Why are my ideas always completely disregarded? Why is it that Nyko, of all companies, manage to come through on the side of gamers? Above you'll find Nyko's Power Grip Pro, a combination Circle Pad Pro and Battery Pack.
What's more, I think this looks quite a bit better than Nintendo's own Circle Pad Pro, seeing as it triples as a protective case for your 3DS. Nyko is promising that the Power Grip Pro will triple the battery life of your 3DS and provide easy installation.
I'll ask again, why didn't Nintendo do this in the first place? The Power Grip Pro is set for a $29.99 price point, only $10 more than Nintendo's Circle Pad Pro would set you back. How stupid do you have to be? The Power Grip Pro is slated for an October release.
