's......
    Honestly no idea but dun expect much out of it tho.
    They did manage to hack around sony's PS2 emu and make it run with PS2 ISO's on Cobra hybrid firmwares.
    Other then that.
    I think the same/slightly better then the 360 ;p

    GC emulation is non existent on the 360.
    Snes360 is pretty okay when it comes to compatibility tho.
