Wifi Capabilities

So it looks like the 3DS will support WPA.

Do you think the games will actually work with WPA or will it be like the Dsi?

I don't know, but the fact the original DS forced me to switch pissed me off quite a bit.
So bad, not even Naruto would believe it.

The fact that the DSi itself could connect with WPA but the game paks couldn't made me rage.

That's why I haven't picked up my DS in a year.

it's going to be the same
it's very unlikely that they'll be making a wrapper for wifi communication from old nds games to work with wpa/2

You just have to practice leading your shots. ^_^

If that's true I'll be pissed.

Meanwhile I'll just hype with everyone else and wait and see.

I hope you understand that the new 3DS games will work with it. It's only old DS ones that won't.

Yes. I'm talking about the 3DS games that are to be released. You think they'll work with WPA?

Of course they will. 3DS games will work with WPA. The 3DS uses all the capabilities of the 3DS system when playing a 3DS game. This includes the WiFi security compatibility.

The only reason the DSi couldn't do it for DS games is because the DSi becomes a DS after starting the game. Therefore nothing new in the system like WPA worked with the old DS games. So 3DS won't do WPA on any current or previous DS game due to the same issue.
