I don't see any expansion or input ports on the 3ds for this to work besides the IR port.

Right. I am almost positive it sends the controls through IR and has its own Li ion battery which functions as a cradle

Yeah I can see it having its own battery. Something like a watch battery, not like the batter in the 3DS, something weaker that doesnt need to put out a lot of power that will literally last for years.

As far as connection, yeah infrared is likely. They put that thing in the 3DS for a reason, possibly knowing they might need to do something like this one day, which makes them smart n stuff.

Maybe the power socket acts like a usb.

Dont think it can transfer data through it. Ive never heard of a power port being used that way.

The PSP 3000's USB port can be used to charge it.

Thats different, thats a USB port than can accept power through it. This isnt a USB port. It's a power port that MAY NOT be able to transfer data. They are 2 totally different things.
