Emulators


The beginnings of emulation are already showing up on hacked PS3s. Dreamcast emulator NullDC has a rough version running on Sony's flagship game system. There's a few screenshots of DC games running on the PS3 on dcemu. So fa...


As I've probably said before, demakes are a pretty cool thing. The idea of playing Halo on an Atari 2600 won't cause anybody to cancel their pre-order of Reach but it might give you a few minutes of amusement. Halo ...


A man by the name of Ryuto created this very special emulated speedrun of Brain Age. How is this special? Well this isn't a traditional speedrun as the main goal is to entertain by answering the game's math questions with ic...


Famed mobile device emulator maker ZodTTD has announced his next project: A PlayStation emulator for Android. After a 1,800+ person petition was signed to get him to port his iPhone project, he accepted He's working with the ...


Growing up playing arcade machines every opportunity I could find, there were two types of machine that I've always wanted. The first is a Neo-Geo cabinet, which has been fulfilled. Which means that I now must work on convinc...


I like Legos well enough. I also obviously like videogames. As well, it has been proven that, like peanut butter and chocolate, Legos and videogames have gone well together...at least in the digital realm. Not so much has bee...


Here's something you don't see every day. An emulator for the Sega Genesis is on its way to the iPhone App Store and, get this, it probably won't be taken down within 24 hours. Sega is getting set to release their own officia...


HTC's new HD2 phone is a beauty...except for that whole Windows OS crap. It's a processing beast, though, and that makes it a prime candidate for emulation. PlayStation emulation, anyone? That's the dream. A portable playing...


There's not much to go off here, but from what we can see, this N64 emulator looks like it's shaping up to be solid. The strangely named 3G4 was developed by a 14-year-old, believe it or not. I don't know what mojo this teen...


Oops! Nokia has gotten itself into trouble after releasing a commercial that shows a chap playing NES, SNES and Spectrum games on his mobile phone. The advert boasts about using emulators on Nokia products, with the implicati...


This really is quite remarkable. Not only has the Wii been successfully and competently emulated on the PC, but the graphics are being brought to us in shiny 720p HD. While it does have a few issues, the Dolphin emulator curr...


If you were into that whole emulation thing, you could jam all of your NOT-downloaded games onto this little device from Chinavasion. The Multi Platform Portable Gaming Entertainment System costs only $87, but will play NES, ...


I never understood the whole make your console a computer obsession. I mean, don't you have to use a perfectly working computer to learn how to make your console a computer? Can't you just continue to use that first computer...


Trying to keep the Dreamcast alive is a noble cause. And trying to make the beloved game system portable in some form is commendable. But seeing this example of not quite there is both sad and funny.I'm not picking on the em...


Hey everyone, this week I'm taking a suggestion from Hamsa and throwing out the dark topic of emulation. We had some good points of view in another thread when we were talking about Chrono Trigger for the SNES, so we figured ...


A few months back we came across a PlayStation emulator for the iPhone. It was a pretty nifty proof of concept, but as an actual gaming solution it looked to be pretty weak. There are too many buttons on the PlayStation cont...


iPhone is sexy and all, but this news somehow made it a hundred times sexier. It seems that LucasArts emulator Scumm VM is now fully functional for iPhone, allowing you to emulate all your old favorites and rock out some Day ...


After ten years, Capcom's CPS3 arcade system board has finally been decrypted. CPS3, the board that powers some of Capcom's best arcade hardware (Street Fighter III/2I/3S, Red Earth) has been one of the most legendary...


News surfaced on Digg that the highly compatible PlayStation 2 emulator PCSX2 has been updated and appears to support most of the popular games. The benchmarks are what you would expect -- 12-20 FPS with mixed results on CG m...


If you've been keeping up on your Podtoids since episode 8, you might be aware that I'm a PSP owner and perhaps one of its more vocal critics. We're coming up on nearly two years since the PSP's advent and I c...


