The 3DS has its own library of games, but can also play any games released on the DS or DSi.

Yes, but the 3DS does not

Can you play Nintendo 3ds games on Nintendo ds lite?

No the 3DS game cards are shaped slightly different then the Nintendo Ds. Of course if you could put the 3DS game cards in the Ds lite it would still not work because the features and intense graphics the nintendo 3DS requires for games can't be used on the Ds lite. Don't buy 3DS games for the Ds lite as it just won't work. You can consider buying a 3DS however as the 3DS is backwards compatible with all DS games.

Are dsi and ds3d games compatible?

DS games can be played on the 3DS but 3DS games can't be played on the DS.

because the 3d games are only built for the 3ds but the ds games will work on the 3ds but they won't be in 3d
