With the 2DS, Nintendo is fixing the wrong problem

Polygon: "Nintendo is trying frantically to fix the wrong problem.

With the announcement of its Nintendo 2DS, a 2D-only version of its 3D portable system, Nintendo has codified what it believes is the company's number one problem: price."

Uurrgh, is it just me or is this thing ugly?

It's a dual-screen device that can't be folded closed! It's definitely extremely bulky looking lol. I'll be sticking with my XL.

Seriously how much does hinges cost... well maybe they went for this unibody design as not to confuse the average consumer.

They are trying a new design out on the public to test their reaction.

The next Nintendo handheld WON'T have a dual screen.

It will be like the Wii U gamepad.

this is only one screen separated by plastic on top, they saved some money by doing this, all of it is touch screen, it was confirmed

Sorry to anyone who disagrees but it does,

its not just you. its hideous.

Gotta agree with this piece.

Nintendo just made the cheapest 3ds possible.

no portable design, single speaker, and no 3d.

The name 2ds is just awful.

2014 Nintendo release the Wii noU without touch screen.

That only plays wii games

GryestOfBluSkies2270d ago

aside from the price, 2d, and imo horrible looks.... i just can't understand why they keep making new models without a second circle pad. i know not all games use it, but how could it hurt to add it

The ugly designs and lack of a second analog are the main reasons why I can't hop on board. If they had made the 2DS look similar to the DSLite with 2 analogs.. Day 1.
