I wish they had made a 2DS with a normal design. I would have been on board with that at $130.

Wouldn't downgrading a 3DS make it a DS+
Its like getting a LED 3Dtv without the 3D, which would just make it a LEDtv.... kinda beats the soul purpose.

Games are the purpose, not a visual feature.

If this is priced right, then this could be huge for nintendo, now for their WiiU on the other hand... They might want to do a revision too as well? Maybe with a different name, since I can't tell you how many times people ask me if the Wii U is an addon for the wii.
