    Vita can't run mGBA without issues, same goes with Snes, as it's pretty much too weak to emulate them full speed, unless you OC the weak CPU, but that's just me. PSP and PS1 injection is pretty much perfect though.

    One still a huge fan of GameYob, I run it on my 3DS and flash carts. It's nearly perfect from what I've played, zero issues for me and custom SGB borders are amazing

    2 out of 4 are not emulators :D
    Well Virtual console is but you spend a good chunk talking about GBA which isn't emulated.

    Maybe change the title to something like:
    "Best ways to play games from other consoles on the 3DS"

    Or "Best emulators and compatibility layers for 3DS"

    I see your point but semantics aside, the title we chose works well for newcomers and search engine results. Let's not split hairs :)

    Sorry to bother but the only thing I may change is the title in the website main page since it says "Top 5 3DS Emulators" when there are actually only four of them in the post.

    i'm not arguing about that. but these emulators presented here aren't the best, 1 and 3 aren't really emulators, lacking all the common functions taken for granted from those, 2 is in beta and only plays a few games somewhat ok, while 4 is ok, but also severely limited and wont be able to play most of its catalogue properly.

    safe for the screen, i take the 3ds over the vita in any emulator they share besides ps1, absolutely, it's better to carry, less crampy to hold and perfectly fine for those retro games.
    yet, i'd never go back to VC injection, now that gpsp isn't crashing anymore.

    Isn't gPSP on the Vita like, really outdated? I'd definitely use that on my modded Vita if it didn't have frameskip and audio issues.

    Was expecting a more comprehensive list for each system rather than, booting into gba mode, booting into ds mode, & the 2 newest emus for systems that still don't have perfect emulation.

    Well to be fair, only so much can be done with ancient ARM hardware.

    That I understand, but there's plenty emus on 3DS for other systems, which I was expecting to see.

    This is a thread for the best emulators to use on the 3ds not a thread about the best emulators of the 3ds :rofl2:

    This is one of three themes that could be obtained through Club Nintendo before it was discontinued.
