    HAH, depends on your definition of "Work". Also:

    • PSP has 333 MHz RISC CPU. Physical Buttons
    • iPhone/iPod Touch 1G & 2G: 412/420/520 ARM CPU. Touch Screen + Accelerometer

    I bet it could, but think of how poor it runs the SNES emulator, n64 would be worse

    snes works fine. n64 would be pretty laggy. playstation is laggy as hell and n64 would be worse, but i wouldn't use it to much. just for fun once in a while.
