Nintendo 2DS hands-on: surprisingly not the worst thing ever | Polygon

Polygon: "Nintendo's budget-friendly new handheld, the Nintendo 2DS, made its publicly playable debut on the first day of PAX Prime. We took Nintendo's portable curiosity for a spin and found that, despite its bulk, it's actually quite comfortable to use. However, some of the cost-cutting measures have their drawbacks."

The story is too old to be commented.

It looks pretty good in that dude's hands in the pic. Not too big looking at all (unless that guy is the size of the Hulk)

Yep this article shows it is a little more compact (but being able to fold it is still better for your pocket of course, and to protect screen from getting scratched by your door keys)

Idk. I put my fingers on top of my 3DS where the shoulder buttons would be if it was a 2DS and it was very uncomfortable. Granted it could be smaller, but seeing that this is aimed at a younger audience could mean trouble with finger reach. Guess we will see.

The fact its different and cheaper will make it sell like hot cakes, like it already has been. Incredible move Nintendo.

Circle pad placement looks a bit more comfortable. I get a little strain from using it for a while on the 3DS XL. I gots long fingers :/

2DS's main market is clearly kids with the lower price and what appears to be a more durable design.

Tacky headline but nice overview of the system.
