What old platforms work best for emulation?

Recommended Posts

What old consoles and PC devices would you suggest I use to make a emulationstation type of thing? I would like to supe up either an older PC, an old Xbox or even an Xbox 360 to see about putting emulators on it. Do you guys think it'd be a good idea to use an Xbox? I know many people mod their Xbox to make it into an emulator for retro games. But I figure a PC with more power would be better and I could even emulate Xbox and PS2 games. What would you suggest to use? I know some people use Wii's and Wii U's, but I don't have either of those on hand, and the Wii U has kinda gone up in price as of late. 

Any suggestions?

Nintendo has claimed rights for their own emulator for mobile platforms. So be aware that the legality of emulators is starting to phase into the red zone.

Personally, I wish companies would claimed rights for the ROMs and not the emulators, we could then buy the ROMs and play it with already existing emulators.

Outside of old PCs and older android tablets like the Nvidia Shield Tigre K1 or jailbroken Apple devices (I used to play Mario on my jailbroken Ipad), I don't think of any other platforms that were great for emulation.
