Rumor: 3DS Getting New Model, Second Analog Stick
So this is funny. We’ve got two rumors coming out of French site 01Net about the 3DS, and they’ve both made me laugh and sorta feel totally embarrassed for Nintendo if true. Here are the rumors
1. That Nintendo techs are hard at work trying to build a $10 attachment that adds another analog stick tohe current model 3DS. Apparently they were just so mortified that they didn’t add one the first time around in their rush to beat the Vita to market. 01Net sources say they’re telling developers to start making 3DS games that utilize two sticks.
2. That the 3DS will get a brand-new SKU next year that doesn’t really make a big deal about the whole 3D thing that heretofore has been the device’s selling point. It might even have a new name!
God, this is so sad, if true. In fact, I’m not even waiting to find out if these things are true to be sad for Nintendo. Being sad: commenced.
