I hope they make that joystick thing durable.

Imagine if Melee was ported over to the 3DS and we had a flimsy joystick, that would such disappointment. I don't wanna have to risk breaking my 3DS to play an awesome game.

It seems to be as durable as the PSP's analog nub, which is more than good enough.

Ya, I like the PSP's build design, those things were meant to last. I hope it's as good as that.

There is a video of someone at E3 actually moving the slide pad, and I must say it looks smooth like butter.

I actually hope it's better than the first generation PSP's analog nubs. Not because they break... but because dust gets in the console regardless of whether or not you have a case, and then the joystick returns random extreme values that are hard to change by moving the joystick. So... my character ends up moving forward and to the left, even if I'm holding down and right...

So I periodically have to open my PSP to clean the damn thing, and if 3DS is anything like a DS Lite, they're a lot more tricky to mess around in.

I do LOVE the PSP though, just not that aspect of it...

Kirby with a blue hat. Watch out he spits. I used to have a right thumb, but it left. Check the instruction manual before you ask a question. It saves time.

I just hope the L/R buttons are more durable this time. I broke/jammed all of the shoulder buttons on all 3 DS's I have owned. (Phat, Lite, and i) >:(

Good thing the 3DS closes, right? Something the PSP can't do.

Around 1:25

Its in french but you can see and he says the joystick is very good

Even if its in french you don't need to understand, the rest of the video he shows the 3DS features close up its pretty interesting

At the end he shows that the 3DS can locate a target on a surface do do virtual reality stuff

A good PSP case protects it about as well when you're not using it, and it's still a problem. It's not like dust can't get inside it while it's open.

Everything ive seen written about the analog stick from gametrailers, ign and gamespot say that it is much more durable and reliable than the psp nub. But we're just going to have to wait to use it ourselves.

Oh Indeed
