DS games play awful on the 3DS. The d-pad is a complete piece of sh*t (diagonals are next to impossible and the thing feels cheap as hell), and using an analog stick for most DS games is terrible. If you want an example try playing an SNES platformer on the VC with the analog stick, and imagine less accuracy and more stick-resistance.

The games look awful too. If they're scaled up they look fuzzy and lose their color, and if you play them at their original resolution they're way too small.

I have a feeling VC eShop games are going to have the exact same issues. The 3DS is basically only good for playing 3DS games.

Aren't you the guy that refuses to use 3d as well?

This is a signature.

@Bigrat - It stands for dual screen.

Was expecting this thread to consist of 'Whine, whine, whinge, moan, groan, whiney whine, whinginess, moany, extra groany... whine.'

More like it hurts my eyes (my eyes suck) and I don't see any benefit to it anyway.

Don't get me wrong, I don't hate the 3DS. I love playing games designed for it, and I'll be picking up Zelda day one — but I'm definitely not going to give out gushing praise just because I like Nintendo. The system has things wrong with it.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

@pixelman. I agree. DS games don't look as good on the 3DS. I wonder it this design was intentional to urge 3DS owners to purchase a DS Lite (especially with the newly reduced price). Even with the reduced price, I won't be purchasing another DS Lite (sold previous hardware). I'm currently playing Zelda Spirit Tracks on my 3DS and am content with it.

My next handheld purchase will be the PSVita, containing a much better screen. Also, it will probably have original PSP titles available for download.

The can is open, but the worms are surrounded by fish hooks. Current faves: Batman: Arkham City, Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Collection

because apparently Amazon's staff didn't bother reading through Nintendo's own DS FAQ, which Tasuki linked in his comment :3

DS games play great on the 3DS. Even if you shrink the size of the screen to up the resolution (which I always do. The graphics look awful otherwise), the game still recognizes stylus movement outside the "screen." So if you're playing Phantom Hourglass and you slide your stylus into the big black abyss that surrounds the shrunken screen, Link will still respond as he normally would. It's quite convenient

Lol pretty much. As I pointed out as well people just assumed it stood for dual screen, but if you think about it though that would be calling the Wii Nintendo Motion or something along those lines.
