are people seriously believing the "second analog stick" rumor?

think about the ridiculous logistics around this
there are only 2 ways this could work

1.) release a new version with a 2nd slide pad, thereby making all 3DS units sold so far obsolete and useless

2.) launching a huge ass recall that allows you to trade your 3DS 1.0 in to get a new model with 2 slide pads


idea number 1 would enrage the industry beyond believe. there is no way Nintendo is going to do that
idea number 2 would cost Nintendo billions of dollars just to give the 3DS an extra control option. economical suicide is what it is. on top of that, VC downloads are tied to the individual system, so Nintend would have to change their policy regarding this completely, too

It's a stupid rumor that makes ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE.

3DS redesign with improved battery life in 2012-13? Well, THAT would make sense. If THAT was what they were reporting, I'd put more stock in it.

Fundamental bottom-up redesign less than half a year into the system's life? Pure [material from the business end of a bovine creature].
