Play 3ds games on the wii u = me happy.

Don't say it can't\won't happen, super gameboy and gameboy player says H.

3ds games could work with Wii U games by having something about the 3ds be displayed on the pad while the wii u game is on the main screen.

also just playing the 3ds through wii u on or off the pad would kick ass.
getting players to buy 3ds games will eventually get them to buy a 3ds and vise versa.

If you have a 3ds and want them to be played on a larger screen you would pick up a wii u.

Also to force you to buy a 3ds the wii u can tease you about games found in the 3ds store but you'll need a 3ds to play them that can also interact with the wii u and again vise versa.

brilliant tactic!
It's a win-win idea.

It seems like something that might exist. Wii U has everything needed to play DS and 3DS games, if used with a 3DTV it would even be able to display 3DS games in 3D, since the top screen is the 3D one.


Though some games might be a little awkward, particularly ones that expect you to treat the DS screen like one screen that has double height (Yoshi's Island DS, Contra 4, etc).

Yes, because having the Super Game Boy meant SNES was a glorified Game Boy, and the Gameboy Player showed us all that GC was really just a clunky GBA that couldn't play GBA Videos.


Right.

I've never seen the appeal in playing handheld games on the big tv. Doesn't make sense to me, don't they look worse?

Not at all - if anything, they look better.

Than comparable console games, sure. Than they did on the handheld systems? Not usually. Super Gameboy gave you colour (for certain games) and let you alter the palettes for others, in addition to having much better contrast than the original gameboy did. The GB Player offers more straightforward emulation, but my GBA doesn't work all that well anymore so I'm glad for the option.

Ah fair enough, I've never used one. I still don't see the point in it though >_>

You had it right originally. They look tons worse on a bigger screen.

You can't take a game made for a little tiny ultra-low res Nintendo screen and blow it up for a big TV screen and have it look good. It's not like the addons that let you do that somehow make it higher resolution or add anti aliasing or anything like that. The bigger screen always shows the flaws a lot more than the small screen.
