Michael Pachter believes the 2DS is a great idea and should prove financially viable for Nintendo.
The World is Ending Pachter says something positive about Nintendo move. 2DS isn't needed if you have one 3DS or 3DS XL. So don't bother unless you have 3D all together.
It's a cheaper handheld introduction console for adults to buy as gifts for their children.
that means this will be a flipity flop sigh... hopefully its wrong and it does well. im not a fan of it but you never know. ill stick to the original 3ds. oddly it works in some aspect.
I believe Pachter's been pretty confident in Nintendo's place in the handheld market; it's just their developments in the console race he's been consistently negative about.
It's for 5 year olders.
Does this mean the opposite will happen?
I personally don't like the look of that design. They should have kept it a little more like the other DSs.
Looks ugly as hell. Better off getting 3ds for little extra tbh.
The design is great for 7yr olds , easy to hold and if they drop it then it wont snap in half
well... i already have a 3ds but... you know... USA isn't the only place in the world that buy videogames, and in countrys like mine US$40 diference is very big. I dare say that all my friends that don'thave 3ds will buy one o these and get pokemon ZY for sure.
For once patcher says somthing smart. i guess thats his thing, state the obvious,when it happens"i called it"!
what would someone have to be smoking to buy a 2ds, when a 3ds is just $40 more expensive? this thing doesnt even look playable. its garbage.
Looks like the 2ds will flop.
The design is horrible.
Everybody know parents are going to eat this up this holiday season.
It's a good decision for gamers (who don't care about the 3d or how their system looks at all) and for Nintendo (people will buy it simply because it's a cheaper way to play Pokemon/whatnot). Honestly, I didn't believe it when I first heard it.
the 2DS will out sell the PS VITA by it's self. entry level PS VITA:$200 entry level 2ds/3ds:$130 32GB memory card:$270 ($70) 32gb class 10 sd card:$150-$170 ($20-$40) 1 GAME:$310 1 GAME:$190-$210
agreed, once these 2ds are on some sweet black Friday sales with a good game like SMTIV or Fire Emblem for $100-$120 I'll be grabbing one I want one, but I'm cheap, plus, there are only a handful of 3ds games I want, I have a ds already *edit, just watched this youtube vid; http://www.youtube.com/watc... this thing doesn't fold?? I'm not sure how I feel about that
Pachter just jinxed the 2DS. This man really hates Ninty for some reason.
pachter says alot of things, only 1 out of 99% is true.
