    I think anything 5th gen and before should run fine, as well as handhelds up to DS and PSP, since even my phone can run them. But seeing how dolphin is performing on android devices atm(and how PCSX2 is not coming to android), 6th gen consoles except dreamcast would be a dream.

    You're just naming stuff you want to happen. This is pointless.

    FYI: Simply having a similar CPU architecture does not mean it'll be any easier to emulate. Compare, for example, Dolphin on an amd64 PC vs. Dolphin on an arm64 phone.

    You are wrong there are two working (are currently developed) xbox emulators CXBX-Reloaded and XQEMU.

    Yeah, you're right. What I meant to say was that there are no usable ones...

    They are usable with some games.

    1) emulation of these? Probably not. Not jynxing anything, just most Nintendo consoles don't have enough power to emulate anything past GBA. Plus, drastic is closed sourced, so good luck getting the source legally. Afaik, drastic can't do dsi.

    2) ps1 seems plausible, since many lower end consoles can emulate it with little problems. Ps2 is entirley out of the question though, because it gets heavy affter that. PSP also Dosent seem too bad either (but please note I don't know too much on PSP)

    3) Xbox emulation is still in its baby steps. Probably not going to happen, especially since modern PC's have trouble accurately emulating it.


    And media playback is a definite, considering we have things on pretty much all consoles to play videos and music.

    Also note though, that just because 2 things use the same almost the same hardware, won't mean they are easy to develop for both

    PSP can run on Android phones, I don't think the Switch will be an issue.

    I know that, but I honestly don't know too much about psp hardware, so I can't speak for emulation on it

    Android phones use ARM, so does the Switch, we just need to wait for it to be hacked, assuming people are interested.

    People will most definitely be interested, it's developer nature to want to break things then make them better :ha:

    The hardware is almost on pair with the Nvidia Shield TV.
    Everything which runs on the Nvidia in terms of emulation could run just as well in the Switch.
    I heard even Gamecube/Wii games run at fullspeed on the Shield given proper settings.

    Of course, the same emulators used on Android won't be those for the Switch.
    The best we could hope for at the moment the Switch gets hacked, is a port of RetroArch and its ARM cores.
    Right off the back we should have Mupen64 and PSX Rearmed to test that gen of consoles, even PPSSPP.
    I'm not sure if RetroArch has cores for Dolphin or PCSX2 though.

    I dunno, kinda disappointed with how the Wii U homebrew scene ended up as of late, I don't want to be get too optimistic, heh.

    Well yeah, but a failing console wouldn't naturally have a lot of people owning it, so not many devs would care for it, slowing down progress, wouldn't you say? :D

    It's so much wasted potential, I'm honestly surprised we got RetroArch on the Wii U, as it runs pretty much perfectly (Snes, NES, GBA, arcade, etc), but we never will see PSX or N64 running, and are stuck with the buggy-as-hell N64/PSX Wii emulators. No sense in getting one's hopes up, really.
