    Wii. I've found that the emulators seem to run BETTER than they do on the PS3, in spite of the huge difference in power. We can thank the PS3's hypervisor tech for that.

    PS3? Has that been homebrew hacked?

    I play all my old games on my Wii using emulators. It's awesome.
    And I'm thinking about buying a Pandora for portable old school fun.

    Wii and if in worst case scenario's the pc. Nothing like having a SNES controller thats PC compatible.

    Wii for SNES, Genesis, Neogeo, NES, SMS, GG, GB, TG16, and SCUMM. I have a modded XBOX but prefer playing these on my Wii for some reason. Patiently waiting for the eventual release of Wii64 that works well. I love the Wii alright!

    Interesting you can basically run the same Linux on the PS3 that you run on the PC or is it a modified version? Also the PS3 should have good emulation power and there are gerat emulators written for Linux. How does the PS3 handle mame games that riquiere a bit of power like Tekken 3 or Mk4?

    How much RAM does the PS3 have. I'm sure this could be a limit in emulation as well.

    I use my PSP for all of my classic games. The emulators are highly impressive.

    The consoles that they released on..

    But if there's a rare instance that I want to play an old game I don't have, the Wii.

    PC 99% of the time.
    Sometimes I use my Pocket PC for GBA emulation (Mother 3 FTW).

    I've got a collection of most of the old consoles/computers that I use for playing the games on. Although I need to get a new CRT TV, they don't look half as good on a LCD monitor. For the consoles I don't own I'll use emulation on the PC to try them out but I never play games properly on any emulator except Mame.
