I am not convinced with this
I saw this on Kotaku a while back and have to admit I am not really convinced that this is any good.
There are rumours about a new type of 3DS that has a second stick built in, if Nintendo does go down this route then how are early adopters going to feel? Not only has this group of people had to see the price of the console slashed, there could be a cheaper enhanced version on the way?
If games like MGS3 need the second stick, then Nintendo are going to have to make a device with the second stick built in, there is no way premium games like MGS3 are going to be released for a console with optional hardware... And yes, I do see a game that was released six years ago as a premium title for the 3DS.
if early adopters are going to (eventually) get free games as part of the ambassador program apology, then how is Nintendo going to address this oversight?
