Dual thumb sticks touch screen style?

I mean the 3GS already has a circle pad it's not a thumb stick. So why not add the 2nd circle pad virtually to the touch screen works fine with the iPhone

the 3DS and iphone use diffren't touch screens. Also it doesn't work well at all. Clearly you never play Metroid prime hunters on the DS in left hand mode.

There's a reason Vita is carry two sticks/pads.

It doesn't really "work fine" on the iPhone, since there's no feedback. At least with an actual stick, buttons and d-pad, you can tell exactly what you're touching. That's one of the biggest reasons I feel that iPhone is no substitute for dedicated handheld game devices for the core gamer.

In other words, do nothing. No additional hardware or software is required for that.

The iPhone has a different type of touch screen that works better with fingers (and is multi-touch) doesn't it?

Left-hand mode means using A/B/X/Y instead of the d-pad right? I could see that being annoying. It might work on the original DS model but nothing else really.

3DS touch screen ain't multi-touch. input only registers on one point, and if it detects multiple points, the average of those points (like the point between point A and point B).

and besides, making it multi-touch nullifies the point of having a stylus and encourages further smudging of an already-awfully-smudgeable touch screen.
