I thought I had heard that it was an analog stick, but according to their (somewhat poorly translated) FAQ section, it's digital (Here's a link). I never much cared for analog sticks anyways, and with no 3D acceleration, there isn't much need for one anyways.

Also, it appears that "GPX2" isn't going to be the final name of the machine. They are holding a contest to name the device. Most of the names submitted so far sound terrible in my opinion... maybe they sound better to the Koreans.
