This whole 3DS thing just isn't working out well for Nintendo.
It wouldn't be a waste of money at all, simply because the DS allows you to play GBA games. It's backwards compatible. So not only can you do the Mario Kart DS online, you can ALSO play your FF IV. Sadly, it can only play DS and GBA games.
