Nintendo to release revamped 3DS in 2012 The latest Nintendo rumor has the company already developing a revised 3DS hardware, one that will launch next year.
Featuring a second analog stick, the console will also tone down the 3D capabilities of the system, which has proven to be a bust.

01net, which leaked initial specs of the Wii U, is the site behind the latest rumor, which could prove credible.

The site says its sources indicated Nintendo is concerned they marketed the 3D aspects of the console too aggressively, scaring away consumers who don't care for it and just want to play games on the go.

Nintendo recently dropped the price of its 3DS from $250 to $170, while offering 20 free games to early adopters.

Wow...Nintendo finally realized how dumb that form of 3D is...I didn't expect them to realize it so soon.

Now, how long before they realize that they are still charging 3D prices for something that no one (pediatric eye doctors excluded) wants?

Yeah either Support it or dump it entirely.
