Why The 2DS Will Make Bank For Nintendo

GR - "Nintendo does not market to the hardcore market. Though it might be fair to say that in recent years, it’s been marketing to no one.

When I tell new people in my social circles that I’m a game journalist, a number of them will tell me, “Oh! I have a Wii!” (3DS, Nintendo, Nintendo 2DS)

I honestly don't think we will see a big turn out. The tablet like design will definitely catch some kids eyes though. I still see a lot parents buying a iPad or android tablets even after this thing releases.

Exclusives really don't attract to kids like they do with teenagers and adults.

Also games on tablets tend to be whole lot cheaper than dedicated handhelds.

tablets dont even have joysticks, nor slider pads = poor comparisons .

2DS and tablets dont mix, even with the same games, no joysticks = no joy (:
