    I decided that emulators on touchscreens aren't the best way to play emulated games like the snes unless they're rpgs. Is an xperia play with the emulators a good purchase or should I get something more dedicated like a dingoo?

    you are aware that that's an unauthorized clone of the Mupen64plus AE emulator, while he may have credited it, the author pretty much just outright copied-and-pasted the source code and doesn't bother to improve or modify it in anyway other then the name, figured this guy would just take credit from someone else's n64 emulator and make a quick buck since Mupen64plus itself was just recently taken off of Google Play, pff.. what a load...

    if you want your hands on the real deal here's the link

    support the REAL creator anyway you can

    I have only good things to say about my Xperia play! It runs GBA flawlessly and you can install psone games using the native official Sony app. N64 runs well on stock devices but better on overclocked ones. Snes runs flawlessly and there are a large amount of Xperia play optimized games and apps that are free and paid. The phone is very customizable due to the fact that it runs android 2.3.4 stock and is due to get 4.0.3 at the end of may. As a phone it performs well in internet browsing and foruming as I am doing right now. If you need to know anything or the names and links emulators or to methods described ie overclocking or anything in general I would be ecstatic to help :)

    The nice thing about the Xperia is that you can use any Android emulator and most you can configure the physical keys as well, so hello NES, SNES, GB/A/C, Genesis, GG, MAME and Atari.

    Didn't see a problem seeing as the source is available and he gave full credits. If the guy had claimed it to be his, then I would have an issue

    You can always get a bluetooth controller (with phone mount) so you can use a much more powerful phone.

    I recommend using N64oid if you want speed, or Mupen64 Plus, Android Edition if you want constant updates and different options. I would warn you that other projects that take Paul's source code generally don't add much to the source and are in it for a quck buck. Besides, the original project is free on his website: http://www.paulscode.com/forum/index.php?topic=96.0
