    As the title says. I know there is a Nvidia console coming out that seems like it can do the job. But i am curious if any one has seen any other systems elsewhere. ( And yes, i've used google)

    I am pretty curious about this too. I hate handhelds with perpetually exposed screens. Guess the GBA sp and DS spoiled me.

    the open pandora does it, but for about 10-15% of it's price a psp can do it and probably has better results.

    yeah pandora is not really practical for the cost. And a laptop cannot fit into your pocket.

    When I get the Nvidia Shield I might post videos of it running a PS1 and N64 emulator.

    I cannot fathom why the open pandora costs so much

    Well if you decide to wait if the 3ds ever gets a mod it will probably support ps1 games. Maybe?

    That Smart remark reminded me back in my college days when i told my friend that my laptop was more convenient because it was portable. Tony said his desk top was just as portable and the jerk made it a point to load up his desk top (With a CRT screen) in car and take it to class and then set it up. He did that for a week. My conclusion.... Portable yes but not practical. :glare:..... :lol:

    Is the 3DS even powerful enough to handle that kind of emulation?
