Oh, I've seen that before. It's an electronic bee hive full of robot bees. I'd run if I were you. megageneThis. And they're a right pain to remove once they've established a decent nest; the sound probably means you're too late.
I can't see the point in me buying it. I'm reasonably happy with Fifa 11, and have no intention of spending another £35-40 on what is essentially the same game. I'll wait until it's cheap or something. I hardly play online anyway due to people rage-quitting; the rate seems to be around 1 in every 3 games people quit from, and it just ruins the whole game. Two players on one console, offline is where Fifa is at its best, if you can tolerate how the game rigs the match (ie, one team suddenly can make all passes successfully, the other team can't get the ball and its impossible to defend, then it switches randomly but never equally).
I'll take a step back a second and approach this sensibly rather than shout angry abuse at Nintendo. Fact is, the 3DS needs a second slide pad. The extra shoulder buttons are welcome too. If this thing is cheap, I will buy it because I want that extra functionality. Secondly, it's not the end of the world; video game systems have long had addon peripherals and this is just another one.
Clearly though, Nintendo have made some horrific decisions with the 3DS. But at least we're getting them corrected. The price was wrong, the 3D has been over-emphasised and the controls clearly weren't bad, but were lacking. I welcome the 20 free games, and I welcome them actually having the guts to release this thing as a peripheral, rather than waiting for the next 3DS redesign or next gen handheld.
This is Nintendo saying, perhaps indirectly; we screwed up. They should expect a hell of a lot of angry customers though; just because I don't mind this addon, doesn't mean a lot of people won't. And they have every right to be upset or angry. But this, in my opinion, is the only solution to the lack of a second stick/circle pad.
