59w ago - On this April Fool's Day a group of PlayStation 3 developers going by the name of athen5cl0ne have released what they call 910D0 Beta, a purported all-in-one Nintendo emulator for the PS3 entertainment system that claims to support NES, SNES, GameBoy, GBC, GBA, Nintendo DS, 3DS, Nintendo 64, GameCube and Wii titles.
According to soratheultima some emulation (including 3DS, GameCube and Wii) isn't possible yet, however, tthousand reports that they have uncovered a major flaw in running Nintendo code on the PS3 console and that a more detailed guide is incoming.
Although several users have noted it only crashes for them (even with the proper ROMs and BIOS) those interested can give it a try and share your results below with the included PKG files.

86w ago - As a follow-up to their previous update, this weekend EmulateMii has confirmed that the PS364 Nintendo 64 Emulator for PS3 is still under development and has a near-complete hardware renderer.
To quote: Long overdue progress update and... a 1up on bigN!
We must start by saying that yes, it sure has been a while since our last update. Followers can rest assured though that we have been actively developing all of our projects in one way or another. As mentioned before, all three of us have very little time to work on this stuff due to real life commitments, but combined we seem to be getting things done at what we think is a decent pace.
WiiSX has seen some tinkering to try and get compatibility up, but has run into other issues. We have been keeping in sync with pcsx-reloaded whilst trying to maintain the PPC dynarec for it. Eventually we need to add more recompiled functions to the dynarec in WiiSX, particularly GTE. We initially wanted to do a full PPC dynarec re-write, but that doesn't seem feasible time-wise at the moment. Future plans for WiiSX also include porting a hardware renderer now that Pete's OpenGL plugin is open-sourced.
103w ago - Today PSX-Scene shared an updated demo video of the PS3 Nintendo DS (NDS) Emulator Alpha Build by an anonymous PlayStation 3 developer.
To quote: "It is running very smoothly. I loaded up some games and they all played fine with the exception of the sound, which is not working in the current build.
Sorry for the short video. The noise in the background is my fan, as it really hot here these days, but it was not easy holding my 7" Samsung Galaxy Tab in my hand, while using the PS3 Controller on my lap."
The PS3 Nintendo DS (NDS) Emulator Alpha Build Demo is posted below with an official release pending.
