That is a monster.

Without comment? You mean, no baffled commentary on such a device's existence and speculation of what it could mean?

Oh, wait. That was last year. :P

Oh man...

#7 Posted by iAmJohn (6110 posts) -

At least they made it smaller on the side?

#8 Posted by CitizenJP (1006 posts) -

Why, gawd? Why couldn't they just have built a 2nd circle pad into the 3DS in the first place? It looks so cumbersome.

Love how it's not a picture of somebody holding it, because they can't!

Fits in my pocket!

you know all it would have taken is the stick and some wires. It's not like there's so much extra circuitry that they can't fit it all in the 3ds

GODZILLA!!!

#14 Posted by BlueWolverine (93 posts) -

And people will buy this like the good little sheep they are. Brand loyalty is stupid.

Nintendo... ur dumb.

#16 Posted by delicious_lie (160 posts) -

I don't understand. Do you perhaps have an image of it... slanted?

#17 Posted by BBQBram (2205 posts) -

This is the most compromising bullshit.

#18 Posted by rachelepithet (1350 posts) -

And THATS how you compete with the growing mobile phone gaming biz.

#19 Posted by evanbower (1210 posts) -

It's.. it's... . glorious.

#20 Posted by lesaboteur (29 posts) -

There is no sigh large enough to describe my feelings about this and Nintendo as a whole.

#21 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (4331 posts) -

Fantastic.

#22 Posted by Rhete (18 posts) -

Does it come with a stand?

#23 Posted by familyphotoshoot (653 posts) -

Oh, Nintendo.

#24 Posted by Vexxan (4616 posts) -

It's almost hilarious that this thing exists, it looks so fucking dumb.

MC Hammer loves his new Nintendo 3DS XL w/ Circle Pad Pro

The reason for why MC Hammer is being questioned about the new Nintendo device is still unknown to date, but nevertheless, MC Hammer said "It's great. I can take it anywhere, I love it." When asked about good games he could play with his new Circle Pad Pro, MC Hammer refused to comment. However, to the claims that MC Hammer was solo on praising the new devices he had a response "You just wait for it. I may even do a TV commercial with it. It's going to be real big". In yet another sad attempt to remember the general public why the name MC Hammer means something more than a gun in Borderlands 2, he ended his statement with "Everyone can touch the 3DS XL Circle Pad Pro!".

@Winternet: Circle Pad Pro XL : The Hammer Pants of handheld peripherals.

#28 Posted by BlackLagoon (1384 posts) -

I'm curious, how big is that thing compared to a Vita?

#29 Posted by I_Stay_Puft (3058 posts) -

Looks like one of the first ever made laptops.

#30 Posted by GunstarRed (5044 posts) -

Great? How many games actually use that thing at this point 4? 5?

#31 Posted by august (3827 posts) -

It's a great videogame system, and it fits in the trunk of my car!

@GunstarRed If only there was some sort of database that could answer that for you
#34 Posted by Krakn3Dfx (2485 posts) -

Maybe now they'll rename the original Circle Pad Pro to 'Classic Circle Pad Pro".

It seems like the obvious move.

That's two Essential peripherals in a row hammered home by the GB team, can Brad take it home with a third?

#36 Posted by killawogg (222 posts) -

bigger stronger faster

#37 Posted by kerse (2103 posts) -

Why didn't they just put another circle pad on the XL.

#38 Posted by bemusedchunk (676 posts) -

vita needs a circle pad pro.

@MildMolasses: I don't know how to use the internet.

The Gaaaxthans with three hands need that third analog stick. Huge audience they're missing out on.

I still can't fathom who this ridiculous contraption is for. The only game that really demands it is MGS3 and it's a horribly gimped version of that game in general anyway (get the Vita or PS3/360 version...seriously) and Resident Evil is 100% comfortable without it even if it makes it a bit more controllable. The 3DS really doesn't need a second stick - it's not required for the kind of games that really thrive on Nintendo's handhelds.

What the actual fuck?

You forgot Monster Hunter. They pretty much made it for that.

I love nintendo, I really do, but their strategy for handhelds can be a little ridiculous at times.

#47 Posted by Smokey_Earhole (473 posts) -

That...thing thrown through a brick wall? WILL vaporize said wall.

Something about the battery I think being underneath.

Yeah, but even then the PSP versions sold craploads without a second stick and people seemed to love those. Not saying it's not nice to have another one, but seriously...this is quite possibly the weirdest way to handle this peripheral.
