In-camera software?
I have seen there are free emulators /games and other applications like mp3 players on some Kodak and Hp CAmeras. Is there any available fun software for the sony cybershots? The sony DSC-p8 i own, has a much bigger (in terms of resolution ) screen than most digital cameras and features sound. I dont know about the processor power though. It would be great to use the camera as a gameboy-like handheld to play games or mp3. If the hardware part of the camera is capable enough couldnt somebody write an emulator?

if you read through these a little you will se that one of the biggest complaints about digital cameras is power consumption just trying to take pictures. you want to put games on them too!!!? :shock:.

battery is not an issue
Forget the battery power! I am asking if it can be done. I dont care even if it lasts 15 minutes it would be nice. you can allways use the AC power cable.
THeoreticaly i believe its possible, for a device that can play a decent video, to also run a game emulator! As you know in the review mode the camera can run up to 180 minutes.
