Why do Nintendo always remove backwards compatibility from their handhelds?|
I've never bought more than 15 games for a handheld but have easily done that on DS. Here is the thing, Nintendo could have the first 1-6 Final Fantasies on their handhelds and by now have a strong shout for finally a Final Fantasy 7 port to be released. Instead Nintendo remove backwards compatibility almost saying f*ck you Square, all the work getting 1-6 was in vain now we have a strong shout to put 5 and 6 on the 3DS.
Imagine Playstation removing the ability to play the first 1-9 Final Fantasies?
With consoles you buy them and they usually stay in one place, so you might choose to leave a PS2 lying around besides your PS3. Handhelds go around with you. Are you now telling me I need to carry around a GBA, 3DS to play the first 1-6 Final Fantasies? Nintendo are shooting them selves in the foot because now they have forced consumers hands to get a Playstation handheld for Final fantasies on the go...
