How well will this work for GBA, N64, and SNES Emulation? All I need out of a phone is calling, texting, 4chan, web, and emulators. I hate carrying around multiple devices like a handheld and a phone, or even a phone and a bluetooth controller, so this is perfect for me. I'm on metro. For $70 is this a good buy?
I had one, and almost exclusively played N64 games on it.
It's really fucking slow. GBA/SNES and the native PSX emu work great, but it doesn't have the power for playable N64 games. I think the only thing I could run at a stable framerate was Rush 2.
Had one of these a while ago, still got it somewhere, really nice, just wish they made a newer one, would definately buy one of them, it does struggle with n64 but ps1, gba etc ran great
That shit is really outdated.
But can run well those games, at least OoT, MKart and Mario 64, thats the only I've played on android.
Gba shit runs smooth, I dont know bout Snes, assume that shit whitout specific chipsets must run well.
But kik/wa/fb chat reccent versions run on that android?
Or you're a neet that doesnt need IM apps?
Very good buy. I used it for all that almost every day and I really miss it. It's pretty outdated but for 70 dorrah it's not bad. Not all ps1 games run well on it, even after overclocking. n64 is sort of fine I think.
I remember reading that the Xperia Play was already outdated when it came out, compared to the top performing smartphones of its year.
Look at this:
a fucking smartphone already emulating gamecube, albeit slowly for now.
man I miss my old Xperia with the physical keyboard.
I fell for the lies that touch screens aren't so bad, that you get used to them.
You don't, they're shit, full physical phone keyboards are god.
