New videos of PlayStation and Game Boy Advance emulators running on iPhone 3GS hardware look pretty impressive. There's no jailbreak yet, but when it happens, you'll have a pretty nice pocket GBA on your hands as an iPhone 3GS owner running emulator gpSPhone. How impressive? Try over 200 frames per second clocked while running Pokemon Emerald, even with sound on. See it for yourself in the cracked out demonstration video after the jump.

Only slightly less impressive is the video of Final Fantasy VII running on the psx4iphone emulator. It looks to run nicely and at a decent frame rate, though no sound is included.  Zodttd says that the emulator runs "very speedy" on the 3GS, though the emulation is still rough around the edges. Impressive. Get this going. I would love to have some portable RPG action on the go.

Check out both videos after the jump.

Final Fantasy XV screenshots from TGS are...uh

You've seen the trailer so now see the screenshots Square Enix handed me this morning at Tokyo Game Show 2014 for Final Fantasy XV. They're having a tailgating party. Car-b-que. It's a nice car, I guess. But the screenshots look nice! That battle one does something for me. The upcoming Xbox One and PS4 title has this new media, but that's the only thing you'll get out of TGS 2014. Hang in there.more
