    I've been using emulation for like 10 years now. So thanks.

    But as you will read, I never said it didn't work

    ... the wii doesn't have online play, where are you getting online?

    and the wii could be emulated, but it would be rather hard, how did you burn the discs, do they actually spin backwards like some rumors?.

    How can you need excessive equipment to run wii games on a PC? It only has about 700mHz of power itself.

    I also highly doubt you even got wiisports on your pc.
    horrible answers.

    you need to say steep hardware requirements rather then implying it can't be done and leaving false impresions on people.



    There's most likely working emulators for all of these

    (Just for the record, I was talking about GAMECUBE emulation before).

    Generally, you have to emulate exactly, or close to how the console's CPU behaves. This is very resource intensive, and takes a LONG time to optimize (meaning: find cheap tricks to make it use less resources and still emulate properly).

    Because the average PC can't handle that kind of shading and TPS etc.

    It can obviously been done. All a game console is, is a computer. And that all depends on your definition of "working". Because by most people's standards, there is no "working" emulator for those.

    Especially not the DS.

    If by "working" you mean getting the loading screen and nothng else. Well then I have seen all of them emulated on a PC.

    ftcmark, the reason ps2, wii, all all the other consoles run games so well on what SEEMS LIKE low-end hardware (aside from their video cards), is because there is no operating system running to haul you down.

    Wiimote can work on a PC, yes.
    DVDs can be beaten, yes.
    PS2 Emulation has JUST broken through.
    Gamecube..it's doing alright.

    The problem with emulating a wii is that not only do they have to get as far as they did with the ps2/gamecube emulation, but they have to go the extra mile and get the wiimote to detect, and be spot on. The fact that the wii is just such an innovative system is one of its key anti-emulation features.

    Now I know you CAN get the wiimote to run in windows, but it's still a lot of work on your part.

    Basically, Wii emulation won't be seen for 5 years. PS2 took.. 5 or 6, itself, and it's still hardly playable.

    Vagrant: for somebody who's been involved in emulation for 10 years, you really don't seem to know jack about why the requirements are high in comparison to the original systems. Why not try reading what I've said several times already?

    Honestly. Shaders? ...
