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

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!

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

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

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!".

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

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?

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.

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.

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.
