Penny Arcade: "The 2DS is an odd beast. It’s an entry into a line of 3D systems, with no 3D capabilities. In fact the main selling point is that it can’t do what most of its big brothers can do. Nintendo has long favored a folding design for the 3DS portables, but the 2DS is held open in the hand like a tablet, and can’t fold. Nintendo is full of zigs these days, but the 2DS is most definitely a zag."
