    I am wondering... Is the 3ds powerful enough to emulate n64 games (and maybe a few gamecube games?) I know I'm probably gonna get a lot of no it's not you effing ahole get your head outta ur a$$. But please, I just wanna know.

    We don't know. Possibly N64 games.

    Maybe, but it has to be hacked first. The answer cannot be yes or no atm.

    The PSP can barely emulate N64 well, and you expect the 3DS to be powerful enough? Shame on you.
    Also, the 3DS isn't even fully hacked yet. So even if it has the power, it's impossible to run homebrew on a 3DS, anyway.

    I am really going for a PS1 emulator which is more possible than a N64 emulator.

    Theorectically it's plasable to emulate a n64, snes, etc. But not a gamecube

    It's pure speculation at this point. I'm sure it might be possible.

    For the third time, we don't know the full capabilities of the 3DS. It hasn't been publicly hacked to the point where we can run custom code to do benchmarks.

    We can always hope.
    At this moment, that's all we've got.
