Yeah, there's no room for side by side L1 L2 triggers a la the 3DS on the Pyra, but something that always nagged me about it all was why the micro hdmi wasn't simply stacked directly above the headphone port like the micro USB debug port above the USB 2.0 port was to fit triggers horizontally?We still don't know how good the new triggers will work in practice but let's hope for the best. And I'm 99% sure they are at least the better solution than these first "rice grain" trigger ideas. I'm personaly still prefer the new Nintendo 3DS solution (same as the NeoGeo X ) but we know there is just no space for.I doubt ED would be "bothered" by well-thought out ideas as he's an adult who can either embrace them or skip them as he's always done. Imagine if the naysayers had their day, as they almost did, with both pairs of shoulder buttons(there's no room, it's too late in production to modify them, can't place them at the corners), but time, research, and some chosen Nintendo DS ifixit.com pics did permit changes from those "rice grain" triggers we almost got.
What I'm getting at is how often would a person use the HDMI Out to a much larger display concurrently with headphones plugged into the handheld device(here I'm assuming both cannot be plugged in at the same instance)? Wouldn't they typically use the full sound from the external monitor or, if they absolutely must have bedroom silence and a large screen, plug in their earbuds to the outer display's audio out port? I'm not concerned about it anymore but it was a past curiosity, and maybe a sensitive question better left unasked for some, why Nikolaus didn't try it.
