Hello all My only past handheld console was a first gen PSP which I didn't like very much in the short time before it failed. I've always liked GBA games especially Pokemon games and so I'm now planning to get a Nintendo device. I'm mainly looking to play older GBA and DS titles and perhaps a few 3DS titles when I can afford them. My question is, if I get a 3DS or 3DS XL and a flash card can I get the ROMs for older games to work. Let me be clear I'm not interested in pirating any of the new 3ds games. Is this realistically possible (ie it doesn't take crazy hacks and is buggy as hell when it decides to work). Sorry if this question has been asked before. I've spent an hour on Google and I've heard all sorts of opinions, some say it's easily done, others say the 3ds doesn't support flash cards or GBA etc... So please help out. Should I be looking for a DS or an older model for GBA support (would prefer a 3ds for newer games in the future)? Thank you.
