Junkie Monkeys: Several reports have been coming in from Japanese site 2ch that shows how several players have been breaking their 3DS analog sticks because of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS.
I've updated the post with more up-to-date information.
must be melee players trying to hard
Jesus! How hard are these apes actually slamming on those slide pads?! I mean look at those pics! The metal/plastic ring holding the slide pad together is literally CRACKED IN HALF in the first pic! How hard would you even need to press on it to make that HAPPEN?!XD I'm just gonna come right out and say it: It's not the game's fault, it's theirs. These people are being far too rough with their systems. There's no reason whatsoever to smash the slide pad to the side so hard that it breaks the plastic beneath it just to pull off a few Smash Attacks!XD These people need a New 3DS. The second analog stick will be a lot harder to wreck and won't have to be slammed to make a Smash Attack happen; it's like it was practically designed with these rougher players in mind.
Totally agree with you, it's like they stuck a screwdriver underneath the circlepad and pulled it out!! It's Just too much s:
No wonder it's called Super Smash.
Yeah, it is just like the guys, who when the Wii came out, threw the Wiimote into the TV and broke it, while playing Bowling or Tennis^^ Some people have a really rough motoric.
Obviously people with stress issues, I mean, no matter how immersed or excited you get woth a game, you just don't abuse your controller like that!!!
Haha. That is weird and funny. Ia not fonna let that happen... I take care of my things.
I play Smash Bros competitively and here are my thoughts on the matter: How? Seriously. Been playing it just as long as these people have and my slide pad is fine. I think these people are just pressing too hard and/or need to attend anger management.
my bro in law broke the left analog stick on his ps3 controlling raging from the ass whooping i kept handing him in UMvsC3...these things happen lol...stay calm people
Oh god I know I'm gonna do this, Gamecube controls can withstand the abuse from slamming the stick to do a smash attack, but the 3ds stick doesn't feel as reliable.
