Nintendo is making a new 2DS, releasing on the 12th of October. With this, they'll be slicing the price of the Wii U, so if you want the Wii U, that's when to get it. I personally think this new "2DS" is going to be a pretty much waste. It's a 3DS that isn't 3D, but it can play all games, including the 3DS games. Just turn the 3D off. Here's the official website.

TheJJ405 : Though that's spam, yes, indeed it is, "OH LAWD". I'm not really looking forward to this. Nintendo could really do better. They're the only company I really respect other than Capcom and a few others, but...

I'm all for them making a budget system, but I think it should be more at the $99 range rather than $129.  The design is just funky.  It is no longer a fit in pocket system, it's an awkward tablet size.  But I dunno, it might appeal to someone.  I just don't see it.

jparks34 : I agree. A budget system is fine, but something that won't fit in your pocket just for the benefit that you can get by turning off 3D on your 3DS for $129? And neither do I see the appeal. I won't harass anyone who likes it, I respect their opinion, but... really, Nintendo?

I guess this can be useful, but with the wii u failing to sell in the masses I can not see why nintendo are wasting there money on this.

Since 3D tends to hurt my eyes, I would've opt to buy this one instead. However, the price of it plus how it looks doesn't feel worth it.

goodboy : The Nintendo 2DS has absolutely 0% purpose. Like you said, it is basically a Nintendo 3DS without the 3D.
This is not very valuable. How much are they selling this for? If it is over $300, it's a rip off. Personally, I think they should stop trying to just recreate one of their old creations and just give it a different name. A Nintendo 2DS is the exact same thing as a Nintendo DS. Anyways, I hope you understand my point of view on this topic. If you do... great! If you don't.... meh, that's fine. Everyone has opinions.

Yeah I know, this is completely ridiculous, it looks sort of like a pad and you can't even close it, I think it is just going to be a complete waste, the 3ds is better, and if you don't like the 3d, just turn it off, it is that simple. I don't really like it and I think it is a waste of money, I personally don't really use the 3d feature on the 3ds so I just turn it off because it hurts my eyes. I think this is just not appealing to me, some might like it, but I don't see the sense in getting one when you can get a 3ds that can fit into your pocket and can turn the 3d on and off at will. But oh well.

Although it's nice that they are offering a cheaper console, it still is not worth it. It will probably have better battery life, and will look nice, but it will be way too bulky. should have gone with the great GBA SP design they have used ever since.

But if it included a 2nd circle pad, it could have some use, but without it, the price is the only plus. The biggest problem is the design. the select button being right under the d-pad is great, and this thing just is so spread out.

goodboy : I thought it was weird at first too, but when thinking about further I feel like it's a good plan for them.

Nintendo has a lot of handheld fans that are around age 7...which warnings on the 3DS box says that younger children should not play the 3DS in 3D mode for fear of damaging their eyesight. Also, the new design is much more kid friendly (non clamshell style, more rigid) So this not only is a cheaper option for parents, it's also more durable. Since one of their flagship franchises is having a huge release this fall (Pokemon) it makes sense they would make an option like this to get more people into the platform.

Razor-987 :
patar4097 :

Mistress : I would argue that the price point is about as low as it can be for what it is. Pretty much on the low end of pricing for any other option out there for kids today.

Jordanv78 : Hm, I seemed to be raging about this due to bias. But, after listening to your point, you're absolutely right. I never thought of the younger children who weren't really disgruntled with the 3D and were messing with their eyes. And with you saying that, it brings me to the point: Children who want 3DS for the games can get this, which is cheaper and has no major risk of hurting their eyes.

I can see what you mean here. You're right.

Jordanv78 : I'm not arguing that the price is too high. Good price for what it is. But I didn't think about little kids and the 3d thing. And the feel looks like it will be comfortable like the xl, but the price is good there. Looking at it now, it's a much better system then I originally thought.

Jordanv78 : You are absolutely right about it being for 7 year old. It actually comes out on the same day as pokemon X&Y


The 2ds is basically for younger kids that can't use the 3d.
Reggie Fils-aime even said that it was made for kids under 7.
Also, it is cheaper to make then the 3ds since it is actually only one screen with plastic over the top part so you cant use the top as a touch screen.

If Nintendo wants more sales they should just cheapen the retail price of the Wii U not make a new console which is completely worthless since you can turn the 3D off on the 3DS only a idiot would buy the 2DS or someone that wants to use it for collection purposes.

austipokedude : Wow....

They kinda just price dropped the Wii U to $300. So unless that isn't a good enough deal, then suck it up.

The 2ds is for families with children under 7 and is more durable and cheaper to make.
Also, it is a good deal for families without a lot of money.

If it would have released alongside the 3ds and had a clam shell design i would have definitely gotten one over a 3ds. It may actually be a pretty smart move on nintendos part.

Also, the Wii U is way cheaper than both Xbone and Ps4.

Well it's nice to see Nintendo took in all the criticism  that came with the 3DS, like for example the fact that the 3D mode hurts the gamers eyes, but they really didn't need to make another handheld (basically the 3DS) just without the 3D mode, that's why there is a 3D off switch on the 3DS. My opinion of the 2DS, its just a 3DS just in 2D, its not offering any significant  new features and honestly I think Nintendo is on it's last leg and is trying to get money any way they can think of.
