Play DS Games On Your 3DS? Maybe Not

Destructoid has posted a rather good article on how it’s probably better to keep your old DS to play DS games, rather than use the 3DS which, you would think is just as good, if not better to play them on, apparently not.

It seems the picture will be stretched to such an extent that the screen will become blurry and colours not as crisp as they would be on a DSi/DSi XL. It’s to do with the 3DS being a higher resolution than the old DS and due to the lower resoltion that DS games run at, you’re left with quite a bit of spare room around the game area.

So, if you’re thinking of upgrading to the 3DS when its released, might be a good idea not to trade in your DSi/XL.
