    there is basically an emulator for every system there is even a PlayStation one. now if these work on a tablet is something you will have to find out

    Tablet / Device:
    Archos 101, Viewsonic G-Tablet, Motorola Droid X.... test drove: Augen gentouch 78, Coby Kyros 7015
    The draw back that i see with emulators on the tablets that are out now is the fact that for most of them to be truely playable you have to have a multi-touch screen or have bluetooth (as they have apps on the android market that will allow you to use Wii remotes as input methods for android but they use a bluetooth iterface)
    if you're device allows usb hosting MAYBE you can get by with using a usb game pad??

    they work great on my Moto Droid.. but i haven't even tried on my Gentouch because it doesn't support multitouch, bluetooth or usb hosting... if you have a dveice that overcomes one these then i say they'd work pretty well...

    Hanz: for sure, i love google, but i hadn't gotten a straight answer, will it work. i wanted to know before i bought one but i suppose i must take a leap of faith!

    swould333: VERY good ideas, i will look into moto droid as well, im a big fan of usb hosting.

    Probbiethe1: Yes, for sure, i just wasn't sure if they would work on a tablet.
