    Is it usable with Nintendo DS games? I mean, the control pad got lower in the console display, so it could be uncomfortable to play NDS games with it. Can we use the analog stick for those games too?

    Yes, you can.

    It still won't have the sensitivity it has with 3DS games because DS games aren't programmed to have a whole 360 directional...thingy.

    Yes but the game will still remain 8 directional only.

    And it will be digital (boolean) input, not analog. Meaning you can't play Super Mario 64 DS and move the stick just slightly to walk.

    I'm sure you can move it slightly to walk in SM64DS as you could if you carefully did it on the d-pad on a DS. It won't be as awesome as 3DS games that make full use of the slide pad but it'll somewhat work.

    Unfortunatly no, the game is programmed to move only in 8 directions... Trying to go smoothly is like trying to go diagnoly in Pokemon.

    It will work, but it's only 8-way direction.

    Wait, is it 360 analog in 3DS games? I never thought of that.

    To see how it will be, try using an analog stick on your pc with an emulator and game that us supposed to use a d-pad.

    Of course it is. Making it just for comfort would be pointless addition to the pricing. And we're talking about Nintendo, not Sony.
