    Possible yes, good frame-rates maybe? Coming soon, unlikely!

    A N64 emulator seems realistic, but highly unlikely.

    A n64 seems pretty likely we need to make something stable and with good framerates.
    a 3ds is more powerful than a psp right?

    With Ninjhax, no, but if we had full access, then yes.

    I think when put into CIA format it doesn't load properly because it relies on parts of the Cubic Ninja savegame

    Well N64 emulation was ok on the PSP. I think the 3DS could handle it, but the N3DS quite possibly.

    Wrong. Same clock speed, double cores, but not double speed.

    Clock speed isn‘t everything. However ,the higher clock speed,the better emulation

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    Nope. At most you're gonna get a decent SNES emulator, given the architecture. The PSP would do LEAGUES better, because of how its architecture is.

    Yet, N64 emulation the PSP is still slow as molasses, Mario 64 barely runs at all.




    New 3DS clock speed is still 266 MHz or so, not enough for N64 emulation really.

    Naw mang. Which emulator are you talking about? Version .00000000000001 of StrmnNrmn's Daedalus? Or the most recent, up-to-date one? THAT ONE runs incredibly well. OoT is full speed, and pretty much 100% playable. IS 100% playable. As is Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart 64, and Mario 64.

    Even PSP is not nessesary now.
    PSP can be perfectly emulated with PPSSPP on android or ios.
    With 4 times resolution of the original PSP games
