Surely only a complete and utter moron would spend a fortune redesigning and pushing a new model of a dead machine without bothering to change the single most whinged about thing, namely the lack of second analogue.
Whoever came up with this thing needs punching in the head, you can imagine the meeting;
''I know, we'll eliminate the UMD drive thus destroying the second hand market and we can charge what we want for the games !''
''But er.... what about a second analogue stick''
''CHARGE WHAT WE WANNNNT !!!!!''
