Thank you. Yeah I'm also aware of the fact that all of the current-generation consoles uses the IBM-sourced PPC CPUs. In fact, I read a rumour somewhere, maybe on the Net, that Nintendo is considering another IBM CPU for their next successor to the Wii. I think their idea (which they'll never reveal right to the public) is that it's easier to ride on the bandwagon of the other 2 bigger console manufacturers, and hence makes it easier (& cheaper!) for the developers to port and/or develop multi-platform games on their future Nintendo consoles because they already have got experience with the same kind of CPU architecture from the same company.Obikka: PS3 uses PPC64 arch which is not compatible with x86 so no it will never happen.
Oh wow, yeah we don't really need to run a Xbox emulator on such a strange, foreign electronic device when we've already got the evergreen, reliable, and relatively future-proof Windows operating system platform(s) to use. AND, add in the fact that there are now quite a few different types of computers to use - from the desktop to the laptop/notebook, netbooks, tablet computers, touchscreen handheld devices (eg. Samsung Galaxy Tab, but that Android OS...?). Or Connect a laptop through a HDMI cable, or whatever the cable of the future will be to a TV screen plus a controller connected to the computer for playing games.Most developers develop on XBox because PS3 has a tough hardware to work with, so emulating XBox on PS3... will never happen.
You will find gazillion compatibility issues with the hardware itself.
Honestly, this thread should be closed since it's pointless to even discuss it. I'm just letting patrick or shadow make that call this time.* Edit: Probably this thread should be sticked, coz I notice a fair number of people asking this and that question at vastly different times about whether a Xbox emulator will be run on this or that console. I think this thread is just enough information to stop them asking the same question again.
