I came across this cool bit of news today that I thought you DS owners might appreciate. Check it out HERE.

Nintendo is on the right track with the DS. The new "lite" version is great. You can still play GBA games on it and it has some better colors.

I do appreciate the backwards compatibility of the Gameboy/DS line but I wonder how much harder it would have been to implement full backwards compatibility into the GB Micro and the DS as they did with the GBA line up through the GBA SP. :huh: I just thought that it was cool to be able to play a game that was released almost 2 decades ago on a modern piece of hardware. :)

I guess that if I were an exec at Nintendo I probably would have made the same decision seeing as removing hardware support of pre GBA generation games probably allows them to make the new hardware smaller and lighter. Also, it's getting pretty hard to find pre GBA generation cartridges at the used game stores, unless you are willing to get your games via eBay. Even then the selection can be sparse and overpriced.

It would really be nice if it could do that. I have some games that I would like to play. Mario Tennis, Dragon Warrior 1, 2 and 3 and some of the Final Fantasy games.
