    I downloaded the emulator and it seems legit after looking at some of the files encluded.....it seems a bit much to be a troll, but the "bios file" is needed to play and the download link for it is protected by a survey.

    Nah dude. The 3DS hasnt been hacked, so we have no way of building an emulator. Delete it, you might have viruses now.

    Welcome to the temp, read the rules and stickies. please.

    Does a 3DS emulator that includes playstation bios and plugins and supposedly may have previously been an xbox emulator or something to that extent sounds like it is legit?

    tl;dr
    Maybe take a look at what you are downloading before trying to get the illegal bits.

    No and I will explain why...
    1. the plugins are pcsx2 optimized and it is in their header
    2. the internal blocks countage leaves you with 750MB~ of memory on the 3ds, yet the hardware points out for 1GB NAND
    (http://www.3dbrew.org/wiki/Hardware)
    meaning bios+OS=256MB, the BIOS file alone can't be over 1GB like the one the website hosts, header of that BIOS is actually pointing out to be Wii BIOS, to see that you need to use an hex editor and view the first addresses of the plugins and the BIOS file

    edit: Rydian, Jurassicplayer, don't bash on him, it's happened that the forum plain leecher found out new news, posted about it a question and made a discovery for the entire forum, AKAIO developed from Acekard R.P.G being open-source, if Normmatt wouldn't know that acekard 2.1 (being closed source) developers were willing to share it's sources for AKAIO, AKAIO would've been limited to R.P.G only

    Yeah... but the glaring problem of the 3DS being hacked is still at large.

    The 3ds isn't emulated or hacked. If it was, it'll be said on front page news.

    coloration is off, image quality is poor, and it's not particularly hard to put a video on top of another video/image. No it doesn't look legit to me.

    The guy recorded his gameplay with a crap camera. He should be ashamed for not using at least a capture device.

    Well, the GBA was emulated before it's actual release. Also, EmuCR.com reported this emulator as legit. I wonder why.
