    Could we emulate 3ds on the play station vita at full speed or at least ds emu at full speed?

    "We" can't even get 3DS games at full speed on a PC, so it running on a PSVita is highly unlikely.

    No, just no. The hardware on the Vita would be far to different to have a software layer like Wine, and it would lack the power to emulate what is needed.

    Actually... if all you're doing is looking at the "pile of specs"...

    The original 3DS' somewhat paltry sub-400mhz processor specs and sub-300mhz graphics processor could be emulated on the Vita's ARM.

    But it would take two decades of steady development, if you're talking an indie team. Less if you had professionals. A bit like emulating the PS2 on the PS3.

    And sideways. I would assume you would hold the Vita sideways.

    And that probably wouldn't be very pleasant
