    This will be able to emulate N64 100% Speed.

    This MAYBE can even play PS1/ Gamecube games based on looks.
    Im waiting for the actual specs to be posted.

    If Nintendo makes the emulator, sure, but most likely it'll all be ports/remakes. PS1 games could've been ported to the DS, but no way for emulation. I'm sure it can handle ported Gamecube games, they've already announced on their site what looks to be a port of Metal Gear Solid 3, which was PS2-only if I remember.

    I also wouldn't rule out some sort of virtual console support, given we already have DSiWare.

    I think it could easily handle gamecube and the like. If you think about it, the hard war has to be powerful enough to render not only the bottom screen once, but it has to render the top screen twice, one for each eye, to create a 3d effect. So considering that, it should have at least the power required to emulate things like the gamecube.

    Why do you still have doubts over possible PS1 emulation? It WILL be capable of emulating PS1 games. Just look at the things they've shown it can do.

    100% N64 but just maybe PS1? Are you trying to say that PS1 was noticeably more powerful than the N64? Or that PS1 and Gamecube are similar in power?

    N64 and PS1 sounds possible, I dunno about 100%. GC might be possible, it all really depends. Looking at the screenshots it's about on par with GC graphics, but who knows? Maybe if you're not using any of the CPU/GPU power to make the 3D effects it'll boost up to between PS2 and Wii graphics. Remember, you need extra power than the original to emulate something [​IMG]
