    I was wondering about that because I played some 3DS games and they really don't seem any bigger than the game for a NDSL/NDSi.
    Lego star wars III is just the same game, just with the "3D-ness" extra.
    And the one (forgot name) where you are this guy who flies around in a plane/hang-glider/jet-pack is really small.
    So, would it be possible to emulate games that don't have this new motion sensor on a flash-card for an older DS [​IMG] ? (sans 3D, of course)

    Are you trolling or something? As my fellow 'temper has told you; no. It will and is never going to be possible.

    Yeah, but only if you wish REALLY REALLY HARD and jump into a black hole at 66 miles per hour with OVER 9000 JIGGAWATTS of power flowing through your veins while holding your normal DS. [​IMG]

    Some possibilities:

    1. You clearly haven't seen the 3DS versions of Lego Star Wars 3 or Pilotwings
    2. You have really bad eyesight.
    3. You are not aware that the 3DS is more than a 3D version of the DS.
    4. You are dumb.
    5. You are trolling.

    I hope for the sake of humankind that is the 5th one and if so...you are as funny as Bobby Davro.

    Those are the most likely ones.


    So, no. You can't. It's like emulating the GameCube with an N64.

    Pft I guess you're not in the exclusive club where Bob (of Bobs game fame) sent copies of his N64 flash cart that played GC isos out to those who truly believe in his shit vision? [​IMG]

    it does not matter how small or underpowered a game for any console is, when you ask to emulate a console to play said game you're trying to emulate(which needs more power than whats emulating to work) you need a console/pc which is capable of having many times over the base specs of the other console, its like trying to make a ps3 emulator to play ps3 version of plant vs zombies. Its impossible, while you can play the DS port of the game "Designed" for the DS the ps3 one wont run. While Lego star-wars has a DS and 3ds version the 3ds version actually looks better and runs smoother thanks to the 3d enhancements and the beefier CPU, the game wasn't designed to take the 3ds itself that high because the game was actually intended for the DS so you can say the 3ds one is just an enhanced version of the same game running on better hardware and programed to use it(albeit not to its max power) your DS wont emulate 3ds games but it will run ports of 3ds games, of course dont expect every company to trow out their games with ports for both consoles, its best to just start thinking on getting a 3ds if you wanna play 3ds titles.

    nobody wants emulator 3ds, everyone wants a flashcart! There are not many teams who are working over (supercard, m3 team, r4 ....) so there 's little hope. As you saw, the new Nintendo Wii console u can not read DVD and Blu-ray is an anti piracy

    I don't think it's an Anti-Piracy measure,Nintendo just doesn't want to pay Sony for Blu-Ray.

    Anyways,emulating would be possible but at a horrible speed.
