    Can n64 emulation be achieved with the DSi with it's stronger processing powers? Or is THAT type of emulation still far off in the distance.

    If there were a flash cart that had to be dedicated to emulating n64 roms, I'd buy it without hesitation.

    I should have known. The PSP can barely emulate n64.

    Man, Nintendo really made a little kids toy.

    You really think the DSi could emulate N64 with a measly 133Mhz processor?
    The N64 ran on a 93.75Mhz processor itself, and the golden rule of emulation is 7x to 10x the power of what you're trying to emulate.

    ...It's a wonder the PSP can even do any N64 emu, that's clocked at 333Mhz, without overclock.

    I reckon he played Super Mario 64 DS, on his DS assuming it was almost a direct port of the N64 game, he thought there might be a possibility that they could run other N64 games on a DSi. Not a bad thought though, but many other N64 roms are larger than SM64, so it would take alot of compressing, and staring at shitty quality.

    Port =/= remake. Super Mario 64DS is not an "almost direct port" at all: it's a remake. The game has been made for DS, not ported over. Besides, the access to DSi-specific features has not been cracked yet. When it's done, then we can start discussing what we can or cannot do with them.

    I know it's a remake, I was trying to imply that he assumed that SM64DS was a direct port.

    Remake and port are similar, a remake being done without source and a port being done with source code and graphics and such. In this regard SM64DS was a port, with a few additional features added in. The point is that it wasn't emulated.
