    Please bring DS and 3DS games to the Wii U

    I think it would be awesome, and maybe not that hard to implement. Thoughts?

    They put GBA games on the 'cube, so I doubt the difficulty and time spent on makin' DS games Wii U compatible would outweigh the profits. 'Specially since they can pull extra VC profits on DS games no longer in production.

    As for 3DS games, that's a whole other deal.

    Portable games wouldn't feel the same if they weren't portable anymore.

    Console games are the exact opposite.

    Ain't no truth t' that at all. The only thing that'd change is the fact ya don't have portable convenience.

    A different controller does little t' change the game, so long as you've the same buttons. Usin' the Gamepad as the touch screen would perfectly emulate a DS game, although the quality of images seen on the Gamepad's screen might be questionable due to size scaling... I think that's the only real issue Ninty would have with puttin' (3)DS games on the VC/allowin' you to play ones ya already own on the big screen. Porting games requires a complete programming overhaul as is, but actually changing textures 'n images is a bunch'a extra work.

    I still believe it'd be a most profitable venture regardless and sincerely hope Ninty wouldn't hold back on DS VC games just 'cause'a that.

    Why? I like DS games how they are already; there's no need for them to transfer some to a Wii U.

    Profit for Ninty and accessibility for consumers.

    Two mighty fine reasons.

    I don't think 3D would be that hard... THe Wii U's hardware supports 3D (through HDMI, but stereoscopic should also work), but nintendo has stated that they aren't working on making 3D games.

    Obviously, you wouldn't be able to take them everywhere anymore.
