    I noticed this but I'm not seeing how it's possible on a system that _just_ launched. Does Xperia share the same architecture as the PSP and they are simply running Daedalus?

    The link says they're using an android emulator.

    They're running the N64 Android emulator.

    Beaten.

    Must... resist... buying... Xperia Play! NGGGH!

    Seriously, that's awesome. I wonder how Zelda: OoT would run on it.
    Also gimme PSX emulation and it's a must-buy.

    any half-decent android phone can do that.
    let me add some things to the list:
    xperia play unhacked can play:
    free angry birds
    GBA
    GBC
    GB
    NES
    snes
    N64
    PSX
    gamegear
    genesis
    atari
    nintendoDS(low framerates and crappy compatibility though)
    mame
    C64
    amiga500
    and whatever else you can find on market.android.com
    really, topics about whatever the xperia play can run are pointless.

    I made this thread not to tell that it can play n64 games but to tell that the psp buttons work on the emulator
    (Sorry if it meant something else )

    and those buttons will work in all the emulators i mentioned, because they all have user-customizable button settings and gingerbread added button mappings for game-controller buttons

    Yeah, saying an Android app runs on an Android device isn't really news. Framerate does seem to be pretty decent, though, at least for a Snapdragon device.

    This phone needs to be on AT&T. Like right now. Now.

    Eh, the only thing it really brings to the table over other phones is the gamepad, and really, if you're stuck on AT&T, just get an Atrix and use the onscreen controls, or hookup a Wiimote to it. The hardware on the Xperia Play is hardly anything impressive; in fact, the only thing it offers over last year's X10 is a gamepad and an extra 128MB of RAM. The Atrix has a Tegra 2, and some quick tests have already shown it may be more powerful than the new iPad (and assuming it uses roughly the same hardware, the eventual iPhone 4G).

    Very nice to see some phones being able to emulate decent consoles. Just what I need in my next phone!

    This is the perfect portable for emulators like this, seriously. But it's so damn expensive right now (without a contract)... I'll wait a little (six months) and get it for a little less. =)

    perfect would've been at least dual-core.
    i think the "best emulation android" is a tie between LG optimus 2X(tegra2 for good framerates, HDMI for TV-out) and the xperia play(gamepad for better controls)

    and there are some alternatives to a built-in gamepad.
    i just got a zeemote (paired using bluez IME) for emulation.

    It's a shame that N64oid was removed from the Android market, apparently because too many people were complaining. It was by no means perfect, but good progress was being made. Hopefully it will be released again in a better state.

    That's pretty sweet, although I find it redundant to make everything in this entire world to run emulators.

    Edit: I know, I know, it gives people choices...
