    I remember that Ozmodchips previously reported a DSi "Channels" Exploit, and yet nothing ever surfaced from that.

    What's more is that although the 3DS top screen is fully light, software run in DS mode with a totally black image on the top-screen may simply appear to fill the whole top screen. This is because the black DS-aspect ratio image becomes indistinguishable from the black borders. You would need to see an image on both the top and bottom screens that is not just solid black to dismiss the possibilities that it is just an image viewed on 3DS Photo or an NDS homebrew application.

    There is also the fact that the 3D light indicator is not lit, which is another possible indicator that this is an NDS homebrew, although many 3DS softwares also disable this 3D light as they lack a 3D mode (Pokémon Dream Radar, Cubic Ninja, Virtual Console software in upscaled mode)

    So for the time being I remain a skeptic.

    I don't think this is a fake but I also don't think anything noteworthy will ever come out of this. And if I'm wrong I promise not to use this hack for piracy.

    I want backup loading the most. Because it's alot more convenient to have all by games play from a single cart, than to tote around a game case with all my DS games and look like a tool. My DS, PSP, and GBA all use some sort of memory card or flash cart, as you can see in my sig below. My 3DS now needs one for 3DS games.

    Whilst I would certainly enjoy that, what I really want is for the 3DS system to be capable of emulating everything you would want it to.

    It could easily do Megadrive and SNES titles, it has the processing power, ideal screen resolution and button layout to make it all work beautifully. I'm frankly annoyed that Nintendo themselves haven't snapped up this opportunity.

    I would prefer to be able to load 3DS roms from SD, drop them into the 3DS main menu, and load them there. Similar to the eShop bought games.

    That would be cool. I like that idea.

    I guess I need to make sure I do not update my 3DS.

    I honestly can't wait until a 3ds version of dslinux. Backtrack on the 3ds anyone?

    I'm mostly interested in unscaled NeoGeo, CPS2, PSX, and SNES emulation. Unfortunately if we want translation patches piracy will have to be possible as well.

    The specs are good enough to handle it maybe. It depends if the hack has the host specs or not. I imagine PSX would be difficult to reconfigure.

    True that. Damn I wish for a Bravely Default translation patch right about now. XD

    Maybe now e can find emulator that really runs snes/gens and gameboy color emulators, due the better ran and cpu of 3ds, also we can expect the new .DPG videos with higher btitraTe and full windowed and high fps support,or .3PG, dpd version of 3d movies, or better of that, MAYBE MOONLIGHT CAN AT LEAST MAKE A NEW MOONSHELL WITH SUPPORT OF .AVI .MP4 AND .MKV VIDEOS :gun:

    Snes9x for 3DS? Yes please. But I don't have a 3DS anymore (sold mine due to visual impairment). Hopefully this is legit.

    I'm skeptical. If it is something to write home about though, I hope it's not a card. It'd be much better as a software thing like what's been done with the PSP as opposed to a Chinese cottage industry.

    PSX actually works on the DS now though a DSTWO so the 3DS should be more than enough to handle it. If anything's on the edge it's N64 emulation, Majora's Mask, Smash 64, and Goldeneye on a 3DS would be awesome.

    Hopefully the graphics can be pushed to their limit. I would love to be able to play some PS2 games like Shadow of the Colossus or GC games like XD Gale but for 64, Pokemon Snap is where my heart goes.

    It would be crazy if they could figure out not only how to emulate N64 games, but display them in 3D too

    Of course that requires extra processing power that could easily go into making the emulation faster.
