    for portable emulation.

    I mean,
    nvidia gpu.
    many different controller adaptions/configurations.
    awesome pick up and go of the switch. adapted to emulators alike!!!! would be so cool.

    nuff said. this thing will probably run n64/psx. without even trying. and it will all be super easy to port too. if the information gathered is to be correct anyway.


    in a perfect world i'd love for homebrew and emulators to come out. but for once, for developers to unitedly say: "fuck pirates!" and not make any backup loaders whatsoever. But I know that's just wishful thinking. I just really want Nintendo to Succeed with the Switch. I love this system.


    And modded with emulators... this thing will be SO MUCH FUN.

    Well i mean for ppsspp, still has SOME issues with it, one in particular was playing that hitman reborn game. The character on the right side would have the control inputs reversed so the Cpu wouldn't fight properly :P

    You're comparing a 13 year old device with ~20 year old technology against a brand new device with ~2 year old technology.
    No fucking shit it's better.

    Somebody missed the point hard.
    lol
    -It's obvious the Switch is newer technology. I'm talking about we finally have a system that can match. or even do better in a portable atmosphere besides the psp. -

    sooooo were you around when the psp was booming or nah?

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    It can run gc too. It's pretty much confirmed for Vc. Also, they tested dolphin on the shield and it worked flawlessly so

    Im assuming no. Because if you were. you'd understand what this means for the potential "scene" of the Switch. The psp bar none had the best scene ever for a console. and why is that? because hacked the psp was a damn powerhouse.

    The Switch has the ability to easily eclipse it. and that's exciting.

    And if Nintendo published official GC VC,you can even inject your own games and will run even better

    citation needed! - lol i'm kidding. but is dolphin confirmed to run "flawlessly" on shield?

    Also vc gc is still a rumor. until proven otherwise.



    oh? I thought you were being a snarky bastard. - my mistake. moving on! lol

    this is guaranteed. as nintendo will most likely make their own emulator. or reuse the code from the wii one.

    the wii wasn't hardware emulation was it? I don't think so. not sure.

    Why do people make these threads every time a POC of a hack is shown for a new or currently not hacked device? This is the kind of crap that clutters gbatemp along side; shit posting, asking the same questions over and over, reporting false news, necro-posting, and much more that isn't needed here.

    The Wii isn't hardware emulation, nor is it emulation at all tbh. The Wii is literally a more powerful GameCube so it can natively run GC games.

    It's closer to virtualization than emulation.

    It really does run natively, the Wii has all the GC syscalls IIRC.

    Again, it's closer/akin to VM vs an emulator; emulation with 100% compatibility would be impossible.

    That's why I said it wasn't an emulator. Though what you just said is equivalent to saying that Windows 10 uses a VM to run Windows 7 programs. What happens on the Wii with GC games is that the Wii just is able to run GC games directly, no emulation, no virtualization or anything like that. It just plainly runs it. If you want something closer to a VM on a Nintendo console, you can take a look at the vWii from the Wii U though.
