    Anyone noticed that Circle Pad Pros are really hard to find? I've called every Gamestop in my area and they simply told me that they didn't have any in stock. A few days ago when I was out of town I went into their local GS, and asked if they had any... This guy actually looked it up and told me the closest Gamestop to have a CPP is in a small town in California. Thats quite surprising seeing that I live in the southeast portion of the U.S.

    What is up with Nintendo not supplying gamestops with this accessory? I'm a left handed person who never had anyone tell me to adapt early in life, so I really suck at playing FPS games or any other game that only supports aiming with the right hand. I only recently ran into the issue again when I bought Kid Icarus: Uprising and told them I also wanted a CPP. (to alleviate the odd controls in the game). Uprising has been dificult for me, but I thankfully have a pen sized stylus from my DSi which helps me grip it properly with my right hand... So I am slowly adapting to the controls.

    BTW, you might also notice that you can't even order the CPP from Nintendo's offical store! (Long ass link: http://store.nintend...rencyPreference)

    Have they quietly abandoned this product, or are they just waiting for the next big production run? I dunno but its really pissing me off. Meanwhile Ebay scalpers are charging 3X the original price and people are buying it. :(

    I live in Chula Vista and did that "search-a-store" thing where they find the nearest Gamestop that hold the CPP on their website. There was no result.
    It's a bummer, really.

    That doesn't really mean anything. Someone might have bought it since Friday. He told me there was only one.




    $70 for a used product that is $20 new. kthxbai. http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B006J66CPG/ref=dp_olp_used?ie=UTF8&condition=used

    I asked a Gamestop worker like two months ago about the CPP and they said they were sold out everywhere until June (Which I think got pushed back until July).

    It's supposed to be a Gamestop exclusive product too in the US.

    There's no way it's sold out. Gamestop is probably just holding them back for some reason.

    I'd just buy it from eBay if I needed it that badly. According to Gamestop, it doesn't come out as a separate attachment until July 2nd. http://www.ebay.com/itm/GENUINE-Nintendo-3DS-Expansion-Slide-Pad-The-Circle-Pad-Pro-Attachment-NEW-/251034264429?pt=Video_Games_Accessories&hash=item3a72cee36d#ht_2454wt_1228

    It's not Gamestops choice IIRC. Nintendo decides.

    Before Errpow comes in I might as well tell you that a thumb stylus is much much cheaper and a better deal (it works with any game that uses a touch screen, not only CPP optimized ones) plus the CPP is a stupid accessory and the lack of it shows how little of a damn Nintendo gives about a second stick.

    Okay.. I'm confused. Gamestop.com is saying that the CPP isn't even out yet?

    Didn't mean to sound douche/rude. Meant to infer that amazon wasn't any better than ebay as far as pricing goes. Sorry. :3
    He didn't say. :(

    +1 for Cali! I can do an awesome Schwarzenegger impression! :ha:
