They could just simply add GBA games to the eshop of the current 3DS. After all, I got some GBA games on my system already.

I gotta lay off the games. They're starting to affect my work performance.
I keep trying to 100% my job, and aim for meaningless achievements.

Hell no, that piece of crap isn't account based and thus is just Nintendo ripping you off.

If that's the only draw to it, I'll just use my GBA(?).

I'd rather use my actual GBA with my actual GBA game collection, so I don't have to pay for something that already exists.

Not being account based doesn't mean they are ripping you off. As long as you've got 1/8th of a brain in your head and register your 3DS with Club Nintendo, all of your purchases are tracked. If something happens to your 3DS you just call Nintendo and give them the new S/N and they transfer the purchases from the original 3DS S/N to the new one. Technically there is an account system, its called Club Nintendo.

And just because they make a full account system that you log onto on your 3DS doesn't mean they'll let you use your purchase on more than one system.

Anyway, I wouldn't buy the new handheld specifically for that reason, no. I still have a GBA and the Game Boy Player for Game Cube.
