2DS

Having just purchased a 3DS XL I’ve been going on and on about how Nintendo seems to understand handheld consoles better than anyone else.  Well they just made an announcement that surprised just about everyone.  The 2DS is like a 3DS without a hinge and without the 3D feature.  It’s actually quite brilliant.



The 3DS and 3DS XL aren’t cheap.  If a younger gamer wants to get a hold of one it is going to hit their parents right in the wallet.  On top of that, while the 3DS is pretty sturdy that hinge can break.  Nintendo just announced a cheaper, sturdier version of their game system to make sure they have the market sealed up.  The only thing it doesn’t have is the 3D feature.  Since I’ve owned my 3DS XL I’ve only turned the 3D on two or three times and even then it was quickly turned back off.

  1. Nice. David's been asking for a 3DS for Christmas, only because he wants the new games that aren't compatible with his current DSi. I'm still not happy that we have to upgrade, but I'm glad there's a cheaper alternative.
