Sony pretty much thought hacking the PS3 was impossible.
The internet did it anyway.
I have no doubt that, eventually, it'll be commonplace to run a current-gen OS from one console on a different one.
My Wii is connected to the family TV downstairs and is connected to a CRT so only composite cables are available. So I'm turned off playing it. But on my PS3 in my own room with my HDTV connected via component? Would be much more convenient for my Wii playing =P
All of this talk of cross compatibility with the processor architectures is very enlightening news indeed.

Secondly, there's two main types of emulation; Decoding (which is what most emulators do) and Interpretation. Being that all the calls in the wii's cpu are present in the cell, we know we can emulate through interpretation (HUGE speed advantage). Sony has used this same type of emulation for PS2->PS3 porting (PSN titles).
I'm not sure why the author chose Dolphin, as it's written for x86 architecture, and not PPC; seems like it'd be more headaches than coding one from scratch (although, porting is a fairly loose term, and maybe he's unfamiliar with Wii structure or something).
But Wii emulation on the PS3 is more than possible; if PS3 Dolphin (for whatever reason) doesn't come out, I'm sure the 360 emu (diff author/project) will still arrive.

On another note, since both the Wii CPU and PS3 CPU are PowerPC based it should be no problem getting the Wii emu to run Wii and GameCube games at 100%.
The GameCube CPU is basically the same CPU found in Macintoshes with a G3 PowerPC CPU. The Wii CPU is just a souped up GC CPU.
Plus since the Wii Remote is Bluetooth, it should be able to connect to the PS3. Also you can just use a wireless sensor bar. The reason the candles work is because the only reason you plug the wired sensor bar into the Wii is to give the sensor bar power to light up the collection of 10 inferred LEDs. If you open up a sensor bar you will se that it is nothing more than 10 inferred LEDs, 5 on each side.
I have an old N64/PS to USB adapter laying around so hopefully I can use my old N64 controller (although I prefer to use the GameCube controller for N64 games.
I would rather have a separate N64 emu as there are only a handful of N64 games on the Virtual console. Don't forget the games that Rare made like Perfect Dark or Conker's Bad Fur day which will never see the light in VC.
On another note, it would be interesting to see if someone takes on a project to emulate the 360 on the PS3 since the 360 CPU is also PowerPC based. But this would years away since an Xbox 360 emu does not even exist.
After the Wii emu is done, the next project should be getting the Xbox 1 emu ported. Since Microsoft basically abandoned Xbox 1 users
The PS3 should be renamed "The All-In-One Console".
I have actually dreamed a day when I could play PSX, PS2, GC, Wii, Xbox 1 games on the same console.
The PS3 scene has come a long way in such a short time. I can't wait for what the future holds.

Also by using SNEEK, emulating the ENTIRE WiiOS shouldn't be too hard….
Xbox1 emulation may be a little difficult though, its Intel based and PS3 is PowerPC based and cross platforming like that is still a problem….speaking of that, why haven't they made a Wii emulator for G5 Macs? The PowerMac is VERY powerful and could emulate a Wii VERY easily with the Dual CPU, tons of RAM, etc..but thats another topic….
I do see FULL 100% speed Wii emulation on the PS3 soon (hell, it does a pretty good job on Windows PC's, i can play Mario Galaxy almost 100% speed on Dolphin)
Xbox1 emulation…may be a little iffy because its Intel based…besides, you can get Xbox1 SO cheap, i have seen then on Craigslist for $40
Have you ever heard of Virtual PC for the Mac? It could run Windows XP quite nicely on a G4 Mac. You could even play some games in Windows XP too. My Grandpa has a dual core Power Mac G4 1.25GHz and he runs some flight simulator game on Virtual PC in Windows XP. It IS possible. Since the Xbox 1 only had a 733MHz CPU and an 800MHz Mac G4 was equivalent to about an Intel P4 at 2GHz. Plus both the Xbox 1 and PS3 use an NVIDIA GPU.

I still have my Xbox 1, I would just rather have 1 or 2 consoles that I can do everything on. I have also run out of inputs on my TV, between Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and TV set top box, plus I have no more room in my entertainment center.
The more I can do with less the better. Imagine being able to play every single console, handheld ever made on one console (minus the 360).
We also need a PSP emu too. Should be easy enough.
As for not making a PowerPC version of Dolphin, the author could not get anyone to donate a PowerMac G5 so he could port it. At the time, they were not cheap at around $3000
