So that my friends can keep asking me "Oh, you got another Nintendo DS ?", while I never had any Nintendo DS at all.
As it is a powerful portable gamers computer, fullspeed emulation of as many 8 and 16 bit computers as possible. I am hoping for flawless Atari ST, Amiga/A1200, SharpX68000 and solid dosbox. If this happens I will consider my money well spent.
Historically we got good GCN emulation a good few years before we got decent Saturn emulation. As I understand it, the Saturn has two CPUs and other duplicated bits that run at the same time, more of less on very similar clocks. Maybe having a dual core CPU will help with that, but if not emulating all of the corner cases of different CPUs completing certain different workloads at different times can be difficult to do on modern systems. The gamecube by comparison is just a power ISA CPU connected to some fast ram and a GPU, so much simpler to emulate.
Call me naive, but I expected it within the previous decade.Wasnt it to expect that it will take that long? On the Pandora, there where a lack of experience, therefore i ditnt bought a GPH Device, i believed in the 2 Months (tm)..
I hope it will be less than 4 Weeks from now, but i think whe should make this after the old slogan : hope for the best, expect the worst (or something like that)..
