I would hope at least playing old DS games. I don't know why they would take away the GBA feature.

How many systems are backwards compatible 2 gens? No. Though ambassadors get 10 GBA games free, and I'd imagine they'll add GBA games to the Virtual Console at some point.

It can play DS games, without the 3D effect.

Nintendo dropped GBA compatibility in 2008, so no.

This isn't a joke topic, I don't play the DS as much. All I play is Pokemon and some GBA games on the second generation DS. I mostly play Wii, Xbox 360, and orginial Xbox.

I use my GBA SP for classic Game Boy Color games. I think I should sell my old Game Boy color system. It sucks without a back light. I'm only keeping it because of the possbility of using the IR sensor. And for what, swapping goodies in Pokemon Silver using Mystery Gift? Lame...
