Why is this exactly? Looking at the 3ds there was PLENTY of room for another analog, but nintendo chose not to add it. If the PSP 2 had been announced with 2 analogs people would have been bashing sony like crazy

Bull. There are plenty of people complaining about there only being one analog.

3DS has the touch screen though, which can compensate.

DIdn't they say that this was not the final version of the 3DS? Maybe they MIGHT add that extra analog stick...

Knowing my luck though, they will be two crappy sticks instead of one good one.

I'll take a touch screen over another analog stick any day.

True, but there have been complaints nevertheless. On the other hand, DS has touchscreen as extra input.

On a sidenote: Sony, for once, deserves some credit with their analog nub on PSP. Nintendo copied it and improved upon it.

One word:

It really makes up for it.

But, this new machine will now have both.

Because no Nintendo console has two analog sticks (not counting the c-stick, which used to be 4 c directional buttons) where as all Playstations have 2 Analog sticks, apart from the psp. Also, Nintendo has been doing handhelds like this set up for a while. Also, psp is PlayStation Portable, so people want it to be more playstation. Also, I've been adding lots of things. Also, these last two things are irrelevant. Also, this point that I could have phrased this better.

I'm not saying NO ONE complains, but we all know it's NOWHERE near the hate sony gets because of it. The PSP is still getting hate today because it doesn't have dual analogs....The new DS gets announced and doesn't have it and these same people just don't care for some reason....the same people that act like Sony is the worst company ever for not including dual analogs on the psp.....If Sony announced the PSP 2 without 2 analogs I could only imagine how badly received it would be
