Nubageddon: Activision thinks 3DS circle pad is 'great'

Nubageddon: Activision thinks 3DS circle pad is 'great' photo



You want more positive 3DS stories? Here's one for you, plucked fresh from the baking tray! While Nubageddon scours the land and reaps the souls of children, evil publisher Activision has come out in support of Nintendo's circle pad add-on, calling it a great move.

"It does make the hardware more relevant and compatible to the style of games we make," said publishing boss Eric Hirshberg. "I don't have anything to announce in relation to that, but I think it was a great move and it opens up that platform to more styles of games."

Of course, support from Activision is basically like having Satan as a character witness, but it's still a bit of positive press, so there you go. I just hope that the publishers backing this peripheral up think about supporting it, because the complete lack of compatible software is what kills almost every Nintendo add-on.

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
