    Im under the impression that it needs USB connectivity which the DS lacks, they could make some sort of adaptor but that's kind of pointless since you could just buy another supported console that has another use

    Because its TOTALLY POSSIBLE to connect a USB cable to the DS Charger Port. Its also TOTALLY POSSIBLE that it won't just destroy your DS' charging unit forever.*

    Nope. There's no way to do that.

    I dont think the NDS has the required hardware (USB).
    And a USB charger does not count btw.

    Much higher chance to see this ported to the PSP.

    DSSerial could possibly be made to work with it, but that is the only option, and it's highly unlikely anyone will bother IMO, because of the presumably very small number of people who own a PS3, a DS or DS Lite AND a DSSerial. There is no other way a DS could be used.

    PSP, possibly. DS, very unlikely, if not impossible.
