i know. i just used that date as an example.
Before the end of next week was the best I could get out of game stop and I honestly believe that that was the best answer the guy I spoke to could give. He was a store manager so not privy to all the details of course but he would need to know a little ahead of time to arrange staffing but still doesn't know exactly when.
Videogames are released on Tuesdays, right? Made available Mondays at midnight? I'm guessing either then or Friday next week.
GameStop is accepting pre-orders? That's not what mine told me. I'm confused.
What? We have GBA titles and have no problem with them, they aren't screwing up the 2DS or WiiU
No one was talking about the WiiU. Name a GBA title you have on your 2ds that doesn't stop all background operations.
Actually, name a GBA title that is on the 3DS eshop....
Daniel Vuckovic at Australian game site Vooks.net has an excellent breakdown of why Game Boy Advance games aren't on the Nintendo 3DS - and why we're probably not going to see them anytime soon, if ever.
The shortest answer is, the Nintendo 3DS's hardware isn't engineered to play Game Boy Advance games. As a result, the few GBA games available to Ambassadors aren't emulated. They're simulated.
The Nintendo DS has two CPUs: One for processing 3D graphics, and one for processing 2D graphics. The second CPU is the same chip that drives the Game Boy Advance. When players insert a Game Boy Advance cartridge into a Nintendo DS, the DS's second CPU slows down and reads the cartridge. Hence, Game Boy Advance goodness on your Nintendo DS.
The Nintendo 3DS's emulation of the Nintendo DS works in much the same manner. It has a larger CPU as well as a smaller CPU that can be considered a "Nintendo DS chip." That's why the 3DS can play DS games without issue.
While the same chip can be clocked down further to play Game Boy Advance games on the 3DS, the games need to run through virtual, simulated Game Boy Advance "hardware." The simulation renders the chip unavailable for 3DS background tasks like Wi-Fi, your friends list, and the like.
Even the 3DS's sleep mode is disabled when an Ambassador's Game Boy Advance game is running.
That is odd. Especially as we're in the same region.

Those are WiiU eshop titles.
Minish Cap was only released on the 3DS as part of the Ambassador program. And it still shuts down all background processes. I'm not sure what you're trying to get at since the topic of conversation you quoted was specifically about the 3ds, not the WiiU, and there are no GBA titles on the 3DS eshop
Nintendo releases are on Fridays, this one specifically on Sep 29
I was not aware of this fact, thanks!
Thanks El Rey.