The guys over at Bitflicks.com have been producing these Nintendo game stop motion animation videos out of Lego and posting them on the net for everyone to watch.  At first, the concept was cool as they recreated Donke...


Nothing makes me happier than swag ... except when brown little packages of the non-poop variety show up at my doorstep for hardware review on Destructoid. This weekend we received one from RetroUSB which contained their new ...


Update! Someone has responded to the Wiili order and created a demonstration video of just how useless and awkward the Wiimote is on Windows to a newb. With some practice I'm sure this can become the #1 way to surf for po...


Here's something you'd think the Xbox 360 should be able to do without a hitch   -- run Windows XP. I guess they weren't kidding when they tried to pass it off as a computer for tax breaks in the UK! As evide...


Apparently, I'm not the only guy who thought eight dollars for Altered Beast on the Wii was criminal. My solution? Throwing a hissyfit on my sofa and buying it anyway. This guy? He found an old hack to load emulators, by...


Nostredamus, eat your maggot-filled desiccating heart out. A week ago we foretold that emulation on the PS3 was not only going to be a cakewalk, but the system's raw power and massive storage space would allow it to run...


Please allow me to start a dirty rumor, supported only by trends of what gamers have done and what they demand of their new consoles. The PSP is possibly the world's greatest emulation console, and I see the PS3 on the same...


If we told you that you could have a portable video game device that plays movies, had 1GB of storage, supported a few Sega and Nintendo emulators, played mp3s, had an FM tuner, and transformed into a camera ... you'd most ...


Sick of playing those fancy colorful DS and Advance game carts? Do you long for the days of craptacular calculator games like Usgard shell, ZKart3D, ZTetris, Solytare, Jezzball, Lunoid8, Minesweep, and PhoenixZ? If so, you c...

While you're furiously refreshing the site to see more of Niero's story with JT, go check out VNES, a java based game player for NES games. At this time, the guy's got nearly 400 games put up there. It's a nice timewaster i...


The catalogue of retro games available on the Virtual Console continues to grow as Epyx announced that Commodore 64 games will be playable on Nintendo's new console. The first Commodore 64 games available on the Wii will be...


Disclaimer: You may download a game rom only if you can do so legally. This means you must own the actual cartridge (or other media the rom was distributed on) of the rom you are downloading. Have you ever wanted to play ...


Have some time to kill? Ever wanted to creat some sort of awesome MegaMan/Metroid lovechild? Even if you answered "No" to either of those questions, check out MegaMan vs. Metroid, ftw, over at JARKEY. Designed by StatiCreat...


Sometimes you have to wonder where homebrew developers get their ideas. It's pretty easy to understand why someone would want to play SNES games on a GBA. Finding a good reason why someone would want to run Mac OS 7.5 on a Nintendo DS is not. It looks like someone managed to do it and even shot a video to prove it: Now, who wants to make Windows 3.1 for the PSP ?


Winamp and the Nintendo DS don't have much in common. They make for strange bedfellows - one is a virtual program made by some guy who worked for and hated AOL, and the other is this sexy shiny little thing sitting on my des...


The console that lost the Atari war and gave us one of the all time most hideous controllers is now, for better or worse, playable on your Nintendo DS. The ColecoDS 1.0 emulator runs commercial roms quickly, supports (mos...


Believe it - No$GBA, a free lightweight Game Boy Advance emulator, has added support for commercial Nintendo DS roms. As you can see from the screenshots, the games run almost flawlessly with both screens rendered accurate...


NINTENDO 64444444 EMULATOOOOOOR!!! If there was any doubt as to who the king of the homebrew handheld emulation world was, this should settle it. Daedalus, the N64 emulator for the PSP, is now running at a solid 15-17 fra...


I could Mame games all day, but this guy looks like he's punished in the corner. Keeping him company is an ATM looking custom Mac Mame console which features a rotating wide angle LCD with touch screen sexiness, a generous...
