Wrong.  Such things do exist.  But they're aimed at professional users.
For example, a relatively cheap thing:


(this single body has 2 elements in it recording what's known as M+S - 
Middle & Side - where there's a front-facing microphone as well as a
figure-of-8 response thing recording what's happening on each side of 
the microphone.  It can't be plugged in to a normal pair of mixer inputs
without some trickery (or in this particular model, use of the 'matrix'
box it comes with).

And something less cheap (if you can find one at all these days):

Then there are single-body mics with multiple capsules, eg this:

(four capsules; this mic gets plugged into a controller box and - if you
buy the most expensive
version you can adjust the width, depth & even height (for surround
sound)  of stereo image 
produced from it.  It is VERY expensive - many thousands of pounds.)
