Configuring a cartridge slot in a handheld to fit all these different types of cartridges would just get bulky. Then again, ive never owned a handheld (except sega gamegear which i sledom played) so I dont know - but Im considering buying a DS.
    That's not entirely correct, the gba does play on a ds, and the gbc doesn't even thouh they have almost identical cartridges, nintendo didn't make it backwards compatible because they would need an extra coprocessor wich older gb games need to run.

    most of you should still realise that the ds is just a by product of nintendos handeld gaming. Didnt you ever wonder why there still selling GBA games and not focusing on the ds alone
    The next gameboy (code name, gameboy evolution) will hopefully be fully backwards compatable if possible.
    (it would be great if ds games were included too!)
