I figured, the games might not be available for DS or DS lite, but what if 3DS games could work on DSi/XLs? I mean, if there is a setting to enhance, or even lower and turn off the 3D picture on the new games for 3DS, couldn't you use them for DSi?
The DSiXL is just a bigger DSi, which is an enhanced DS. Just like Gameboy Advance Micro/SP are upgrades of the Gameboy Advance. Can you play DS games on your Gameboy Advance SP? no, just like you can't play them on your Gameboy Advance.

sigh. no, they cannot. the 3DS is a WHOLE NEW system, not just a new version of the ds. the graphics on it are MUCH BETTER than ds graphics. you cant play SNES games on a NES, and you cant play 3DS games on a DS
Probably. The processor is just as fast as the 3DS, but developers haven't utilized it fully yet for fear of alienating DS/DSlite gamers and losing profits. But, painting it as a new system, Nintendo is locking the 3DS carts from playing on the DSi to keep profits and please developers.
Shame, since the 3DS is just a DSi with gimmicky 3D.
