I wonder if u can play NDS games on a 3DS

KingArthur13th says:

YES!!! just at my range. Since the DSI (when first released) was like $180 so i’m not too surprised to see this price especially for all the software they put into this. the only problems I have with the 3DS is that the battery life is kinda short (even shorter if you play it using 3DS made games). people should be happy that it’s not $300 and besides, a lot of people usually pay about $250 for the PSP.

p.s – you can play ds and dsi games on it
