Does the Wii add motion controls to GameCube games?
I'm getting sick of these stupid questions.
This isn't the same thing. Think about it. Your playing a regular DS game on your 3DS and you flip the 3D switch on. Would it change anything?
I believe if it were to change what you see, it wouldn't be too interesting and possibly rather pointless to do so. --- No one agrees with you. This is GameFAQs. Even if people really do agree with you, they still don't. - Thunder_Armor
As far as using 3D in games without implementing anything new in the game itself, nVidia graphics cards have been able to add 3D to pretty much any PC game (with a 3D world, of course) just from a simple driver upgrade. It's not very optimized, and it doesn't work right for some games, but the developers of the games didn't have to touch a single piece of code on their part.
Things like motion controls have to be specifically added in just because it's not obvious to a computer that a vertical motion = slash of the player's sword. Someone has to add the code that takes the input and makes something out of it for the computer to use. With video, once the image has been created and processed, it's not the computer's problem anymore. It doesn't care what the pixels mean, it just knows how to send them out. If there's already code for that, then all 3D really requires is that it renders and sends another, slightly different image, and the hardware takes care of actually displaying it. --- "The fault finder will find fault even in paradise." - Henry David Thoreau
