    Well they already confirmed 3D video, plus we've seen screenshots of how well the games look. Of course the memory will get an upgrade.

    The DS has dedicated video memory as well. The 3DS will just have a lot more of it, as well as more primary RAM.

    Emulators will be hard. I think it'll probably be as hard as wii or ps2...

    why should be emulators hard?

    Provided the 3DS has a separate GPU aside from a dedicated memory,
    programmers can allocate memory to each block of memory and make it to be handled by each CPU(the main and the graphics)..
    Easier buffer handles, quicker rom access and decode.. It will be a programming heaven (provided it can be accessed fully)..
