Nintendo just announced the Nintendo 2DS (wat?)... So, here's the trailer.
very very strange... I'm definitely not buying one didn't believe this was real at first BTW, it's $130
I know I wasn't only one who thought today was April Fools. Man that design. I'm sure Nintendo is targeting this thing towards tablet crowd but I doubt it work out the way they hope it would.
apparently it is geared towards 7 and under, as according to Nintendo the 3DS (w/ 3D) should not be used by 7 and unders
Is it XL size?
very stupid concept since 3D could be deactivated on 3DS. if people want 2DS they just buy NDS imo
They took away a dimension and then used that as its marketing name! LOL!
I think they are just working their way down to the 1DS (one direction special) which would certainly sell to the teen female market better
Is it me or is the design hideous ?
Why not call it 3DLess :D
wth is Nintendo thinking with this... I like that they are trying to find a cheaper alternative to attract more consumers... but this??? I guess it's for little children.. parents won't have to be concerned about 3D having a detrimental effect on their eyes?
Wow. I think the only way that this will sell is if its way less expensive than the 3ds. Else, forget it.
It already said it will be a "value" so I'm guessing it will be cheaper. My only beef is the shape of it. Looks like it won't fold shut to fit in pocket.
it's $130, IGN confirmed
That's not much of a reduction. Especially once you include the price of the pouch to save the screens.
Yeah I wish it could fold. We have two 3dsxl's and when folded it's still too big. Looks like the 2ds can't.
Wait a minute, it looks like it can't fold. How is that compact? I think it's a great idea since it will be cheaper without the 3d technology, but not letting it fold shut is stupid. It's like a big old ipad.
Next is the 1DS Here it is: http://www.defunctgames.com...
Finally - A way to keep the door from shutting without holding it myself!
I'm all for nintendo handhelds, and even revisions of there existing consoles but this ? LOL
2DS?! LOL They should've called it the 'ThereWasNoWayWeWereGoingT oLetTheVitaBeTheSamePriceAsOurH andheldSoWeHaveToDropSomeFeatur esToLowerThePriceDS.'
The 3DS is $170 though.
But if I'm not mistaken its XL size so its actually $70 less than its 3DS counterpart.
3DS = $170 3DS XL = $200 2DS = $130
@ SonyNGP Yeah, you're right. I forgot that the regular 3DS was a lot cheaper than the 3DS XL, which is €217 where I live.
Wow looks amazing, I might have considered getting this because I don't care for 3D anyway.
how does it look amazing at all??
I don't see a problem with new visual. sorry..
looks like a childs toy, like one of those leap frog things.
You know when China do those console rip off's....thats what it looks like
It's supposed to be a child's toy, it's targeted at kids under 7. That's also why it's cheaper.
Looks amazing? It looks amazingly uncomfortable.
I know ive always said that i would buy a 3DS without 3D at a lower price but why the heck did they get rid of the clam shell design? BTW it looks butt ugly.
Have Nintendo lost it...no I mean seriously was this actually needed.
no they haven't. This good for those under the age 7 who aren't allowed to view 3d image
