    While I do think this is completely hideous, I have to try it out before making final judgement. It looks like it might feel like a console controller.

    Yay, it's a peripheral, not a new console.

    If this turns out to be true, the best thing to do would be to bundle the attachment with Monster Hunter 3G (Thought it was supposed to be Tri G? Oh well.).

    I don't really mind the second slidepad unless it sucks a hell lot of battery and it's affordable.

    As for MH 3G, nice rumor. Let's see how it goes.

    An attachment to to portable is a bad idea.

    It'll make the device even less portable.

    A very sloppy solution for Nintendo's mistake.

    Oh WOW... ridiculous. It's like Nintendo is affirming that putting only one analog was a bad idea (AND IT WAS, seeing how everyone complained about having only one in the PSP, Nintendo could easily have two in their 3DS).

    I'm fairly certain that Nintendo flat out admitted it was a mistake only having one analog.
    So it's not "like" it, it IS it, ahaha.

    With more and more rumours slowly getting confirmed, maybe a hardware revision really is on the horizon.

    What I am surprised is that most games work very well with just an analog on the 3DS (the camera control is brilliant)

    I have to agree, a huge mistake on Nintendo's part.

    I can see it now, Ambassador Program 2.

    Maybe a mistake not having a 2nd analog slider, but Nintendo also said they couldn't add a 2nd one in because there was just no more room.

    I still think it will be bundled with Kid Icarus for lefties. When they first announced the game, tons of lefties were complaining about how they would play.

    If all these rumors are true, it's just going to go over the ABXY buttons for games like that. I don't see why it would be needed for Monster Hunter at all.

    Because MH sells like hotcakes and would ensure everyone gets the attachment, ahaha.
    That and the biggest complaint about the PSP MH is the lack of a right analog.

    Nintendo has a history of "oh shit!" hardware patches. Examples: the N64 RAM pack necessary to play Majora's Mask and the Motion Plus Attachment for the Wiimote needed to play several games.

    This is the 3rd one and probably the worst.

    One question:

    I'm extremely confused. Is the second slide pad even confirmed?

    It wouldn't be a slider if that was done that way, and plenty of people would complain about not having the kind of control with it as they do with the left slider.

    Famitsu is an extremely reliable, trusted source.
    No official confirmation from N.

    But the point of the second analog would be to move the camera...

    If they make the ABXY an analog stick... sure you can move the camera then... but then you don't have any buttons.
