"Very recently, Nintendo unveiled the 2DS device to consumers in the NA and EU regions. The device itself is a 3DS without both of the folding abilities and 3D capabilities.
What has been interesting about the reveal of this product is that the gaming media has pretty much written it off as a joke, rather than actually looking at the way the device is designed and who the target audience actually is. Essentially, they just haven’t thought this through." - Attack On Gaming
