ManInTheMask here!

It's nice to play ROMs on a PC, but what about playing any ROM, anytime and anywhere? You'd need the right device/emulator to do so!

Here's one that I know of so far. For all you Wii users that want the upcoming Wii U, DON'T GET RID OF YOUR WII!!!!! If you have access to the Homebrew Channel, and downloads the VBA GX app to it, you can save ROMs to the ROMs folder, and play them on your Wii! The Homebrew Browser should have other emulators too. However, there's a wierd skip that randomly happens during your play. CRAZY HUH?!

Sadly, that's the only emulator I know of so far.......

HOWEVER!

If any of you people know a device that can play ROMs on any video game handheld or console system, PLEASE let me know in the COMMENTS!

Thank you and have a nice day!

Update 10/22/11:

I have heard that you can play GBA Roms on an iPod Touch or iPhone as long as it's jailbroken I believe. For more information on how to do this, goto YouTube and find out for yourself!

By grabbing yaself a R4, you can then go download Lameboy.nds and any Gb/Gbc rom it let's you play and Gameboy rom anywhere. (Gba not included)

And r4's can do SNES and NES too.

EZ-flash advanced, I, II, III, and IV are all flash carts that work for playing hacks on GBA. EZ-flash V and EZ-flash VI will also work for GBA games, but only if you hav the 3 in 1 expantionpack, and a ds lite. For dsi the is an mp3 player homebrew gba emulator, but I don't have one, so I couldn't tell you how well it would work.

@nintendork15 I can mostly emulate nes and snes games. Some nes games don't work, but they are few and far between. Some also have glitches, like ninja gaiden. Almost all snes games have some graphical glitches, but quite a few are unplayable. I'd go find SNEmulDS's compat list, but I'm too lazy.

So far, so good! I'm looking for more suggestions! Remember, it doesn't have to be GBA only!

What's the name of the DSi Mp3 Emulator? I've been searching for one of those for a while.

There's always the Supercard DSTWO, for GBA/DS games, plus GB/GBC via Lameboy.

I use a Dingoo A320. It's a ton cheaper than a DSi after shopping around, and straight out of the box after the correct patching (just get GBATA and patch it for SRAM/Clock fixes), everything works pretty perfect, far better than VBA ever did for me... well, outside of the Emerald based games. So far, there isn't an RTC patch for those. But if you don't mind internal battery messages on Emerald and never seeing mirage island, it works great other than that.

Well, I have my AceKard 2i for testing DS games, my Wii for that usage, and an EZ Flash 3-in-1 for GBA gaming. It's far better than any emulator.

Well, where do i start.

My PC.
I have, besides normal PC games, of witch i have to many tbh...
Dolphin for Wii and NGC.
PCSX/PCSX2 for ps1 and ps2 games.
Various Emulators for older games, NES/N64 ect.

On my PSP3000 i have CFW (forgot version, sorry)
I have a Photofast Magic cr 5400, lets you add two micoSD cards (2 slots), so i have plenty of room on the PSP.
I play PSP games of course, i have a gba emulator on it, and a N64 emulator on it.
I know it can play MAME/NES/DS and loads others too.

I have a DS Phat with a SupercardDSTwo with a 8GB microsd
Lots of ds games of course, it also plays older MAME games, older sega games(eg. saturn), nes, SNES, GB, GBC, GBA roms.

And i have a jail broken 32gb 3rd gen Ipod Touch to play itouch games.
I know it can also play gba, gbc, nes, snes, n64 (kinda) older sega games, and some MAME games ( i think MAME support is lacking atm)
No DS and no PSP on iTouch.

When it's all said and done, really the only games I CAN'T play are, ps3, xbox, xbox 360, and 3ds, since these all lack emulators atm.

