    Exactly how many systems are physically backwards compatible with the N64?

    Tristar 64
    N64 (Region Free)
    Famicom
    NES (Famicom to NES Adapter)
    Famicom Disk System
    Super Famicom/SNES
    GameBoy (Super GameBoy)
    GameBoy-Compatible GameBoy Color (Super GameBoy)
    Genesis (RetroGen Adapter)
    Master System (Power Base Converter)

    Are there any other systems that could be played on the N64? Example:

    Could there be a hack for Pokemon Stadium/2 that let you play any GB/GBC game?
    Would the Genesis Add-ons work?

    I think if you have a Flash Cart for the N64 I think there is a NES emulator for it.....

    I have been Googleing around for it while making this post and I can't find it anywhere, but I could swear I did see one. It was super primative and looked like Dos and it only supported like 2 or 3 mappers (I might also be remembering wrong since it has been a long time since I read about it. Maybe it was some ones project and they never finished it?)

    Edit: Ok I wasn't completely insane, I found it.

    Limited Mapper support but it does support more than I thought.

    The WideBoy-64 could be compatable with GameBoy, GameBoy Color & GameBoy Advance. Too bad they never released it for retail, but someone could of made a reproduction of it.

    Could we be able to somehow play these Game Systems (legitimately, with a physical cartridge) on N64:

    -Atari 2600
    -Game Gear
    -Satellaview
    -Sega CD
    -Sega 32X
    -GameBoy Color
    -GameBoy Advance

    Er... why? Why specifically on an N64?

    If it's because of the controller, there's kits out there you can get to convert your legit controller to a USB one.

    Just to see how many system's libraries we could fit onto one piece of hardware (not with emulators or rereleases but with physical original cartridges). Maybe to get the best original-cartridge based retro gaming experience all on one console.
