    Nothing portable has a GC emulator.

    As for N64, look here.

    Well, I wouldn't say "ever", it'll be possible eventually. Not on the current systems though.

    Perhaps GC will be playable on vita or the next gen... But I know someone who has SSBM on his psp and is able to play it...

    Most likely not. We still don't know much about the Vita and GC emulation still isn't perfect on the PC, so I doubt it would be on any portable within this generation. Next...maybe.

    There was a way to...sort of "remote play" GC games on the PSP. It wasn't emulation.

    Yeah, it's most likely remote play with a PC.

    But wouldn't by that logic just be better to play it on the PC without a PSP to remote play with?

    What about GC emulation on a laptop?

    That's hardly portable. I mean, sure you can take it anywhere but it's uncomfortable, has 2-4 hours of battery life max, a little bulky, and laptops don't emulate GC/PS2 very well; it'd require a higher-spec Laptop to run something smoothly. Also, playing GC games with the keyboard is also very...tough, to say the least.

    Well to to be fair it is kinda meant to be played with a controller not a keyboard. Still its kinda asking the impossible for the PSP to be able to play GC games now asking the Vita to seems slightly more reasonable but I still kinda doubt it.

    I'm well aware, just explaining why it's not nearly as portable as say a handheld. Also, I highly doubt the PS Vita will be able to emulate GC games.

    I know still its the only alternative at the moment really and I don't think the Vita can emulate GC games but I don't really want it to either not because it can't but because GC doesn't really have games I want to play, still I hope it can do DC atleast.

    Vita won't be able to emulate GC games. Maybe just stupid 2D ones like Bust-a-Move, but nothing over that.

    Videos or it didn't happen. Good luck coding an emulator that translates IBM PowerPC processor (Gamecube) code to MIPS (PSP) processor code without a huge sacrifice in speed. Just saying...For starters, the PSP is approximately 333MHz, the Gamecube is 485MHz, they're two completely different processor architectures.
