View Full Version : Gameboy Player DS?

Would you buy an emulator for the DS that allows you to play GB/GBC games on your DS? I might buy one. If they had them.

The reason that GBA slot is in the DS (or one of the reasons anyway) is because some games will give you unlockables based on the cartridge inserted. I've also heard a rumour of some games coming out with their own extension type things that fit into that slot.

I'll admit, it would've been nice if the GB/CGB feature was intact but I could see why it may not be. I don't think that those are the majority of the games played anymore, or that they are in stores (well...they might...maybe used or something). So, why put a relativley useless feature. Myself...I haven't really played any of the older games recently. Exception would be Super MArio Bros. Deluxe because it is better than the NES Classic version. But I can live playing on my AGB and Game Boy Player. I see no great benefit from playing it on the DS either.

I think something may be possible with ROMs and flash cartridges. I think I read something, but I couldn't figure out if it was a rumour or not.

No...I don't think I'd buy one. I only play Mario and Tetris. I won't buy an extension just for two games (I play my Zelda ones on the big screen with the Game Boy Player)

You don't get it, do you, billybob? It would look like a gameshark. You put it in the GBA slot and put a GB/GBC game in the thing. The thing would act as an emulator, the the GBA emulator that is built into the DS.

Well I would buy a DS emulator but only if it was cheap.

Nah I wouldn't get one.
I can't think of many that will, I mean if you have GB/C games then most likely you also have a GBA or an SP. If I wanted to go play Pokemon Crystal then all I have to do is pull out my SP or my GBA.

Because it would save space, weight in your pocket, promote simplicity, etc

I wouldn't do it though, because money doesn't grow on trees :P
