Rumor-GBC/GBA Games to Hit DSiWare?

Read that once more, let your head absorb the thought of it, and then cheer in happiness.

According to Nintendo announced that GBC/GBA games will be hitting DSiWare (no specific date was given, but as long as it is coming I will live with the thought). This news was announced last night during a Club Nintendo event for those who had reached Platinum level(though I don't remember getting an what gives?).

So how will the DSi hold GBA games that would take quite a large chunk of memory? It wont, an SD card will. It has been said that the DSi will be compatible with SD cards of 2GB or more, and that you will be able to play your games directly off of the SD card you saved it on, something the Wii is lacking even 2 years after its release.

The (slightly) unfortunate news out of this is that the games will be region locked, which isn't a surprise at all but for those who really wanted a Japanese game that never got to America...your probably not going to find it on DSiWare.

Also confirmed at the event was the rumored 1000 Nintendo Points for buying a DSi and logging into the DSi Shop, that's all true, and you get your $10 present in the exact way listed.

I've already installed similar programs for emulating retro games several times, but none of them worked normally on my phone. I was a bit upset, but my friend advised me to try using gba roms android and how happy I was when everything started and began to work stably.
