    Does anyone have it?

    What are the impressions of it?

    Games compatibility?

    Don't have one. Only game I have that supports it is Kid Icarus, and that only uses it for left hand controls from what I hear.

    I got it for Monster Hunter and it works great, in fact the grip makes playing other games much more comfortable. It makes the XL much less portable, but it helps me feel like a man.

    i have it, it is unfortunately a dead-born product just with a few games supporting it.

    it would be much better just with a simple feature. enabling R button on the ccp xl as the console's R button even if the game doesn't support cpp. it is nearly impossible to press the 3ds xl's R button when the cpp is plugged. if nintendo does this, i would be very happy to use my cpp as a hand grip even on non-supporting games as it makes holding 3ds xl much better.

    Well, I have resident evil and kid icarus. Should I even bother getting it?

    As for the rest of the games on the compatible list, I don't really have any intentions of getting any of them.

    So, I finally got one for USD18.

    Seems like for kid icarus the right circle pad does the same thing as the left. It doesn't move the crosshair.

    For resident evil it works fine though

    So was it worth the price, in your opinion?
