    Hello. I have the Homebrew Channel on my Wii but i also have a custom firmware-PSP. My playstation 2 has not yet been modded. Which of these systems has the best emulators for all systems in terms of compatibility, emulation speed, features, etcetera?

    PSP and Wii are pretty close in my opinion. I like the PSP because it has a lot of them (stuff like CPS1, 2, Neo geo, etc...) which isn't suprising...I like the Wii because the emulators it has are usually better as far as speed and stable framerate which isn't suprising either. The PS2 is just ultimately worthless for emulators, It isn't worth the time to mod, whether through hard mod or soft mod if you're only going to use it for emulators.

    XBOX1. Even plays many N64 at full speed and multiplayer.

    It's not well known, but I feel GP2X is by far the best one. I own one and it's totally awesome.

    I'd say the regular Xbox as well. Dirt cheap, soft-modding is supposedly a breeze now and play old school consoles better than alot of PCs. Only flaw is that there's only a couple off controllers that give ya the "old console feel".

    no.1 is xbox1 - FBA and mame cover most of the decent arcade games (but not all), the genesis emulator can even do mega CD and 32x games - also there's the bonus of being able to use XBMC (i can't recommend that program enough)

    a close second is the PSP - play PSX games and there's great CPS1 & 2 & neogeo emulators (front end is better than the xbox versions), the genesis emulator can do mega CD games - i only wish the snes emulator was better

    for consoles xbox 1 is the best, all emulators (nes, snes, megadrive, ps1) etc etc with the exception of the n64 emu run at 720p/1080i through component also which make a world of difference.
    of course my first option for emulation is the pc but if you want a console for emulation cant go wrong with the original xbox, mine has served me well [​IMG]

    Different ballpark. The Wii is a console, the PSP a handheld. As for Wii vs PS2, the PS2 is older and thus probably most bugs ironed out, however the Wii has more power. The PC naturally owns all of em aside from not being all that portable.

    The GP2X is indeed nice, however it looses in power to the PSP. The DS loses even more. The pandora might be the way to go for now however it isn't released yet and it will be a while until it is.

    For a console, Xbox by FAR. Wii comes second close behind. The PSP is great too, but it's a handheld. If you want a portable emulating machine, go for the PSP. If you want to play them on your TV, get an Xbox (the original one). As simple as that.

    (I've never tried a GP2X/32, so I can't speak about those products...)
