Separated At Birth? The 3DS' New Gimmick And James Bond's Face

Some people think that the 3DS' new second-circle-pad add-on is ugly. They mock it. They deride it. But maybe the 3DS "slide pad" is a beautiful homage to one of history's greatest video game box-art optical illusions.

You see a slide pad.

I see Pierce Brosnan's extended jowl on the cover of Nintendo 64 classic GoldenEye.

See? See how the cheek sticks out on Bond's face? It's really his fist, but you get the idea. Now look at that slide pad again. Same thing. Sorta.

Bravo, Nintendo. Excellent homage. Can we now officially call this add-on the 3DS Jowl?


    Who will be the next journalist/blogger to find some witty way to bash the addon?

    This is just ******* stupid....

    I just saw the GoldenEye box art + 3DS and went a bit mental ... and then went :(

    Please go back to the medication the doctor gave you. It's for the best.

    Yeah thats not really funny at all to be brutally honest

      I agree, it's a bit of a stretch.

    Calm the feck down guys...sheesh. If you don't find the joke funny don't laugh.
