In Other News – September 7, 2011

Is it me or is Nintendo looking really confused lately. After shelling out many monies for a 3DS, I have to deal with the fact that the handheld is getting a big price drop and in exchange I’m getting a couple of ancient games. Now it looks like they want to add a second thumbstick into the mix after the fact. If it weren’t for Ocarina of Time right now, I would be looking for a Nintendo executive’s head to throw my 3DS at.

In Other News: Japanese publishers pay employees for extra sex. Battlefield 3 console resolution finally outed… not 720p, just. Is the price drop and Uncharted 3 still not enough for the PS3? This and more below.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we were all agreeing that Nintendo should take away our 3DSs and give us new duel-thumbstick models for free.
