    Default Speaking of Emulators....

    This somewhat interest me. What's available to the great unrooted mass? I've seen the atari app and didn't think much of it (because of the reviews that said it was just a catalog). Just wondering what people are using and maybe a little how to....

    I was looking for a ps2 emulator myself but I heard you have to run it on a Pc and remote control through splashtop

    Good to know but it's somewhat disappointing a quadcore 1.3ghz still can't match a 300mhz ps2 single-core. Which of these systems in the first link do you think is the most powerful? I would say PSP since you can play PSX games on one.

    Are there any emulators that utilize the entire display on a smartphone? I have a Note 2 and want to take advantage of every inch! I'd like a NES or a NES64 emulator.

    the whole point of emulators is that they let you run apps on your current hw/os that you could not before, so whichever works is best, hehe.

    Well it's not that it doesn't "match" it per se. The thing is that the Tegra 3 is definitely a more powerful processor. The problem is that when you're emulating you have a piece of software (Emulator) telling the processor exactly how the original hardware is supposed to read the information and then it has to "emulate" that process and in that there is a lot of wasted energy and overhead. Especially when you are running this on top of a fully functioning Android OS which is taking it's own part of your resources. If the games were to be ported to the Nexus 7 then they would probably work amazingly well.

    Retroarch has quite a number of emulators built in. Best of all, it's free, ad-free and open source.

    It's a bit lacking on the UI department, but there is a very active dev community behind it and it just keeps on getting better with every update.

    Is there a PS1 emulator? I just want the original Wipeout that stole so much of my younger years.
