    I would barely call it current-gen.
    It's more like an updated last-gen console.
    Who really cares, though? I've had as much fun playing Wii as I have on the other consoles. MH Tri and Brawl.

    I think you can, providing you can prove you own the original.

    Also, I'm rather curious about one particular issue. I own the GBA port of Super Mario Bros, but not the NES cart. Does that mean if I downloaded the NES ROM and played it, that would be okay?
    Technically it is still illegal if you own the game and download another copy of it.

    Like walking into a car dealership and picking up another car for free because you already own one. Its the fact there is two distinct versions of the intellectual property you would have in your possession.

    Edit:
    Please take note the TECHNICALLY bit, I have never ever heard of it being enforced ever, but as far as intellectual property licensing laws go, you are not allowed to reproduce the IP into multiple copies (unless you can prove they are for backups). Again though, hardly enforceable, and again, have never heard of it being enforced, I am just highlighting the technicality of it.

    actually its more like going into a virtual car dealership and downloading an older version of a car that you already have

    It's not like the cops are going to storm into your house because you downloaded a Pokemon Blue ROM online that has a physical value of less than £1.

    There's lots of retarded laws in this world that desperately need a major overhaul so they'll make sense now, and in the future.

    I've been using PCSX2 to play my copy of Timesplitters: Future Perfect recently as my younger brother still won't return my PS2 controllers. Other than the occasional graphical glitch and the hot, hot CPU on emulated CPU action causing a 68C temp, it runs fairly well.

    Might look at using a Wii emulator at some point, I'd really need a sensor bar for it to work with any games I own though

    5+ years and thats very optimistic.
    There is one guy that took interest in making 360 emu, but I don't know anyone else trying it.

    I am honestly not surprised, because consoles nowadays are getting more complicated.

    Is PCSX2 the best PS2 emulator? I was playing FFX again with it a while ago, but it was plagued with bugs and glitches.

    PCSX2 is the only PS2 emulator that runs commercial PS2 games so I'd say it's best. As for FFX you should download latest version and it should be alright. AFAIK it is one of PS2 games that has low requirements.

    I don't bother with emulators mainly because I already have the hardware. :smug:
    I would agree though that the original NO$GMB emulator (here) is pretty cool. It's ancient to today's standards but the minimum requirements are for an XT/AT (286) system running DOS so I can play Pokemon on my Compaq Portable 386's amber gas plasma display.

    Wow, look at the detail in some of those textures, you'd never see that level of detail when playing on the actual Wii because of the SD res

    Had a Yamaha CX5M II/128 which was an MSX system but traded it as I had no useful way to play anything other than the music synth and the onboard BASIC on it (no cassette cable, no floppy drive and notably, no cartridge games).
    Also briefly had a 3DO but it was total ass and traded it for an equally useless Commodore CD32.
    Now that I think of it, I have a Vectrex emulator for an old PDP-11 hidden somewhere but have no vector terminals to use it with.

    Emulate the same game at 1080p with anti-aliasing. Compare to the original console. Never go back.

    FFX runs fine on PCSX2. Make sure you enable the "missing terrain" fix though.

    The CX5M is the only model released in North America, am i right? If so, almost NO GAMES were available for it, most likely due to the little interest people had in it. And the fact it was marketed as a music computer.

    Tiny bits of content from TimeSplitters using PCSX2;

    It runs fairly decently, the story mode has some slowdown issues during anything remotely intensive, the arcade modes are usually fairly fine give or take the occasional artefact (protip: virus mode and the ghost gun cause bad enough artefacts alone, together, holy shit it's bad).
