GN Version 3.1

This information comes from hands-on impressions of the 3DS at a UK event…

- no multitasking while playing DS games
- game will ask if you want to go back to the 3DS menu instead of letting you use multitasking features
- doesn’t seem to be options available for DS games
- scaling/smoothing applied to DS games
- no graphical boost to games
- no black borders on bottom screen, black borders on top
- download play options for all DS iterations
- Circle Pad supported, but only works in 8 directions (like the dpad)
