    Default Genesis emulator?
    Would it be possible to get a Sega Genesis emulator for the iPhone? That was honestly my favorite system back in the day, and I've read that the iPhone processor is over 4 times as fast as the processor used in the Genesis, so it should be pretty easy to do, I'd think.

    Comments/opinions?

    If the psp can emulate the sega, I don't see why not.

    Sweet. Now I just have to hope that someone will do it. Or I can try to learn how to code and do it myself...but we'd probably be on iPhone v4 by then

    EDIT: One thing I was thinking of is buttons, and it may be a problem. Genesis had A, B, and C buttons, and later games supported the controllers with X, Y, and Z buttons, so I don't know how a Genesis emulator would work, unless there was a way to change the settings for the multi-touch.
