    Hey I was just wondering what emulators you can get for ipad2, I know theirs a psx, n64 and some previous consoles on their but what about some newer ones? Dream cast, ds, psp? (I hope their is a dream cast emulator, I loved the spawn game on that) probably a bit of wishful thinking on my part expecialy with a Psp emulator but google wasn't much help with this so I thought I'd ask you guys.

    Sorry but iPad doesn't have anything iPhones didn't have. It's nice to dream but those dreams are way in the clouds. Theres no chance of a DS emulator for iPhone till at least iPhone 7 but a PSP emulator? The phone won't have enough power for it till iPhone 8 or 9. Plus it takes time to develop the emulators Do you have any idea how difficult emulation is? If I remember correctly, the device needs to have 7 times the power and RAM of the device being implemented for a minimum requirement of emulation. That's emulators with no special features. No RTS, no cheats, no multiple, save files, just emulation.

    As a rule of thumb don't expect current or last gen devices running even on high-end current hardware. At least that's what I've been taught. :O
