The 2DS Looks HORRID. Well, someone had to say it!

Over the years, Nintendo has never given me a reason NOT to purchase their hardware. Its always looked spectacular...until now. While the new 2DS comes with its benefits, it still is an awful eyesore! Watch the video below to hear Jamin's thoughts on the 2DS' appearance. (3DS, Mobile, Next-Gen, Nintendo, Nintendo DS)

But is rugged and designed for kids. Do you think they are going to care when they play pokemon X and Y on the thing.

from what i know little kids don't even play pokemon that much, gamers like you play pokemon more then little kids
BlackBusterCritic  +   676d ago
Haha, so true! Kids today are into that Bakugan garbage and beyblade. Us older generation still play pokemon. XD

They should. Thing looks hideous and the kid friendly excuse is nor going to cut it this time!

Good grief Nintendo, you make billions off of your handhelds, use some to hire better hardware shell designers!!

With all the overdesigned electronics coming out nowadays that look good yet function poorly in the long run, the clumsy cheap 2DS is a breath of fresh air. At least with this device you know your 130 bucks will enable you to play 1st party nintendo games for years to come.

Mmmmmmmm, peanut butter and jelly 2DS.

I wish it would include old school GBA support

I love my castlevania carts like aria of sorrow, circle of the moon and harmony of dissonance!

then I would be very tempted to buy one!

So it's shaped like a piece of bread? What's the big deal?
snitch_puck  +   676d ago

I also thought it was ugly but once you consider that It's designed for kids and the function is supposed to be more like a tablet it doesn't seem so bad. It's not meant to be ultra portable but still portable nonetheless. Parents can keep it with them and hand it to the kids on long trips or whenever. It's supposed to be lighter than the 3ds xl too.
if you look at it from the side you can it's not completely flat it slanted slightly. You see they were going for something more like a tablet. Also the pics make it look gigantic but placed side by side a closed 3ds it's not that big.

I have seen kids with all types of DS systems top screen come off because they don't take care of it all that is left would be the bottom touch screen reason why they made it like that.
BlackBusterCritic  +   676d ago
Really? That's crazy! I've never seen, or even heard of a kid actually having that happen! Hinges or not, Nintendo builds some pretty solid portable consoles! I remember all the many times I've dropped my gameboy/gameboypocket/gameboyc olor/gameboyadvance and all I had to do was reinsert the batteries. XD
supersonicjerry  +   676d ago
Yeah, I never thought I would see it but I seen it a couple of times and that's what they had in mind for this and I used to drop my Gameboy advance so much and never did it break by dropping it lol the only thing that did happen was my Down dpad would get stuck

I enjoyed this rant, loved it when he held up the bread slice for a comparison. I laughed out loud, thanks for the video!

I keep wondering what the hell Nintendo are doing this decade...
Sorasixx  +   676d ago
Do I eat it lol jk Nintendo why r u making a Device that looks like a Piece of bread maybe it does need peanut butter and jelly to make a Sandwich. Lol
Kydawg  +   676d ago
Now im gonna have to worry about accidentally popping it in the toaster every morning. Especially after I apply my "whitebread" skin on it.

They should have tried a tablet design of some sort.
mpnothanks  +   676d ago
Yeah, looks weird but i don't see a reason to be upset over it. It's not like they did away with the 3DS and replaced it with this.
Iltapalanyymi  +   676d ago
This looks like the most retarded piece of junk I've ever seen.

Nintendo, you've failed big time. First your Wii U, and now this?

Have fun going out of business.

What's next? WiifukU?

That thing is a childs toy, period.

The build quality looks cheap and awful.

I wouldn't spend a penny on that junk.
