Nintendo DS

Postby lufiamanaelf » Tue Jun 01, 2004 8:13 pm

Does anyone know what kind of game the DS would have? I.e., game pak like in GBA, or disc like in the GC? It's been bugging me. :P

Because using discs on a handheld system would be pretty difficult.

(Which reminds me... isn't the PSP using discs?)

From what I saw from the articles at the E3 site, yes, the PSP does use discs.

Does that mean that GBA and GB games would play on it?

I think it's backwards-compatible w/ the GBA, but I don't know about the GB/GBC.

Sorry...... :cry:

The PSP will use discs? I hate to imagine what it'll look like! ;)

Well, I do know that it is backwards-compatable with the GBA games, so it has to be backwards-compatable with the GB/GBC games as well, because the PS3 will be backwards-compatiable with the PS2 games, which makes it backwards-compatible with the PS1 games.

Plus, I'm pretty sure I saw an article that did confirm backwards-compatibility for the DS with GBA and GB/GBC games :roll:.

Well, PS3 probably won't be out for another year or two... so don't get your hopes up... yet.

There are already plenty of sites up about the PS3 (even though nobody knows much about it). ;)
