3DS remake is not something I wanted to hear, really. SSB discussion is good, but it sounds a way off yet.
RIP CVG. Future can get stuffed.

Find me on GNamer or the CVG Survivors' Club.

It can be very hard to believe in the good of this world, but you have to keep on believing to make it a better place. Because if no one believes, then there will be no one to make it happen.

Hahaha where are all the people who were saying that a dual stick 3DS was about to come out..........MONTHS AGO?

So confident you were, telling everyone how it was going to go down :)

The only problem with screens that big is that the pixels are MASSIVE, and the 3DS doesn't have a great resolution to start with. Still, getting ready for Professor Layton 5 & the new Brain Training, I guess.

Why no second circle pad? Do they want to release another pro pad separately and break the world record for biggest handheld you can drag along with you :|

Edit: Apparently I'm not the only one who noticed.

Its not like we never saw this coming, wouldnt be surprised if there were a few more re-designs, the lack of a 2nd circle pad is complete stupidity, and a missed opportunity.

I'm guessing that the normal 3DS should be a wee bit cheaper now then?

I've said all along that the 3DS doesn't need twin sticks. Thanks, Ninty for proving me right and not splitting the 3DS user base. Let's face it, it only works with a handful of games.

While certain people insisted that Nintendo making the Circle Pad Pro was an admission of a design flaw, IMO, it was only made at the behest of Capcom and Nintendo never really wanted it or considered it essential. They only agreed in order to get two Monster Hunters on their system and rain on the Vita's parade.

90% bigger screen? It already looks pixelly compared to a Vita, and for 3D you likely have to hold it further away, defeating the object somewhat.
