    Short answer to save you from sarcastic comments and flames. No. The DS will never be capable of running any PS1, N64 and anything after that. Due to the DS's low hardware features, in comparison between the PSP and DS, the PSP has a faster 333 MHz Cpu and 64 MB RAM (Slim lite version) which is alot faster than the DS's 67 MHz and 33 MHz processors with 4 MB ram.

    Of course! Just take a pair of sharp scissors and cut the disc to the size required to fit in the MicroSD slot!

    lol i read the title and had to read the replies lol

    but seriously stop lying to him - the DS with 2 R4's can play PS3 games!
    however you will need a HDMI cable (you can get these relatively cheap)

    Resident Evil Deadly Silence... DS remake of an originally PSX game. Therefore, PSX game on the DS.

    ...I was just being a smartass.

    No. DS is not powerful enough to emulate Playstation.

    Playstation games have to be ported by professionals with access to full source code, which rarely occurs.

    Resident Evil is one of the very few. The upcoming Chrono Trigger DS will be another.

    Okay, to get PSX games working on your DS, follow these steps:


    1. Buy a DS-X flashcart
    2. Buy a 8GB MircoSDHC card
    3. Once both are obtained, download/burn the ISO to the game of your choice.
    4. Force the DS-X card into the slot two of your NDS.
    5. Rip the top screen from the hinges
    6. Tell your DS that you will never give it up, let it down, run around and desert it, make it cry, say goodbye, tell a lie, or hurt it.
    7. shove a tri-wing screwdriver into the bottom screen
    8. ???
    9. PROFIT!!!!


    It also works with STEAM games such as HALF-LIFE 2, TEAM FORTRESS 2, COUNTER STRIKE: SOURCE, etc.


    enjoy.
