    N64 is already been discussed extensively and we all have come to the conclusion that the DS is too underpowered
    Those people who suggested it were already getting their hopes up

    AND YOUR ASKING ABOUT PS?!?!

    thats not outrage or a flame btw, just suprise

    Just because a game has good graphics, doesn't mean that it can emulate another system. Rule of thumb for emulation, is that the system you are using to emulate another must be much more powerful. Look at it this way; The NES is only a few MHz, yet we've almost achieved perfected emulation on a 2GHz machine.

    PlayStation on the DS will not happen. And if it does, it'll go 1FPS, soundless, and play a Hello World demo. If you really want to play PSX on a handheld, play it on PSP.

    See that hole in your wall?
    Mario 64 DS works on DS because it was specifically recoded by Nintendo to use the DS hardware properly.
