Ironically, there's nothing "pro" about it. Quite frankly, the things unsightly and won't be going anywhere near my 3DS.

How many games support this right now?

No use in buying it if nobody supports it. I really wonder if we will see a 3DS with the circle pad "pro" by next year

Nintendo in My opinion should have asked for dev feedback while designing the 3DS. The existence of this circle pad expansion is due to the demands of some developers. I believe that Nintendo will incorporate a circle pad in their next 3DS model because they don't want 3rd party games to suffer by not having it. Unless of course Nintendo doesn't care about 3rd party which is something I do not see happening.
