With the newly announced Circle Pad expansion, could the 3DS be your new Wii U controller?
Nintendo 3DS uses, Shoot itself in the foot It's super effective.
waltyftm uses lame reference....TWICE and it sucks
Ninteno are looking bad...wii u could be worser...
You're grammar couldn't be "worser"............
your* but I know what you mean. im the last person to correct some 1 but still get the agree from me.
nintendo had more support for the 3ds in the wii-u than they did for the wii. I always wondered why they didnt include more direct control of wii games via the dsi. The download station function of the wii and ds could have been used to effectively control games if done right. Now with the wii-u, I would like them to have that option of using the 3ds (or dsi) as an input controller for games. I have the same expectation for sony with the vita and control of ps3 games. Not the remote play but actual direct interface as an optional control scheme in the game itself.
Nintendo is definitely going through a f***ing identity crisis. First they price it at 250 now the lowered it down and give early adopters stone-age NES games we've already own. Then we have this attachment that places the second circle pad at a very uncomfortable location and turns the 3DS to an eyesore. What's next Nintendo? A 32x-like addon that adds Wii-U horsepower to the system that makes it thrice as thick?
Yeah, I don't know which is worse, Nintendo's give away games that everyone already played or Sony's give away games (for the PSN debacle) that everyone already played. In either case it didn't cost either company anything to do it. meh...
I have bought none of the Sony's games in their giveaway previously so I am happy with Sony. Plus all these games are from this generation while Nintendo's games are from previous generations. They could've easily given us unreleased downloadable 3DS titles instead, or even a voucher for retail games.
nintendo dropped the ball with the 3ds, lets see if sony can pick it up..
I wouldn't go as far as saying the 3DS is doomed. I believe it will succeed, but this identity crisis is ridiculous. STICK TO WHAT YOU HAVE ALREADY RELEASED YOU DUMBSH!TS. You should have thought about the second circle pad a long time ago.
You gotta good point there. Nintendo is announcing a "remodeled" 3DS this year. All i can think is, thank god i havent bought one yet. With the small game library and the buzz about people getting sick from 3D effects, ive been really hesitant to bring the 3DS home. I will, however, definitely pick up the newer model. With 2 circle pads and triggers, Nintendo would have to be insane not have it as an optional WiiU controller.
can't wait to get my full purchase price of $250 for this next year when my warranty runs out and my story warranty kicks in and just trade this in for the ps4 for WiiU. This was a total kick in the nuts from Nintendo to me, and if it wasn't for Dragon Warrior X, I wouldn't even be buying a WiiU, I still might not if the wii version has a decent online mode.
Nintendo will do fine. Its eventually the software that sells.
hurray more speculation.
"_____ shoots itself on the foot" That damn phrase, it's so popular on N4G, oh man, no offense, but it sounds very mindless
I admit that's the ugliest piece of crap I've ever seen for an add on, but aren't the fanboys over reacting. This thing is clearly optional (and I won't be getting it) So why wasn't there hate like this when MHTri came packed with a classic controller pro?
Because many feel the second... knob-thingy... should've been built into it in the first place.
I'm more than a little sure those same people felt the Classic Controller Pro should have came with the Wii. Again as of now this is optional. until i see otherwise, i will say it's overreacting. just don't buy it, I wont.
Well said. Well Said....
another a few days we will more than likley see the next line of 3ds or DS if rumours are true it will have the second circle pad and will be dropping the 3D part
Nice. Perhaps this will put an end to all of the "no 2nd controller for the WiiU" specuation. I think that it would be utterly foolish of Nintendo not to pursue this idea. I still think that every WiiU should come with a "standard" controller. But who could refuse having a 2nd controller thats completely independent for gaming on the go. I also wouldnt have to feel guilty for just buying Nintendo handhelds for Pokemon and Fire Emblem games. On a much sadder note, the attachment itself is just awful. The analog stick is just... just... why the hell would they place it there? I feel realy bad for all of the ambassadors out there. I will be holding out for the new model, with circle pads that can actually be played by human beings.
