    Just wondering if anyone has tried a Wacom Bamboo capacitive stylus on the 3DS or DS?

    It should work like a finger press on much more precise while not being made of hard plastic like the stylus pens for the 3DS and DS.

    The only thing I thinking is it might not be very good for games that stylus movemtn across the touch screen like the Zelda series on the DS or the Theatrhythm Final Fantasy series on the 3DS being rubber and all it may not be as slick as the plastic 3DS/DS stylus.

    Should still be better than finger presses though and more slick.

    it should not work since those stylus are designed for capacitive screens, not resistive

    Thanks for a very straight answer just needed it to be confirmed, guess I'll just stick to my initial plan and get an extra DSi XL external stylus (the bigger one) from the Nintendo parts store once the New 3DS XL gets release in NA.
