Can i play 3DS games on a regular DS/ DSI?

Simply as it says. When the 3DS comes out, will all the games coming out with it and for it be playable on a regular DS or DSI? Or do i have to buy a 3DS to play the 3D games?

You have to buy the 3DS. It's a totally different platform.

u will have to buy a 3DS to play 3DS games. the sticky up top explains alot of the basics.

The 3DS is a brand new console. It is more powerful than the DS.

You can't play Gamecube games on a N64, you can't play PS3 games on a PS2, you can't play 3DS games on a DS
I have nothing sig-worthy to say, but the post just feels wrong somehow without one.

And no one correct my misuse of the word "console" >_>

Have you seen what 3DS games look like?

Can you really fathom for a second that a system that can barely crank out N64 graphics can run that?

No, you cannot play 3DS games on your DS.

There's always one person who asks this.......who honestly thinks like this?

By all means but you'll have to run 3DS games through the new 3DS emulator that's in development for the Atari 2600. Once it gets far along enough with speed and compatibility you can run an Atari 2600 emulator on your DS to run the 3DS emulator and there you go.

Yep, and you can play Wii games on your N64 too!
