    If there was a handheld console that allows you to play N64, PS1,PS2,GC and possible wii games as well as older console games, what would you pay for it ?

    Add: Just a question there is nothing like that in development as far as I know

    Off-Topic: Well wouldn't that make emulations non-existent? The PS3 did the same thing but realize it was encouraging piracy. So Sony stop the open source with the PS3.

    On-Topic: No. For starters, the console better run those games without any frame-drops.

    I'd pay $400 as things sit right now. That's about the cost of the most expensive ipod touch. It was common for UMPCs to run $500 so yeah I'd go $400 for prefect emu of those comsoles

    My tablet can play up to PSX, so however much I paid for my tablet.

    Agreed with Canon though, it's much better playing on original hardware than emulation.

    I prefer the original hardware over emulation.

    sounds nice and all but unless it has its own good exclusive titles i'd stick with the original consoles and probably wouldn't pay more than like $100

    How would the handheld play Wii games? Would you plug a nunchuck in and swing the console like the Wiimote? Would you sync a Wiimote and nunchuck to it and set the console down like a mini-TV?

    People kept flinging Wiimotes....... wouldn't the console get flung even easier if it was the Wiimote?

    As for a handheld that could emulate say up to the PS2, I'm not sure. Given how light the later PS2 models were, is it needed? The slim PS2 is lighter than some tablets. Definitely lighter than a few of the books I sometimes have in my backpack....even a couple of games, a controller, and a set of cables is lighter.

    Probably no more than 300, and at that price point, it likely won't happen for quite a long time.....probably longer than it'll take Sony to rework a PS2 game or two for the Vita, or whatever they put out after it.

    Actually I have not thought about it. I just looked at some FPGAs and thought it may be possible to make a handheld console for emulation only and than I thought about what the people would pay for it if it ever got build.

    I'd be willing to part with around 300 dollars for that miracle box you speak of.

    I'd pay $500 if it played everything up to the Wii, PS2 and DS.
    If it didn't play Wii games then $300.

    I'd rather just buy all of the consoles and games I want. If I'm paying $300+ (Which is what it would cost, realistically...Probably more), I might as well.

    That device is my laptop and I paid $ 700 for it.

    But then for older games up to the Wii ( but excluded PSX and PS2) nothing would beat a $99 Wii hooked up with an old school CRT TV !
    Really, in this department, the Wii fares better then most PCs or tablets, the quality and authenticity of the picture on a CRT TV ( as they were meant to be played ) has no rivals.
    And it can play natively GC and Wii games at 100% speed with 100% compatibility ;) !

    So I'd settle for a $99 Wii ( if I didn't have it already ) and a $35 CRT TV , = $134 :yaywii:

    Wii and Gamecube on a handheld would be nice, but I'd pay a ridiculous amount for a handheld that plays PS2 games.
