2DS hardware review – 3DS without the 3D | Metro

Metro - "It’s been a roller-coaster ride for the 3DS so far. When it was initially unveiled to the press in 2010 the response was euphoric, probably the most uniformly positive we’ve seen for any new hardware. But that was back when 3D gaming seemed like it would be the next big thing – making it seem as if Nintendo was well ahead of the curve in creating a console with glasses-free stereoscopic 3D as its primary selling point." (2DS, Nintendo DS) -

While I love the 3D effect on my 3DS, I guess this makes sense. Not everyone wants to have the 3D element because they may find it cheesy or ineffective. Not to mention there are some people out there who are Stereoscopic blind, and cannot see 3D at all. So this handheld would appeal to them more. Not to mention it is cheaper too. Some kids in the 5-7 year old range would benefit as well since doctors recommend that no children under 7 should watch any sort of 3D movies or play 3D games.

I'm still not a big fan of its design, but I do agree. A cheaper option that can play all the same games is a brilliant idea. Parents will flock to this during the holidays because they can get Pokemon and the handheld to play it on for less than $200.

When one of my kids broke the screen on the 3ds, i told them i wasnt buying another one. But then this one does look appealing from the price perspective.

Id like to know if Nin will be making a CCPro for it. i have the CPPro for the 3ds for certain games but if the option of transfering content from one to the other will not apply then....

I guess i could always get the broken one fixed from a 3rd party.

"3DS without the 3D"

Since I can't see the 3D this is a better value for me
