Not sure how this will effect the 3DS, but one thing is for certain, add-ons don't have a very strong history.

Judging ow successful Wii peripherals were and Kinect(if u call that one), I'd say they sell more systems ;)

2 examples of successful add ons

The list of failed ones would be much longer, I can assure you.

dark charizard. you are seriously naive comparing that 3DS add on to a wii peripheral or kinect.

you don't get wii peripherals that bulk up the wii and make it look like SH**.

the kinect doesn't connect to the xbox and bulk the crap out of it.

the 3DS circle pad add on is full of fail.
