What about the 2nd analog stick attachment? How, after making the XL and now this version, could they STILL forget to add a 2nd analog stick? Especially on this one, since the analog attachment that's currently already available for 3ds won't likely fit on this one? Really should have put another stick.

"STILL forget to add a 2nd analog stick?"

Nope they didnt forget. Cant you see what Nintendo is trying to do? They want people to buy the CPP accessory.

you can see the design would have allotted the 2nd analog pad to be on the lower right side if they moved the start/select to the left.

in any case, that looks so obscure that it could be worth buying just to have. It could become a rarity like the wii-mini and the snes jr or top loading nes.

Hint: they're trying to make it CHEAPER and barely succeeded at getting a significant reduction as is. What do you think adding a second analog stick would do?

Plus, they're saving a standard second analog stick to pretend they have some revolutionary changes for their 9th gen handheld.

Maybe because this design is for younger casuals?...

If Nintendo's intended audience with this is children, I don't think many of them will care about a second analog stick. Kids will be playing Animal Crossing and Pokemon with this, not Monster Hunter.

That's a lot of plastic. It reminds me of those old Tiger handheld games.

Um think I'll keep my eyes set on the 3ds
jonboi24  +   547d ago
Oh god at first I thought this was a late April's Fools joke but WTF Nintendo, this is just stupid. What is the point of this?
SonyNGP  +   547d ago
A cheaper 3DS for the kids. At the $130 price tag that it has, it will sell like hotcakes. Especially since it comes out on the same day as Pokemon X and Y.

Smart business move.

But the design is just stupid. Your screen will get f*cked up. Why don't they just drop the price of the original 3ds to 130 and add a parental restrictions to turn if the 3d feature for kids 7 and under.

Go home Nintendo. You're drunk.
CaptainPunch  +   547d ago
Nintendo has no idea how to design their products.
nevin1  +   547d ago

Whitey2k  +   547d ago
