    It's always been for old and new 3ds, in fact the only reason injects is possible is because Nintendo gave some gba vc to old 3ds users who bought the console before the price drop

    You're thinking of SNES. Old 3DS has always been able to play VC GBA cias.

    Actually the real reason is because the old 3DS already had an ARM7 cpu in order to allow hardware GBA emulation.
