    Things The Ds Is Missing

    I Sold My Gameboy Color, My Gameboy Advance, And My Gameboy Advance Sp To Save Up For A Ds And A Couple Of Games Thinking That The DS Could Play All The Games Of Every Gameboy Before It. When I Bought It I Tried Sticking An Old Zelda Game From The Gameboy Color And It Wouldnt Fit. Do You Think The DS Should've Been Able To Play Gameboy and Gameboy color games? I Now Know That if It Were Able to play these games it would probably be bulkier than it already is. and im talking about the original ds not the cooler ds lite

    yes, all DS's needed to be completely backward combatible. i tried to put in an old GB game and it didnt workso i just use my SP for GB games. i still want it to work in my DS.
    When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much screwed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    Eagles may soar but weasles don't get sucked into jet engines.

    Its harder to physically design a backward compatible cartridge system because as the technology changes, the interface for the cartridges will change. Kinda like how DDR works on 184 pin and ddr2 works on 240 pin. And as more data is needed on a cartridge game, they may become bulkier or differently shaped. 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.
