    Could it be as simple as a firmware update for a cart or is the hardware just not in them to play 3ds roms?

    3dbrew reports that the communication protocol is totally different between DS and 3DS carts (I theorized this earlier, but now it's confirmed).

    So no, wait for a 3DS flash cart.
