    Again - PSTV shoots out PSX, PSP and Vita games on 50" at 720p (apart from emulators)

    Hi all, this would be great on switch, infact any emulation would be killer on switch!

    I have a shield TV (2017) and have 1.4 PPSSPP on my shield running pretty damned well, however I cannot update it to one of the latest nightly builds from buildbot as it always says "apk is corrupt" any clues how to update it? Dolphin updates fine, I just need a pointer on this one please :)

    Can your PSTV play Zelda: Breath of the Wild?

    If the Wii U used some ARM cpu architecture then it would have been almost impossible to be backward compatible with Wii and GC, which all use PowerPC architecture. The Wii U runs natively those consoles (with CPU under-clocking hacks) thanks to PowerPC architecture.

    For the Switch, I doubt it would support Wii-U/Wii/GC games even in the future when it's completely hacked. The best we could hope for is some kind of emulator, or some ports of old games by developers themselves.

    Switch is even powerfull enough to launch Gamecube and wii games
    but not until hacked and at the condition that we can access the full HW capacity

    why even bother with PPSSPP on the switch when it run fine on any mid-range smartphone you most likely already have?

    Does the Switch actually run Android though?

    1. Physical buttons, no need for any third party controllers or stands or attachments.
    2. Big screen compared to average person smart phone and can be displayed on a TV with ease
    3. Hardware able to improve resolution with minimal frame drops or even none.
    Etc


    Runs Nintendo own operating system allowing games to be optimized for the hardware.

    Right, that Capcom helped them write. But is it based on Android at all?

    I would think not although the hardware would suggest android could be ported to the switch.

    In my personal opinion I believe it is running a very modded android as options menu etc... For the settings looks a lot like android and also flight mode is there I'm sure. They may of worked along side Google on the firmware on this since they worked a long side Nvidia

    It doesn't have any Android node afaik. Even if it's Android, it would been heavy modified to play different formats instead of classic .apk+.obb format.

    According to reswitched the Switch OS is hard fork of the 3DS OS:

    This thread is useless. You could literally make any suggestion you wish. The Switch isn't even hacked yet and I doubt it will be since there aren't many apps to find possible exploits from. Not anytime soon at least. Stop getting your hopes up.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    it's the same hardware but different OS
    i guess it won't be too hard, but you still have to port the libraries, dependencies and whatnot
