I still don't understand why we can't play 3DS games on Wii U

The TV acts like the top screen, and the gamepad is the touchscreen. And you can't use the 3D argument because we now have a 2DS.

Because they're two different systems? Two very, very different systems?

I wouldn't be surprised if it happens at some point. Sooner than later if the Wii U fails to establish its own ecosystem. The Gamecube being boosted up by the entire gameboy legacy increased its value greatly.

What's alarming, is why he still doesn't understand why.
Shouldn't be rocket science that the 3DS is stilling well enough that they don't need to add a lower priced attachment to the system that's selling lower to get more 3DS game sales. Anyone who owns a 3DS already isn't going to just run out and buy a Wii U and the attachment. I really don't think Nintendo made more SNES sales from the Super Gameboy, and they didn't sell more Gamecubes with the GBA attachment.

Increasingly yes.
Between cross buy and the VitaTV, there is certainly a solution for people wanting to play Vita games on the TV.

Nintendo doesn't want to copy Sony yet again

I just want a way to play DS/3DS games on a TV without piracy, since I really can't stand handhelds. Is that too much to ask?

Sony gives you the option of doing this. It's too bad Nintendo likes to limit consumers... :c
