Why does the 3DS have an infrared port? The only topic I found on these boards pertaining to it contained speculation.
So now that it's been 5 months or so, does anyone know why yet? o.o

Maybe we'll be able to use the 3DS with certain Wii games?

That's be interesting. o.o

I wonder if the 3DS has the capability to be used as a Wiimote?

Maybe so that next gen Pokémon games will not need special cartridges and such.

I just assumed it would be for GBC VC titles that used the feature. For example, there's that Pikachu pedometer game that had an IR port for getting items in G/S/C I think. However, that's incredibly limited use so I'm guessing they have other special intentions.

Cheap, wireless peripherals. See the new Spyro game for 3DS.
See Pokewalker needing a special DS cartridge. See personal training walking needing a special DS cartridge. See these types of games not needing special cartridges now on the 3DS.
If the game gets a bad score, bash the game; if the game gets a good score, bash the reviewer. - stanthelovebot
