Game Informer - After getting my hands on the device at PAX Prime 2013, I walked away surprised by how good the system feels and how compact it is.
I think I misjudged it. At first I thought it was this huge slab. But after watching IGN's unboxing video, it looks pretty cool and different. It really is small and compact, lol.
The thing to me is, why not spend $40 to get the 3DS? This should be in the $99 range.
Totally agree... to me, "budget" is the $99 price point... at $130, you might as well spring for the extra and get something that closes shut, and has the 3D (even if you don't use it like myself). Also, I know there are DS games that REQUIRE you to open and close the system during gameplay ... are they no longer compatible?
obviously because this is sturdier and has a better battery, thus good for dumb kids who drop the 3ds a lot and need to be kept quiet in the car for an extended period of time.
this thing does look comfier than a vita, 3DS. Im guessing that the new smash bros for the 3DS will launch bundled with the 2DS ((((XL))))
you cant say anything bad about sony on this site without being bubbled down even if its an opinion.
bubbles schmubbles (;
the 2ds is going to outsell the P.O.S Vita alone. GG Nintendo
Not surprised, Nintendo makes great handhelds, this is going to sell big in christmas
If there is one thing that Nintendo does well it is handhelds. Message boards can laugh at its naming and design all it want but when parents are getting something for their kids, these Nintendo handhelds systems are always at the top of the list. The 2Ds will be no different. You can take that one to the bank.
Everyone got optimistic all of the sudden
I think it looks cool, kinda like a game boy advance 2. those triggers look much improved to me.
How are supposed to play Pocket Monsters (Pokémon), when the damm thing doesn't even fit in your pocket?
yeah like the original DS, gameboy color, or gameboy EVER fit in pockets.
They should rename it backpack monsters, or Bapamon (tm)
And a little while ago everyone was saying how stupid the 2Ds is now its the greatest thing ever. It just goes to show you that you really cant judge a console by its design.
I think people are seriously missing the point if the device and whom it's geared towards even though Nintendo have clarified. I feel people just see the name Nintendo and don't think about what they are saying or giving it a chance. Online media are quickly becoming more and more like mainstream media and that's sad.
