    does anyone know if any games in the future will support the circle pad pro? i know they're coming out with a new version of the 3ds with another analog nub on the right and zL and zR buttons, and that games will cater to these features, does that mean that my investment in the circle pad pro was a wise one in that the extra features will be supported? or is nintendo going to be lame and force me to buy a new 3ds just to use the features i already have? any info would be appreciated

    if they do it would kind of be like if you had a turbo grafix 16 and you got the cd attachment for 500 bucks when it came out, just to have them tell you that you need to buy the turboduo to play the new games that came out after. sorry if i'm referencing old hardware that you youngins haven't heard of.....

    Honestly, I don't see a future for the CPP. Ninty's gonna be pushing that New 3DS as hard as they can.

    The CCP had little to no support and with the 'Super 3DS' it'll be forgotten of its existence, because the majority of Standard 3DS owners didn't use it either.

    geez, no one knows. no one can tell you if games that support the nub also support the cpp.
    what i can tell you is that any publisher and game maker with the slightest bit of a clear mind will keep making games that work without either and on every single 3ds console out there. so it really doesnt matter one way pr another. personally, at best, i expect more games with additional control options

    it is bulky, to say the least, but once you get around that, it's a handy little attachment. i would like to see more support for it. heck there are a couple games out already that should be supporting it *ahem* batman

    Smash not supporting it seems like a very bad sign to me, but maybe 3rd party developers could be less dickish than Nintendo?

    I think it’s probably would be supported on low demanding games (in terms of HW) since I guess C-Stick and zR zL support is mandatory now (I guess). If you want to play MH or RE: R I recommend you to get it anyway.
    It has been explained that SSB is not supported since the implementation of CPP bites off about 5% of performance (ridiculous). I wonder why would you want it anyway.

    There were no games that would play on the Duo that wouldn't also play on a TGCD, so long as you got the updated super system 3.0 card they put out. Granted it was still a small kick in the nads, but not a big "buy a whole new system" full force kick. Not that many people bought the card. They were only sold direct via mail order, and are so rare they cost somewhere around $300 today!

    And the CPP not only has no future, it barely has a past. It was practically DOA, and Nintendo hasn't even sold them for almost a year now.

    Sadly and I believed... there's no future for CPP since the New 3DS was announced. The future would be in the homebrew and that would be freakin' awesome
