I know the 3DS is capable of playing old DS games, but I was looking at buying Yoshis Island DS to play on my new 3ds, but a couple sellers on ebay are claiming that it won't work.

Is there some sort of list of games that will or won't work on the 3DS?

only games that dont work on 3ds are ones that need accessories in the gba slot (smile training, guitar heroes, etc)


or if they are bootleg copies.

If the Ebay seller tells you it doesn't play on the 3DS, it's 99.9% a bootleg.

Bootleg sellers on Ebay are usually easy to identify. They have tons of bad feedback, they use stock images, and they sell the games in really large quantities.

It is a pirated copy. It won't play on 3DS because only a few DS flash cards work with it. He is probably making these on older (cheaper) DS flash kits, which is why they won't work on the 3DS.
