    Generally not much better than the Virtual Console's offerings, injecting ROMs into wad files might yield better results, there hasn't been an update to Wii 64 in quite a while. There is a branch called Not 64 that has improvements, but even then, N64 emulators on Wii are a mixed bag.

    That sucks, the 360 is a pretty powerful machine. It would be nice to see some high compatibly emulators.

    I honestly had high hopes with the release of the RGH.
    That more homebrew would be made.
    RGLoader got released and we're at a point that we can run Devkit kernels on it.
    There have been some updates to emulators and PPSSPP has been ported.
    But it's pretty safe to say that it's dissapointing in comparison to the Wii.
    Props to everyone who is working on 360 homebrew tho!

    Welp, guess that scumbag kids are far to busy selling modded COD lobbies instead of actually using it for other purposes.

    I haven't kept up with the Wii since 2009.
    Even the cIOSses I use are from 2009 ;p
    So is most, if not all of the homebrew.

    I can't help you with that unfortunately.

    bringing this back from the dead but I really feel like this should be capable of even wii emulation...

    All emulaters suck. Get a Wii for emulating, there's a ton of great ones.

    Portable emulation yes, general emulation is Wii and Xbox, Wii beats Xbox cause of the ease to hack it.

    Don't even think about 360 for emulation. It's all about original XBOX. No system before or since (or probably ever again) comes close.

    I set my XBOX's up with a 500gb SATA HDD, 30+ arcade/console/portable emus with emuxtras (screenshots and preview videos for most systems), all in one system, and with plenty of room left for retail games

    Wii.
    Pretty much cause of ease of hacking.
    As for portability, PSP, like I said above.

    Wii even doesn't come close to XBOX. I mod XBOX'S and found them easier to mod than a Wii. Plus the XBOX S-controller I believe is better than even a Wii Classic Controller (though I have to admit that adapters to connect SNES controllers to a Wii is pretty sweet).

    The only real advantage Wii emulation has vs XBOX emulation is 240p support, which on a CRT looks almost identical to a real system. I am sure there are other advantages on Wii, but that's another topic.

    All you need is an SD for the Wii, for Xbox, you need a exploitable game + save and FTP access or do it risky and hotswap it.

    Wii is far easier to hack (ModMii almost automates it etc) then Xbox (few button presses)

    On wii vs xbox ease of hacking, I agree the wii is easier and I could do it when braindead and drunk, I might want to avoid being drunk if I am already braindead and hacking an original xbox.

    I hack original xbox's with ease and can do them my sleep, and in 5 minutes (I have 007 plus the special save). Original XBOX has over 30+ console/arcade emus, and XBMC.

    To each their own I guess

    Got all 3 exploitable games so that's no issue.

    Original xbox needs its harddisk changed as well if you really want to make use of it.
    Wii can make use of USB drives, Xbox can't.

    Ya all of the 360 emulators are pretty terrible. The xbox scene died plus developers kept wanting to use the "legal" sdk to program homebrew which just added to the terribleness of the emulators. They should have just stuck with the XDK and then we could have had easy to launch and fairly good running emulators.
