I don't find the 3DS to be ergonomically friendly to me. I love the feel of the SNES, 64, GCN, Wii, original GBA and DS fat in my hands. the 3DS... not so much.

now, you may all hate the new attachment, but i've been thinking of getting some sort of grip or something to make the 3DS thicker and more ergonomic, and you know what? The slide pad add-on might be the answer! will it make the 3DS more bulky when closed? yes. will it not fit into my pocket as well, or at all with the addon? yeah, maybe. Do i care? NOPE!

the position of the 2nd stick IS untraditional, but you don't know if it will feel okay or not until you use it. the system with the add-on probably won't be any wider than a PSP, so I'm not worried.

Come on nintendo! you'd best have made this add-on super comfy in my hands, so I can enjoy the 3DS without my hands being uncomfortable!

I agree, the 3DS is awkward to hold and my hand cramps with prolonged play... I also seems to have a problem with hand sweat. Which is interesting seeing as that was never and issue with my PSP or original DS.

The 3DS isn't uncomfortable to me, and I have really large hands, but I think the add-on would make holding it a bit more comfortable. We can only wait and see.

And the Gamecube controller is among one of the best things I've ever held in my two hands.

I don't have a huge issue with holding the 3DS either, but I do admit that the new addition might make it a little more comfortable. I sometimes play the 3DS while it's still in the cradle because I like how the bulkiness feels.

Question about the add-on (I haven't heard anything about it):
Will it include L2/R2-like buttons? I feel like that's doable, and would prove to be a great enhancement to the console's control scheme.

True. I did mention some months ago that one problem I have with the 3DS is it's thickness. So perhaps this will be help out. Then again...I still find the add-on silly.

from the pictures, it APPEARS they are adding those kinds of buttons, but there is no official word. take it as an unofficial 'yes' for now.

And for those who dare say that Mario isn't milked, he's been in over 200 games when the article was written a few years ago. We're probably at 250 or so now easily. People complain about sony milking God of War( 5 games in like 6-7 years) or Uncharted (4 games in like 4 years), then you're biased as hell.

I can't even be bothered to pretend to give a **** about your off-topic whining. Don't try so hard.
