    For example porting PS2 emulators or Dolphin for GC/Wii. Just wondering if the PS3 would run those systems games.

    i believe someone is attempting to port dolphin to the ps3 already but as far as a ps2 emulator is concerned you would need a open source ps2 emu first, i have no idea if epsxe2 is open or not. as for dolphin being ported successfully to the ps3, i wouldnt bank on it really

    dolphin has already been successfully port to the original xbox with some wii games playable. Last I checked a ps3 has better hardware than an xbox

    EDIT: PSXE 2 source is right on their website.

    just out of interest could you link me up to anything about dolphin running on the original xbox? just had a look on google and cannot find anything on it, and the specs of the original xbox i would imagine would choke trying to run it

    So you guys think it will be possible. Do you think that the emulation would have issues?

    I would *love* to see that, seeing that the ORIGINAL XBOX and the Wii have really similar specs, so I DOUBT, where doubt is an euphemism for "Cool Story Bro", emulation would be possible.

    Would have to agree thats a pretty tall tail there.
     
  10. In theory yeah it can be ported, if you have the knowledge of how things are run on the console.

    PS2 not so much I think, backward chip gone (bad move by SONY), tho why would you wanna run Wii on PS3, not like they cost alot these days + 100% game compatible, only usefull ports imo are the once that are no longer sold in a store like: NES/SNES/GB(C)/ETC.
