So in comparison to the XL, they are smaller but screens are the same size?

It sucks that I hadn't gotten my XL too long ago, but with all the improvements they've made for these, I'm going to have to pick up a New 3DS XL.

This is a little concerning... Although I'm certainly picking both of these up, I hope that more games won't be exclusive.

Not true. It also adds Amiibo functionality, improved processing speed, and supposedly "improved 3D." I'd say it's a pretty big change. But I will admit that the second analog stick is a dumb idea.

I'm actually really glad that his is being implemented. After having gone back to N64-era 3D games, I've really come to notice how important having a second joystick for camera control is. Hopefully this C-stick will really open the New 3DS to a lot more intricate 3D platforming/ adventure/ first person games. The current library is a little littered with RPGs.

An exclusive port is bullshit. I could download and play it on my Wii right now if I wanted to.

@#$%!
I just bought a 3DS XL, and now they're going to release this, with an exclusive game?
That's &@#$%!

Also, what's with that tiny second analog stick?
They couldn't have moved the buttons down or up and put in a second same-sized analog?

The stick is meant to resemble the smaller c-stick of the gamecube.

If I had to guess why it's still small, imagine having fingers held over the buttons and a large circle pad located above. Smaller hands would have more problems reaching the full range of motion of the pad. This way the thumb would ideally also rest above it and be able to reach buttons + camera pad.

Nintendo is already planning a multitude of exclusives for this. If anything we could see 3DS games being phased out slowly next year and New 3DS remain the standard until the next gen handheld comes out.

This isn't the first time they've done it, GB > GBC (with exclusive games), GBA > GBA SP (no exclusive games), DS > DSi (with exclusive games).

Put that with the rumor that they may get a ram and vram bump and yeah this is getting a lot more exclusives.

Also that C-stick....ew.
