    Sort of like how some DS flash cards have a built-in CPU to enable GBA emulation, would it be possible for 3DS flash cards to have built-in CPUs to enable emulation of systems like the PS2 or Gamecube?

    If this was possible, there would still be a point to flash cards, even with the option of free SD card exploits.

    I'm really not so sure its inevitable.

    As for your question, I really doubt it would be able to emulate the PS2 or Gamecube. Heck, the regular DS/i had enough trouble emulating the GBA and SNES. A decent question would be if it would be able to emulate the N64 and PS1.

    It would look like a AR DSi only much bigger. About the size of the Tretta Scanner probably.

    You really want the 3DS's battery life to be even worse?

    Can high end android etc. devices even handle the GC and PS2 yet? If they can't the 3DS certainly won't manage it.

    You should change inevitably too eventual. :D
    Nintendo has crushed the hacker scene for now.
    The only way this will get hacked soon (soon being in the handhelds life cycle) is if there is a leak data or if nintendo accidentally makes a back door in the software.

    Dolphin works at 1 firmrate on the galaxy 3. They said the first phone to be able to run it at 28-30 would possible be the galaxy 4 and devices = to it's overall processing power.

    I honestly doubt it. But hey, its certainly possible. Point is, I'm not holding my breath.

    If it was feasible, don't you think somebody would have done it right now for the DS already?

    It might be possible, but the resulting flashcart would be gigantic and drain your battery faster than you can boot any emulated game.

    The resulting handheld would become so large you couldn't really call it a handheld anymore though. You'd also have to make sure the flashcart doesn't overheat.

    I'm starting to think BS on this. Its been 5 months and nothing more has been said about this, its starting to feel like that Crow3DS thing all over again. But hey, if its genuine and eventually gets released, I'll happily eat up my words and admit I was wrong.

    They DID do it for the DS, it's called DSTWO.
