    Yeah well I've just recently learned that gateway can launch VC titles quite easily just like any other games.

    So my question is, does anyone think it'd possible to have a rom wrapper for the 3DS to launch roms (NES/GB/GBC/GBA) through VC ? Just like there was a PSOne iso wrapper for the PSP ?

    Would it require more knowledge about the console and its apps ?

    sure, it's very possible, smea had a custom gb rom running on his 3ds in vc, at the moment it would require more knowledge sure, unless he shares how he did it, today :)
    so sure, once we have custom vc games (which is not public information), we could convert them into .3ds format (which is not public information)

    so, it's possible, but not for lowly people like us yet ;)

    Why only talking about Gateway ? MT-CARD can launch VC game too...

    Following that logic, why even talk about cards? It's not even bound to cards. Hell, an unhacked 3DS can play VC games. The only thing that matters is how badly they broke existing functionality with all their kernel hackery :)

    I'm sure someone will figure this out soon enough. I'm happy enough playing VC titles through a DS mode flashcard -> emulator though ^^

    Come on romanocry you don't have to run around every thread being the defender of MT, I know they gave you a free card but you don't have to keep jumping on anyone who doesn't mention them.....and you know.......MT only play the one VC game if we want to bring MT up

    Maybe cause the OP owns a gateway? Because it's the card that ids recommended to buy and not MT?
    Seriously dude...

    It is possible, but there is no release tool yet (by smealum).
