Not only is this peripheral going to be cheap, but there have been many comments about this feeling really nice to use. Resident Evil: Revelations and Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater are going to be some of the first games to use the Circle Pad Pro, so there is a lot of incentive to own it right off the bat. Most of you will probably just purchase it with one of these games. Many people have talked about how it looks out of place, how they like the current configuration, why should they have to buy this extra thing so early in the 3DS life span, etc.
Fine do not buy it, but you may be missing out! One bad thing that I will say about it is that you have to unscrew it to deal with the battery that last 480 hours. Can't we find a way to charge this somehow? I took apart enough faulty controllers in the 64 days, I do not want to be doing this again.
