    when i asked about a gba emulator on ds before someone told me that nobody want to do it because one can buy EZ flash 3 in 1 to play gba games.Now that DSi is released,which doesn't have slot 2,will someone consider to make a gba emulator for DSi?If anyone does, will it be compatible with DS Lite?

    Probably not, if someone ever makes a gba emu for the DSi, it will likely NEED the DSi's extra power to manage it, the DS will not be anywhere near powerful enough to run something as complex.

    That depends on the system's design.

    If the only part removed was the physical slot, which most likely is the case since DS games require some GBA hardware to function, there might be some kind of exploit or whatever.

    There's no NEED for digital camera nor wider screen to make a GBA emulator.

    Extra power isn't camera or wider screens.

    may be it could be possible to the increased ram due to speculations from opera browser (my opinion)
    Still i doubt i can happen since no one is ready or sure

    DSi doesn't has any "estra juice". From what i've heard it only has extra ram. The processors are still the good ol' ARM.

    admitedly, the extra RAM might help in creating a GBA emulator for the loading of large ROMS, but the DSi is not any faster or more powerful than the DS Lite

    I MIGHT get a DSi, or a PSP. I currently have a DSLite.

    PSP is in fact cheaper than a DSi.
