It is fully backwards compatible with DS games. Put a DS cart in there and it works the same as if it was in a DS. The screen is a higher resolution so it applies some sort of filter in upscaling it, but the effect isn't noticeable most of the time.
u shouldnt need convincing. all ill say is that there is only 3 worthwhile games right now on the 3ds. 2 great games are coming out in a couple weeks. res wont be out till round november. look at the games not the system if you wanna play the games get the system
