    With full unlocked vita, what's happens with emulation about N64 ? Vita have decent hardware to give for us good emulation, But I don't understand why nobody interest to build it :/. For PSP with low hardware, it can gives little good emulation (with buggy sounds or glitch graphics, but runs). Please someone give this retro for us.

    The Vita was basically dead on arrival everywhere other than Japan, nobody is going to make a completely new emulator for it. It's in a similar situation to the Wii U, where you can run all the emulators from the previous system, but to take advantage of the current hardware there's only Retroarch.

    Something about the Vita's Graphics API being too complex and niche. Not much interest and lack of developers that are willing to make an n64 emulator using the Vita's API. It's not so much power that is holding the Vita back, but the standards and modernization of current GPU hardware. From my understanding, you would have to develop an n64 emulator specifically for the PSVita, and not many people are willing to do that for such a small audience.

    Yeah, on top of that; SNES emulation for games with special chips in them still have problems with Retroarch on the vita. I'm no expert; but I imagine that SNES chip games are easier to emulate then N64 games, right?
    if the N64 did get an emulator; I'd imagine it wouldn't be that great. Probably like Daedalus but slightly faster and maybe more stable, maybe.

    maybe I'm wrong, but I don't believe if is impossible to give good emulation for vita on n64, we just need someone with high skill level to do that, I see one guy from retroarch begins to worked on n64 last year, but I don't see any feedbacks anymore.... :/

    good to see that with the vita being hacked this long we still haven't gotten proper emulation on it. :nayps3:

    I'm interested in this too. Maybe I can dust off the console and play some Doom 64.