Also if youre wondering my PC specs.
MOBO: Asus M4A78-PRO
CPU: AMD Phemon II Calisto 550 3.1Ghz BIOS OC to 3.4GHZ
Ram: 4gb
Video: ATI 5670

Sony based platforms:

PSP: Has many different and powerful emulators, easy to hack. Emulates Most systems pre-2001 perfectly. Backups can be played with ease. (Will probably make a guide on this) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

PS3: Can be hacked if jailbroken, SNES, NES, Genesis/Megadrive, all gameboys emulated. Backups are played easily. Hacking process is kind of annoying if you have firmware +3.55

PS2: Emulates some systems decently, not recommended. Backups can be burned and played with a mod chip/disc

Nintendo Based Platforms:

DS: Flash carts available to play your NDS roms right on one cart. Carts can be as cheap as $5.00. Get the NES or SNES emulator, stay away from any other.

Nintendo Gamecube: I believe it can emulate NES, Genesis/Megadrive and SNES okay. Backups can be burned and played with a mod chip.

Nintendo Wii: Homebrew channel is easy to install, emulators are easy to set up. Burning and playing backups, however, is extremely difficult. Use for emulators only. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Microsoft Based Platforms:

X-Box: Relatively easy hacking process, if you have the requirements. There's tuts all over the internet for this. Emulation is amazing, I believe there's also a port of M.U.G.E.N. for it.

X-Box 360: Ohhhh boy. The 360. Hacking process is enough to drive you insane. STAY AWAY

Sorry I didn't see your message sooner...
http://gbatemp.net/topic/281715-gba-emulator-for-dsi-dsi-entry/
Ihis is a link to ichichfly's gba emulator for ds(i). Please note that it won't currently work for much, and is very slow,but that's why it's only qa beta. I was kinda hoping that it was going to progress faster, but no such luck seems to have occured. Still, it's pretty amazing that he's gotten as far along with it as he has.

no emulator needed.
I don't now if this will work (made up on the spot) , but try burning to a disc and making/hacking a syncing devise to put cd data into an empty gba/nds carchrage. you can buy empty cartreges online.

I've heard of VBag (paid) for phones. I personally use Meboy (GBC) on my Nokia. I use my iTouch for GBA and my computer for DS. That's about it.

For iPod touch, iPhone, and probably iPad you can jailbreak your device and then download gpsphone. with the original source it costs $20 but if you download other sources you can get a racked version for free

There is a Desmume port to the PSP, but it's very inefficient and awkward to control. You'd be better off getting a flashcard or using an emulator.

For playing roms on your DS:

- Supercard DSTwo
or
- AceKard 2i

Has an emulator for Gameboy and NES that runs on both the DSTwo and the AceKard 2i.
There also are emulators for GBA and SNES which run only on the DSTwo (There's SNEmulDS that allow you to play SNES on AK2i, but it's not worth the trouble until it gets updated by those guys.)

Playing roms on your GBA:

- EZ-Flash IV
or
- EZ-Flash III
or
- M3 Perfect

You're going to have to patch the GBA roms through the device's patcher software before adding them to your miniSD/internal memory.
There are emulators for NES and GB, which are PocketNES and Goomba Color.
(I never tried either of them, so I can't tell how good they work; however, they're supposed to work pretty great and are your best options.)

Is there any reason we should stay away from Lameboy and NDSGBA?

You forgot to mention people are going to be limited to a 2GB microSD card as well as being unable to run the cart on a DSi/3DS.

(Also: Ewwww, R4.)

I have recently discovered that Lameboy can play hacks! I didn't know if this was well known or not I just thought I'd mention it.

I though they had mods that allowed for support for microsds bigger than 2gb. Also, the R4 team were some of the first (if not the first) to get a card funning on 3DS. Granted that if your talking about the original R4, it's completely incompatible with the 3DS, but when was the last time you heard of someone buying an original R4 and not an R4i or R4 Gold? I do agree that something like the supercard, ez-flash, or acekard is better though. That is unless you're like me who bought one of the first 1000 EZ-flash Vis made. Those thing were unable to be updated, and were really just an upgrade of the V+. They got recalled. XD

spoiler for anyone who wants to check and see if they have this "limited edition cart".
Spoiler:

does your cart look like this?

do the hardware and firmware all say 1111? If so, you've got a crap card.
