    Since Nintendo hasnt done this yet its just up in theory i fits doable or not, whats your thoughts/ideas?

    if its doable you think at one point they'll do something like it (ex like for Limited edition runs of teh Pokemon Gen 1 Games commin out soon).

    i have no idea if Anything like Cart access is Locked out when the 3DS runs its Virtual Console software or not so like i sad atm i dont know if its doable based soly on they havent done it YET.

    I doubt they would put VC on cards because
    1. It would cost them money
    2. Paying $2-$12 on cartridges wont make nintendo alot of money so they wont do it.

    Ultimate NES Remix already uses the NES emulator, so there's no reason that carts could not run VC games.

    That just leaves GBA VC games, which Nintendo has not seemed interested in since the ambassador games were released. It seems like Nintendo could write a function for a cart to use AGB_Firm (if one does not already exist), but that is the only limit that makes sense.

    In a wierd sense, it is doable. I mean compilations of old games keep getting released on newer systems. So it's not something new.

    But it doesn't necessarily mean that it will use Nintendo's emulator for it. And doesn't it lose the point of VC?

    What's the point? The possibility of VC games on Sky3DS or something?

    Yeah, probably. At least NES and GB/C.

    If you can convert .3ds to .cia I think the file formats are close enough to be able to run them as carts.
