Gimme Gimme Games wonders whether the successor to the Nintendo 3DS should be designed like a normal 3DS, like the 2DS, or like something else entirely.
Clamshell, next question.
Clamshell. I can't go back to one screen. Feels inferior to me.
Clam-shell, won't be 3D, as powerful as the Vita, but Sony may have 1 more shot at handhelds, doubt it though/
With the slate children can throw it all they like and there will be little risk of breakage. Nintendo makes resiliant consoles/handhelds, good luck breaking that through general use. The 2DS is marketed to Children, while the tablet look could've been better, it's supposed to be a cheap alternative. 6 year olds don't care about how it looks, as long as they get fun games to play it could be in the shape of a dildo for all they care (not that they would make a dildo handheld, but I think I made my point). They will be too fixated on Mario and Pokemon to care
Still don't know why they don't do the whole swivel mechanic like the sidekick.
I have a feeling that the next Gameboy will take a ton of inspiration from the current Wii U controller. The 2DS is already heading that way, I wouldn't be surprised to see the next handheld look like the Wii U controller and probably be used for remote play similar to how Sony plans to use the Vita for the PS4.
Bring back the Gameboy name.
why you talking about successor already
