    GamePro Info


    A new report by Edge Magazine states that Nintendo will soon launch a DS flash card capable of downloading older Game Boy games.

    Game Boy Virtual Console on DS?
    The move is seen as an effort to combat piracy and bank on the similar success Nintendo has had with Wii's Virtual Console.

    "Before getting too excited," reports Edge, "the [DS flash card] device will launch exclusively for old Game Boy content, initially."

    No launch date was given, though Edge says the arrival is "imminent." Nintendo officials were not immediately available when contacted by GamePro.
