I for one would love this!
Cool idea, but highly doubtful.
Would require 3ds emulation --likely could never happen with the slowish WiiU cpu.
Would've been cool though.
I for one think that Nintendo can some how make it work with the DS games 3DS idk but it would be a cool idea to play your ds games on the big screen just like the gamecube player :}
If we're lucky, maybe we will get a ds player (game boy included), not a chance for the 3ds at least not for a couple of years.
Same hacking wise, if not longer.
Even though that comment is only from Katsuhiro Harada time with the wii u, it still isn't that slow. Gees.
once homebrew come to the wii u (more than likely a long time if like the 3ds)
there wiil be a nds emulater like the wii
That would be cool.
But completely implausible.
Yes. And how many DS games worked on that emulator...?
That's right, near none.
That would be super awesome!...if they did it. If we're lucky, maybe they'll make an add-on in the future, like they did for the N64/GameCube.
3DS definitely no. Nintendo would lose sales of 3DSs as people could just play it on their Wii U. DS possibly but I think the same logic can be applied since Nintendo advertised the ability to play DS games on the 3DS.
I like this idea. And like the title says "Wouldnt this be cool", I agree.
The fuck is this thread all about?
Why not let it be some sort of 3ds>WIIu connectivity
with the top screen on the tv and the touch screen on the 3ds or the gamepad?
Never stopped the Gamecube Player.
Technicalities aside, I can see how DS games could be played like this via Virtual Console, but I doubt Nintendo would shoot themselves in the foot with the 3DS.
I'm sorry, but it is the Game Boy Player. Why are people calling it that?
Technicalities included, do you think it is possible by just filling up the pixels?
I guess Nintendo could have the 3ds stream to the console.
Pixels bla bla ..3D bla bla blah
Still would be a cool, much appreciated, add-on
I firmly believe that Nintendo, being in posession of all 3DS development-related resources would be entirely capable of creating a 3DS emulator on the current WiiU hardware - despite popular opinion, the 3DS isn't *that* strong specs-wise - it's somewhere between a Gamecube and a Wii. They won't do it though, as they're actively selling 3DS hardware.
If the games were to be processed externally and simply displayed on the WiiU, there is no external slot to connect a so-called "Player". Perhaps via a serial cable and a 3DS, but I doubt it - where would you connect it on the 3DS itself? To the cartridge slot? Even if it did processing externally for the WiiU instead of using emulation, that's a very crude solution - too "Nintendon't" if you ask me.
DS games on the otherhand are within reach and a DS emulator will probably be the first thing after "hello world" to pop up after the hardware is fully homebrewable, since the setup is perfect.
"Pixels" aren't a problem when you can implement hardware-assisted resizing and filters.
I've been thinking about this for a while. Nintendo does have a history of releasing adapters to play handheld games on the TV:
Super Game Boy for SNES
Game Boy Player for Gamecube.
Both of these devices contain hardware of the handheld it plays, so I believe a new player would also have the hardware.
True, not having an external slot for the player could be a problem. Would USB work though? Also, wasn't it mentioned once that the 3DS might be usable as a Wii U screen? If that is the case, imagine if the 3DS could send the screen data wirelessly to the Wii U, no secondary player-peripheral needed. How awesome would that be?
Play your 3DS on-the-go, bring it home, put it on the table in standby. Wireless link with the Wii U, and play your 3DS/DS games on the TV, with the Wii U gamepad working as the bottom touch-screen.
The 3DS doesn't have a slot it could use though, as far as I know, the one it has is merely for the charger, like the DS's, DS Lite's, DSi's and DSi XL's slots.
