TGS: The 3DS Slide Pad Expansion Isn't Ridiculous - IGN

My first reaction when I saw Nintendo's 3DS Slide Pad Expansion was disbelief. There was no doubt in my mind the system should have always had a second analog stick, but this as a solution? This seemed to be the worst way possible to do it. A clunky cradle that adds significant bulk to an already so-so system design? Not so hot. Today, however, my opinion is changing a bit. I've had time to hold the device in my hands. Honestly, it's not that bad.

The story is too old to be commented.

Of course it's ridiculous.

If a second analog stick is such a big deal--and it clearly is, given how quickly we're getting the peripheral--why wasn't it included in the original 3DS design?

It is as ridiculous as you can get--exactly why it's attracting so much ridicule in the first place.
