First impressions: Hands-on with Nintendo 2DS | Game Guys

When covering video games, sometimes judging with your hands is more important than with your eyes or ears.

It's hard not to review the Nintendo 2DS -- launching Oct. 12 for $130 -- without seeming a bit puzzled. Forget that there's no 3-D capability (hence the 2DS name). This version of Nintendo's popular handheld ditches the clamshell design. So, instead of opening and closing the handheld as you would with 3DS and earlier DS models, the 2DS arrives with a slate form factor. (Next-Gen, Nintendo 2DS)

When describing the 2DS the ONLY word that I can use to describe it is FUGLY.

Everyone says it's ugly, until they actually use the thing, and then it seems they like it.

So what matters ?

How it ACTUALLY is ?

or

How people THINK it is ?

I can see why Nintendo are offering a 2DS but I am puzzled by the design of it. I think they should of kept it as a flip but made it look different to the 3DS so people know. I don't see the current version of the 2DS selling to well but then again I could be wrong.

I don't think protecting the screens will be an issue. Many of the tablets these days don't have that little gap between the plastic and the screen itself, yet people hand them off to their kids instantly.
