Will the Nintendo Switch be backward compatible?
No, it will not be, because it will use cartridges rather than discs. However, there is hope that there will be digital content available through the console, so that we can still play older games. You won't be able to play Wii or Wii U games directly and it's still not confirmed if certain games will have backwards compatibility if bought digitally.
The Nintendo DS is fully backward compatible with Nintendo DS games; however, the Nintendo 3DS does not have Slot 2, as seen on the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite, so those features will not be supported. Additionally, DSiWare games will be available to download on the Nintendo 3DS after the software update in May 2011.
Backward compatible means that a computer or computer component, or computer program is compatible with older versions of itself. For example, since windows XP is backward compatible with windows 98 (for the most part) then any software for windows 98 should run on windows XP (for the most part). Another example would be 8X AGP slots which are designed to also allow backward-compatiblity with older 4X cards.
No, Pokemon Gold version will not work on the Nintendo DS. Pokemon Gold is a GameBoy Color game, and the Nintendo DS's GBA compatible slot only works with GBA (GameBoy Advanced) games. Even though the GBA system is compatible with Pokemon Gold, the GBA compatible slot in a Nintendo DS is not compatible with Pokemon Gold.
the answer Only the Backward Compatible versions can and Sony shortly stopped production of those after they were released. From what i know the only ones that were backward compatible were the 60GB, 40GB and 20GB. None of the models released after 2007 were backwards compatible as Sony had removed this feature.
New remake of 80GB ps3 when my mom was returning the 60 GB cause it wasnt ps2 compatible and the guy said that there remaking the 80 GB whens is releasing?
yes can not be verified Nothing released under the specifications says that it will be backward compatible and the Dual Shock 4 controller is not backward compatible for the PS3 and required for the PS4 its official that the new ps4 will be backwards compatible, this also means that most ps4 games could be played onto the ps3. No that is not what backward compatible means but sooner or later down the round the ps4…
