    Default Quick question

    i just found my copy of silver for the gbc... and was so excited, maybe ill play it and have some nostalgic fun... but wait,, it doesnt seem to fit into my ds???

    now the question, can you play GBC games in the ds, or am i doing something wrong? makes sense you can play GBA games in it... isnt it the same slot connection?

    Nope, you can only play GBA games on DS.

    Ignore the friend code on Phanpy's head. That's the old DS.

    DS models aren't compatible with GBC games, but you could use a Game Boy Advance/SP/Micro(?), I believe.

    you can emulate the roms on your computer or on your DS for old times sake. or bring out the old brick of the original gameboy or GB color.

    Just a heads up, I believe because of the internal clock involved in the Gold/Silver/Crystal that they also have a battery in the game. Almost all on them are dead by now, so there are very few playable games left of these versions.

    Just remember that the equipment to pull the data off the cart is almost always used to hack.

    ... and as such this conversation is very close to the edge of our "Don't discuss hacking" policy.

    You can also use your GBA, as it can play game boy and game boy advance games.
