Nintendo is Never Boring

"While everybody expected Nintendo to announce a price drop for the Wii U, I don’t think anybody could have predicted the arrival of Nintendo 2DS. One move gives Nintendo’s newest console a real pair of legs to stand on, while the other takes legs away." (3DS, Nintendo 2DS, Wii U)

im the biggest ninty fan but i just cant figure this move out. i mean is it a development cost, can implemmenting the 3d feature actually cost them so much.

Q:1)why isnt it green in honour of year of luigi
Q:2)if it dont fold, how do i put in sleep mode
Q:3)if it dont fold, how do i get my daily coins.
Q:4)how the hell am i supposed to play all my circle pad
pro games such as MH3,MGS,KH,RESIDENT EVIL since they've once again conviniently left out the second analog.

1) I agree, would look pretty sweet with the L logo on back, as well.
2) A sleep mode button is mentioned in the press release, nobody seems to have mentioned it though, including myself.
3) See 2
4) I only played MGS and Resident Evil and completed both without the slide pad. The controls were passable in MGS, but Resident Evil felt just fine to me.

It only has one screen, apparently it cut costs, but it means no joint and no 3D.
live2play  +   553d ago
youre not who theyre aiming it for buddy
they actually said, if you already enjoy playing in your xl screen, you arent the target audience

this is a cheap alternative for kids, thats all. like a tablet, kids love tablets

Well, since most of N4g community are either 7yrs old or in their Mid 40's acting like their 7yrs old, i asked a couple of 10yr olds and a 12yr old what they thought and the youngest loved it, Its shaped like a Tablet with a camera. The oldest doesn't care. He prefers consoles and and Pc. Me, i broke up with Nintendo when they released the Wii.
when nintendo wants to they can keep a secret like nobody else.

It's a secret to everybody!

I'd like a 2DS in Gameboy Advance's "Glacier Blue" color scheme.

live2play  +   553d ago
there we go you kinda got it

just one thing though, whats rayman shovelware? and wonderful 101? shovelware

i dont think you know the meaning of the word
kirbyu  +   552d ago
Wii Party U isn't shovelware either. Being a party game that isn't Mario Party doesn't make it shovelware.
swice  +   553d ago
Well...it's true

I'm personally getting one for the awesomely new "doorstop" feature. So sweet!

RePost:
2DS is Good for the following reasons (IMO)-

1) 2DS is for children (playing in 3D was proven bad for child neurological development).

2) It is great for people who want to play 3DS games but don't care about 3D.

3) It helps out people in this economy.

4) And if/when Nintendo starts doing more 3DS/2DS integration with the WiiU - more people will get to experience it. (Maybe Smash Bros. or Pokemon or another Monster Hunter game w/ that function).

Yeah, the 2DS announcement came out of nowhere. Nintendo tends to do stuff like this a lot. It's always fun waking up to some random announcement that no one was really anticipating. Nintendo are very, very good secret keepers.

I honestly thought it was a joke until I saw a hands on article from USA Today. Went to Nintendo's website and it was the first thing to greet me.

I don't like the thing at all, but it wasn't made for me. It was made for little kids and impulsive Christmas shoppers. I can see it selling a few units that way.
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   553d ago
LOL
I thought the same.
(I did not think it was a real product).

I like the Price Point of $130 Dollars it is not bad.

If you want to play your old DS games and maybe some new game, albiet without 3D.
