I know it sounds stupid, but has anyone tried cutting the little tab off of the 3DS games (If you got one today) and tried playing it in a regular DS system? Just curious what would happen since they seem to be the exact same shape except far that tab. And, no, I'm not doing it.... ;)

It just won't recognize it, I'm sure. It probably just won't show up on the menu, and menu will act like nothing is inserted because it doesn't recognize it as a legit game.

It's designed for use in the 3DS system, so any other systems will not recognize it.

It would allow them to play the game in the fourth dimension.

I think the real question is whether it will work in my Atari 2600.

Well, at least we know it's safe to file them down if you were desperate to fit 3DS cards in an old DS card holder or something.

Hey, you never know. The 3DS games could just be DS games that allow 3D. File the tab down and use the DS to play it in 2D and save yourself 250 bucks. ;)

I'd been wondering this too.

I am way too lazy to think of something clever.

The DS can't handle those kind of graphics and you know it.

Add the tabs onto old DS games to activate the 3D.

Stop complaining and GO PLAY GAMES.

Of course nobody is surprised it doesn't work, I can't believe somebody would take the idea far enough to actually do it. On a side note, the white cartridges look pretty nice.
