What's all this about a 3D-less 3DS?

Is this just speculation? Man, this board has gone nuts since I last checked in. I understand the angst over the price cut but where is all of this rumor and speculation coming from?

Some french site (01.net) posted a rumor that Nintendo is working on a 3DS relaunch, which would focus less on 3D and add a second analog stick.

And despite what some will try to tell you, that site reports so many rumors that the ones it gets right are subject to the "stopped clock" principle.

People keep changing the original rumor. There is no 3D-less 3DS being considered, but a new unit will downplay it. Nothing in the rumor suggest it's going to get rid of the 3D, that's just people pulling it out.

It's just a rumor. Personally, I don't see what the point of making a 3D-less 3DS would be; it wouldn't even technically be a 3DS then. Plus, the 3D feature can already be turned on or off, so it just seems unlikely to me. Then the system would just be a regular DS with better graphics capability.

3DS without 3D sucks. Why would anyone buy a non-3D, 3D system when there will be a competing non-3D portable which will be far more powerful?

May as well just can the 3DS if they remove the 3D, as that is why the vast majority of consumers bought it.

inb4howduuyouknow? Logic. 3D is in the title and has been its main sales point. A genre of one.

Stopped clock principle? Bah. Everyone knows a backwards clock is right twice as often as a stopped one. For even better results make the clock spin at 10,000 rpm. That clock will be right quite often.
