    I KNOW WE ARE A LONG LONG WAY FROM EVEN PS2/GAMECUBE/XBOX EMULATION.

    My question is... I have a Wii and a PS3 and I know they will be very difficult to emulate because of the extra hardware in the controllers, but will the 360 be emulatable? Will 360 games be able to be played with like a keyboard?

    Of course it will. Just not anytime to soon. Expect a couple of years until then.

    Why not? And as usual, the best way to play emulated games is with a knock-off controller or with the real controller with adapter (if required, I know the 360 controller can connect via bluetooth).

    Coders will probably get better at using hardware too, so maybe it'll happen sooner or better than you think.

    Is there no motion-sensing type of technology on the 360?

    PS2 and Game cube are too able to be emulated!

    I really, really, really see no point to it. Reason being that a lot of 360 games are on PC as well. But I guess it would be cool just to see if you could.

    I'd like to see them start releasing Xbox Live arcade games on the PC, it was the only real reason I had a 360 two seperate times.....

    I'm guessing yes, but not for a long time. As the years go by, computers are able to emulate things that require more "man-power".

    Isn't the XBOX 360 very similar to a PC, and don't they even use DirectX?

    Uh? The PS2 is emulated almost perfectly, although you need a rather powerful PC. The GameCube is emulated pretty well, but it doesn't run at full speed. Dunno about the Xbox.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Dolphin already supports a good chunk of Wii games, and you can use your Wiimote through Bluetooth if you want. GameCube also works pretty well on the same emulator (Dolphin).

    PS2 is getting on for full emulation, but it's been on hiatus for ages, and as for Xbox, no-one thinks it's good enough to start a serious emulator aha. There is one though, that only plays the original Halo (which is clearly useless, seeing as you can play it on PC already).

    As for Xbox 360 and PS3 emulation, sure it's possible, but both pushed the envelope hardware-wise much, much more this generation than any generation before, so expect it to take another 10 years at least before proper emulation [​IMG]. Basically, don't hold your breath.

    Are there any exclusive 360 titles that aren't also on computer? (Speaking of which, where is Halo 3 for PC?)

    There have been rumours that Halo 3 will come to PC, just as the previous titles have...Maybe when the next xbox comes out or when the next Windows OS is released? Seems to be the trend when it comes to Halo games being ported to PC.

    I'm not sure about about the 360 (although I know it's just as strong as the PS3), but good luck emulating that Cell processor [​IMG]
