Is this true? Dual thumb sticks for a future model?

Is this real? 10$ for gamestop or something to add an extra thumb stick isn't a bad deal :P

No, it's fake. It's just someone trying to get people to stop buying 3DSs.

No. It's not true.

It's a stupid rummor that was made up that people forgot what that means

We'll find out in a couple weeks how much of this is true or not.

Current rumor is a $99 budget model, no 3D for those that dont care about it or cant see it, and dual sticks so they can tap into the massive FPS fanbase, with an attachment for current 3DS models.

We'll see, makes a lot of sense to me though. Could be a huge hit at just 99 bones.

It's a rumor. Didn't the site tell you that?

I must have skipped the part about it being a rumor. As I read a little more on a different site, it said it was all a rumor and nobody knows for sure. I for one think this is a good idea IF they make games that support this function.

Of course they would. Wouldnt be a reason to add the stick if they werent going to make some FPSs and other games that would use it.

Why do I badly want them to do this? To open up the floodgates for things like a proper Metroid Prime game, and plenty of other sweet games like it that really need that second stick. Hunters was garbage with that awful control scheme.

Someone's ass. The same as all the other "facts" so far.

Ah well. I'll wait a couple weeks and see what pops up about this. Maybe Battle Field 3DS will be good after all....
