We can download N64 games on the Wii and we'll most likely be able to download GBA games on the 3DS. Do you think Nintendo will always continue the pattern of making their new systems backwards compatible one generation and making games from all generations prior to that downloadable? I would really love this. Nintendo would make sure that their games are never forgotten.
I can't wait for Super Mario 3D, Mario Kart 3D, Paper Mario 3D, Luigi's Mansion 2,
Kid Icarus: Uprising, Kirby Mass Attack, Kirby Wii, and Skyward Sword!

I bet the 4DS will have this. 5DS for sure. 3DS Lite is unlikely, but 3DSi is a possibility.

Since the carts are basically the same, if the next Portable Nintendo allowes backwards comp. it's probably for both DS and 3DS and no downloadable games will be needed since they can still go around as retail games. Even if they change the cart next gen. If they don't allow backwards comp., which seems unlikely, it's possible.DS games can withstand a bit longer I think, GBA games are definately VC material next gen, if not this one.
