I'm curious as to the rationale of those who think yes.

I think so. The 3ds cards are nearly the same and it shouldnt be to much of a problem adding whatever it needs to play them.

Virtual console will have DS games. Assuming Nintendo even sticks with dual screen.

No. 50%-50% chance though.

The better question is when will they stop using cartridges?

As much as I hope so, I kinda doubt it.

I'm leaning towards a yes because:

1. Nintendo handhelds are always BC with their immediate previous generations.
2. 3DS and DS use virtually the same cartridges
3. ARM, as far as I understand it, is backwards compatible.


Which follows that if the next Nintendo handheld is BC with 3DS games, then DS games will also be playable.

I would love to see the 4DS going toe to toe with a DS game.

This.

What I find funny is that disc-format games are less valuable than cartridge-format games as of now.
