Anyone Else Realize This?

Post by MooMooMan » Fri Mar 18, 2016 6:13 am

"Old" 3DS can't handle GBA or SNES emulation.... When the PSP 1K is able to do it at full or near full speed.
Let's think about that.. PSP is from 2004, and it can handle both GBA and SNES, even some N64. Yet the "New" 3DS is the only Nintendo portable capable of emulating those devices... And it was released in what? October 11th, 2014 in Japan? That's literally 10 years later! Haha!

Come on Nintendo! I know you guys don't need all the power in the world, but would it kill you to make your consoles powerful enough to emulate their ancestors? This is crazy!

More than likely they intentionally made it not run able on O3DS in order to force people to buy the N3DS. If I remember correctly there are some homebrews that will run GBA/SNES games released a long time ago for 3DS.

Uhm, the 3DS can emulate the SNES and GBA pretty well, if your O3DS is hacked. Mine is and I have my entire GBA library on there and EarthBound running in the Homebrew channel pretty decently. Can also do Genesis decently too.

This is an ancient thread that someone gravedug; when it was originally posted the O3DS was not supported as well as it is now.
