lol no kidding. I thought PS2 emulation was crap still, I just found out that there are DS emulators that play most retail games?
The thing is that emulation news are no big news anymore. A lot of things have happened but no one really is interested that much. Look back when CPS2 encryption was broken, how a new playable CPS2 title was always big news. How Neo Geo emulation was big news. How N64 emulation was huge.
Now Dreamcast emulation is meh!, no you say there is Wii emulation? I would just love to see Xbox emulation but sadly that's not getting any where. Also why hasn't anyone taken code from mame from those unplayable games and make an emulator out of it with optimized code to make those games playable?
I really see emulation as being almost dead because not many people care any more.
