    Jus wonderin if it could be possible for the 3ds games to support ds download play content with old ds modeld, having it view on 2d on both consoles, or 2d on the old console and 3d ion the 3ds (ex. mario kart 3d playing multiplayer on 3ds and ds lite)... just a thought. Thankz

    No, it is not possible.

    I think that it would be theoretically possible that Mario Kart 3DS would be able to race against Mario Kart DS, but Ninty would never do that.

    A. Because they would be unable to make any significant changes to the gameplay
    B. Because it would diminish any selling point they had with the game.


    Just...Just get the 3DS

    Not possible, no matter how you look at it. You'd have to design the game in DS/i Mode to get it to be compatible with older DS systems....

    I know, but you would still be able to do ds downlaod play from ds to 3ds because 3ds has backwords compatibility... right? it would be normal on the ds but on the 3ds it will be in 2d with black bars on both sides.

    Yes, the 3DS CAN do DS backwards compatibility so I don't see how Download Play would not work... Unless Nintendo forgot it?

    Yes, the 3DS supports DS download play. But not vice versa.

    And that's all there is to it. This thread should be locked.

The download play will let you select if you want to download a 3ds title or ds. its also on wikipedia that it will hav ds downlaod play

    it has been established that the 3ds can play ds games with the ds and 3ds games with the 3ds
    i thought that was common sense
    i second the need to lock this thread

    Screens != consoles.

    Nollog, did you not read the thread, already posted. Won't make sense to exclude 3ds to ds.

    It does make sense.

    What she is asking is "Can you DS Download Play a 3DS Game to a DS/DS Lite/DSi console?"
    The answer is no.
    It makes sense because the DS/DS Lite/DSi consoles are nowhere near as powerful as a 3DS game would require.

    ds ds : yes
    ds 3ds (ds/i mode) : yes
    3ds ds (3ds mode) : no fucking chance

    hope this clears a few things up...
