What does Shackdaddy836 saying "Excitement" have to do with not reading the article?

I'm excited for all the content. Wasn't there like a camo maker in the game too? That sounds fun :)

So the standard size is 2GB cards? For some reason I thought it was more than that, probably cos the PSVita is meant to use 8GB cards. Still, better solution than splitting the game over several cards.

I could of swore I read somewhere that the 3ds was capable of using 8gb cartridges.

EYEamNUMBER12689d ago

yes it can but they don't plan on doing so right off the bat as time goes on little by little they increase the size like in the DS

Dramscus2689d ago

as the chips get cheaper to purchase for them.

It's actually more to help show a nice progression of graphics as the console's life span continues.

Marquis_de_Sade2689d ago

Menech, no, the capacity of a storage medium has no direct effect upon graphics.

But it's unnecessary and too early. They'll probably go 4gb max and no more.

I can't believe that this is already a problem, atleast they can upgrade as needed though

Marquis_de_Sade2689d ago

Wow, people don't even read the extract on N4G now?

CNXN2689d ago

i dont give random sites hits

Marquis_de_Sade2689d ago

Yes, but it says that Nintendo have made a bigger cart in the extract on N4G...

No 2nd analog stick for the 3DS = auto fail.


Muitnorts2689d ago

I'm really surprised that Nintendo didn't learn from the PSP that a second stick is important...

fastNslowww2689d ago

whats worse...they were originally thinking of adding another stick. Nintendo had given a reason, but i forget what they said....comical at best.

A 2nd analog is needed for proper camera control..the touch screen a lone lacks the resistance of a stick, it's much more comfortable too.


Dark_Overlord2689d ago (Edited 2689d ago )

I agree, I played Kingdom Hearts on the DS and the camera controls are horrible, its such a major hindrance and makes the game so awkward, a 2nd analogue stick would have worked wonders
