3DS Slide Pad: 480 hours of play, stupid screw seal

3DS Slide Pad: 480 hours of play, stupid screw seal photo



A Japanese gamer that got the 3DS Slide Pad early cracked open the manual to find that it promises 480 hours of play time from one AAA battery. That's a crazy number, but I'm guessing that this single control doesn't need much juice. Hell, I'm surprised that it can't just draw power from the 3DS.

It's a good thing that the battery lasts that long. A photo on Andriasang shows that the battery compartment for the Slide Pad is sealed with a screw. Who wants to pack a screwdriver? Great idea there, Nintendo.

The Slide Pad also comes with a strap. Neato.

It's too bad that they didn't make the Slide Pad an additional battery to add to the 3DS's battery. I find myself not wanting the Slide Pad as it would force me to take off my beloved Nyko Power Grip for 3DS.

More play time > second slide pad.

Rumor: Ness amiibo leaked, selling on Chinese auction site

A Ness amiibo has been spotted for sale on a Chinese auction site and appears to be in European packaging. Currently it sits at about $55, though I don't imagine that price will stay there for long. Comparing the images in the gallery to the official Ness amiibo pictures, I'd say it looks to be the real deal. What do you think, real or fake? Ness amiibo leaked in China [My amiibo News]more
