Re: 3DS second circle pad rumour
Nintendo have a bit of a history when it comes to releasing redesigned versions of their current hand-held consoles. And that's fine; I got my original DS right before the Lite was announced, and it didn't really bother me. Whilst I wish I waited a while, it wasn't like I was missing out on anything, either.
The same can't really be said for this. They've disillusioned the people who have already bought a 3DS, and if the reaction on here is anything to go by, people aren't going to want to take the plunge with the 3DS (redesigned or not) now.
As Li-Ion says, if I am getting either next gen portable, it will be a Vita. For now, my DS is still just fine after five-or-so years.
