Nintendo Disable YouTube Comments/Rating on 2DS Reveal

It's fair to say that the 2DS reveal has garnered mixed reactions. Some love the idea and are especially excited at the potential this has for their children, others see it as ugly and not cheap enough. Nowhere will this have got more out of hand than on YouTube, and that's only evidenced by the fact Nintendo have disabled comments and rating on the 2DS reveal trailer.

Not very innovative like Nintendo are known for that's for sure but people are making a huge deal out of nothing in my opinion

I thought it was pretty dumb at first, but that's because it doesn't cater to me. This is literally a device meant for very young children. In that regard, I respectfully ignore the platform. My XL works just fine for me and this is not a bad alternative for parents who want to get a version of this thing for their kids.

Edit: Specifically in regards to your comment, I think you're right. People really are making a mountain out of a molehill on this one.

the 2ds is the ultimate babysitter lol. just give it to a kid, tell they to go away and play lol.

you'll never hear from them again until they are hungry or something lol.

good move on nintendo part.

It's a clever move. Get rid of everything parents dislike about the 3DS - the 3D, the potential of broken hinges - and knock the price in time for Christmas.

Retailers will have it below £100 before the holidays.

The problem is that sometimes the core gamer can't appreciate that not every announcement is directly for them. For a person with a 3DS and every game released for it, this seems like a non-announcement. For some kid who can now play Pokemon X & Y, it's the biggest announcement of the year.

It's just another case of "nintendo is damned if they do and damned if they don't"

I see no issue with the 2DS. Consumer choice is rarely a bad thing in my opinion. When I saw it I initially thought it was a pretty cool idea. I was quite frankly surprised when I saw how people were ragging on it.

I bet anything these babies will be flying off the shelves at Christmas.

People like to talk negative about anything they don't understand, we've all done it, but hopefully most of us realize it and keep it to a minimum.

When people don't understand, they reach, and make things up based on what they THINK they know.

But they really don't know.

Try one, use it, play a game with it, hold it, then see how much you hate it.

Got to love control but I do understand why they decided to take way comments and ratings especially after what happened to Cheerios.

People are complaining/making fun of a SKU designed for children.

I'm not sure what's more childlike, who the 2DS is marketed for, or the people who are against it

bitboi1930d ago

And that's why i don't see why people are all like wtf?! THIS SYSTEM IS NOT FOR YOU! what is so hard to understand about that simple concept.

knifefight1930d ago

People are pretty entitled. They think everything SHOULD be made just for them and if it isn't, then that product is stupid and lame.

PopRocks3591930d ago

Look at my comment above. I got a number of disagrees for saying exactly that lol.

Eonjay1930d ago

The commercial feature more adults than children.

knifefight1930d ago

And who usually buys the games for the children? ;)

OMNlPOTENT1930d ago

First people complain about the 3d being a gimmick and how it hurts their head.. Now people complain because Nintendo made a system without the 3d for people who don't want the 3d?

optimus1930d ago

people that don't want 3d could simply turn it off..and for the record nintendo prides itself on being a company for EVERYONE...the 2ds does not say "not for gamers older than 8."
