So... The only plus side in that title is a better battery life...

Man, I understand this is for younger kids, but it's crazy how many drawbacks this thing has. It doesn't look as nice, it's not as loud with mono speakers, same screen size as 3DS, no 3D, weighs more, can't fold to put in your pocket. I just don't know how well this thing is going to sell...

it's basically a ploy to get more kids to buy pokemon :D

Kalebninja1548d ago

they dnt need to wrry bout pokemon everyone with a 3ds will get it

Snookies121548d ago

Lol, I'm just curious as to how many units this will sell. I mean sure, I hope it does sell for Nintendo's sake, but I don't see it going too well from my perspective. D:

Abriael1548d ago

@kalebninja: that's exactly the point. Offering a cheaper 3DS for kids so that MORE people with a 3(or2)DS will get it.

I think very well. I mean 3D was a feature keeping parents from buying the system for their kids and kept people from buying it in general. And the price is way cheaper so that's always a plus with parents.

Also, look at the release date for the 2DS--the same as Pokemon X and Y.

They are getting us used to the Non-clam shell design.

The next handheld will be like the Wii U gamepad. It basically is their next handheld, so imagine Wii U gamepad + added features and tech about 5-6 years from now.

That's interesting, Nintendo going back to their Game Boy Advance design, which I did like a lot.

It'll make it harder to carry in one's pocket, though.

Its probably designed to not break as easy as the 3ds. I read in the review that the 3ds is for 7yo+ maybe this is for little kids

Battery life
4gb SD card instead of a 2gb one

I think some casuals will see it as a new handheld and not a downgrade

ajames3471548d ago

Agreed. Or at least one without the 3D feature that most people can't handle (me included) anyway.

I seriously thought this was fake.

Abriael1548d ago

I thought april fool in august.

ajames3471548d ago

I know. That trailer this morning was just unreal.

Foxgod1548d ago

Its going to be difficult to fold this thing...

ajames3471548d ago

More like impossible lol It doesn't fold back at all.

Foxgod1548d ago (Edited 1548d ago )

I know right, that is what makes it so difficult :D

Knack!!, shi... not what i hoped for...

Kydawg1548d ago

That's a really good idea! Why in the world wouldn't they make it fold?

Next, Nintendo will release a Wii u without the game pad.
