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.
