    Can the Picodrive DS run Sega CD games? The Sega Cd has some additional hardware, and I don't know if Picodrive DS covers them, or is it just a bare Genesis emulator.

    Or, to put it another way: I'd like to play the English version of Snatcher on my DS. Can it be done?

    The Picodrive I have for the PSP does SegaCD as well--if it can do the same on the DS, I don't know. Same name, but I don't know if it performs the same.

    I wasn't even aware there was a Picodrive for the DS until now.

    Well, the first stage of Sonic CD has been backported to the Genesis by Stealth, hacker extraordinaire. As it's still copyrighted material, though, I can't really link you to it.

    Lordus has stated that it's too powerful to consider emulating at full speed. As a proof of concept of course it would be possible, but to get games in a playable state would probably take more power than the DS hsa.
