In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Rumor: Redesigned 3DS on the Way?

Posted on Tuesday, August 23 @ 10:10:23 Eastern by

French gaming site 01Net has been around the block a few times. They've correctly broken the specs for both the Wii U and the PlayStation Vita in the past, so it stands to reason that they might have something on good authority when they say there's a new Nintendo 3DS model coming down the pipeline.

This rumor comes on the heels of an announcement from Nintendo that they'll be hosting an event pre-Tokyo Game Show on September 13th. In 2005, Nintendo revealed the Wii Remote controller for the Wii at Tokyo Game Show, despite not having a booth there.

The new 3DS model reportedly "radically tones down" the handheld's 3D feature, possibly even to the point of a total rebranding for Nintendo's new handheld. These reports suggest that the price-cut was a means to clear excess 3DS stock from retailer shelves ahead of the announcement.

Frankly, I don't have a clue how they could "tone down" the 3D feature, seeing as you can just turn the effect off at your leisure. Will a redesigned 3DS drop the 3D altogether, despite so many 3D games in development by Nintendo and third party publishers?

To add to the oddity at hand, Nintendo is reportedly developing a detachable second analog stick for the current 3DS, priced at "about $10." What could Nintendo possibly be planning? We'll be sure to bring you every detail leading up to and throughout the Tokyo Game Show.
