    well
    when the dstwo works
    then its gbaemu will work in ds mode
    if you are thinking about taking advantage of the hardware then it depends if the 3ds mode is hacked
    or maybe gba games will be in virtual console for you to buy like a good little kiddie

    Yea it should be able to handle it fine I think.....the problem now is hacking the 3ds so that a emulator can be made for it....and i hope that doesn't happen for a few years

    The DS/DSL never emulated a GBA. It essentially was a GBA so it didn't need to emulate anything. The slot-2 devices just added memory from GBA cartridges.

    Do I think the 3DS will be able to emulate GBA?

    Yeah, of course. The DSi can so, why not?

    Technically, it is entirely possible. DS and GBA have very similar hardware design, so if perfect DS emulation is possible then GBA emulation should not be a problem neither.

    Why would you NOT want that to happen?
