When will/can the 3DS be hacked? First off, WE DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING about the security system that the 3DS has, however seeing as it has a large following it is almost guaranteed that it will be hacked before the end of its lifetime What can/can't it emulate? First off WE DO NOT KNOW everything about the 3DS hardware but theoretically it could emulate everything the DS can and most likely the GBA, anything more is not impossible but certainly not going to be easy. Another thing to have in mind is that many home consoles have a vertical output more than 240, while we have had workarounds in the past they are usually not perfect. Will there be a PC 3DS emulator? No. I may reconsider in 2020 but until then go emulate a DS and report back your awesome framerates. Will it be released in 2010? No. Reggie said it himself.
