    ok guys were all aware of the next 3DS update comming. were getting eshop & virtual console, gameboy, & gameboy color.
    the gameboy color had an IR port.

    & so does the 3DS.

    they both do

    you guys think the Gameboy Color VC games on 3DS games will use the IR as they did on an actualGameboy Color?
    for instance, pokemon silver, gold, crystal mystery gift between others with the game on 3ds & gameboy color.

    It's possible but I doubt it.

    Would be great if they implemented this into the 3DS VC. I have to agree with m3rox that they probably wont implement it.

    Look at the Flag...
    It's only 8-9 games out of thousands of gb games, we don't even know if one of those game will get a 3ds vc release (higly possible for pokemon/mario dx).

    I don't think they'll add such feature (same goes for koro koro kirby and it's sensor).

    I can't think of ANY reason to include an IR sensor on a modern handheld if it wasn't going to be used to backwards compatibility with systems that used one.
