    After seeing the release of snes it really got me excited and thinking, what other emulators could run on the playbook?

    The current ones in the CrackBerry Forums are DOSBox (DOS), FCEUX (N64 I think), and VBAm (GBA/GBC/GB, but still very beta)

    any emulator is theoretically possible as long as the playbook's hardware can support it and in the case of porting, c source code is available.

    n64 and psx emulation should not be a problem for the hardware at all, they just need some time and effort put in by someone or a group of someones to get it done.
    zethaaron and f1mx like this.

    Also, I just saw something in the forums today about ScummVM having been submitted to App World. I'm not entirely sure what it is but it seems awesome.

    Which of those emulators are bug-free/playable? Probably a better question to ask.

    Fceux and Snes9x-pb work very well. The VBampb emulator is coming along but I couldn't really say it's bug free. Dosbox works pretty well depending on the game.

    Many of the current emulators are very nice (SNES, MD, NES, TG16) and it is kind of backward in a way that the emulators quality are excellent but the interface is lacking. Usually, it is the other way around. With a solid file manager/rom selector these would be that much better. Still, try them as they are really top notch. A Mame port with proper game selection and controls would be a killer app for the PB. I am very interested to see Mame performance personally.

    I would welcome any sort of Amiga emulation. Saw some videos of UAE that had been ported onto 'droid hardware and running a variety of Amiga games. Bring it on.
