Practically everyone I know switches off the 3D anyway, so it makes sense. Though I'm not sure about the design.

Certainly a strange choice of design and name, but I might actually get my kids one of these.

The only reason this exists is for people that can't afford a 3DS. Am I right? :lol:

This system is being released the same day as Pokemon X/Y. They want parents who are scared of the 3D to buy this new system for their Pokemon obsessed kids.

Of course, the 3D isn't recommended for kids, either, so these parents might be right to be wary of the 3D and glad of the option.

I just don't want my kids touching my 3DS with their filthy little meathooks. They can gum up their own device, and if I can do that for $100 less, why not?

So let's see if I have this straight.

+ $40 cheaper.
- Doesn't fold. No protection for the screens and harder to transport.
- No 3D.
- Ugly design.
- Uncomfortable to use (especially the bottom touch screen).
- Mono speakers.

I can understand Nintendo wanting to make a cheaper 3DS for the holidays, but this is what they came up with? Why?

Re: Nintendo 2DS.
 
Nintendo can never just make a minor variant of one of their products, apparently. They always have to change everything else along with it!

Yeah, unless the flipping mechanism was a major source of costs, I'm not sure why they decided to go with such a large change.

Please tell me this is a joke. Did they not loose enough money with the 3DS and Wii U they can't wait to throw away even more?

This is a joke right, a 2ds to play 3ds games without the 3D, this cant be real, come on, this is some made up internet thing.

They're making plenty on the 3DS nowadays, in fact it's put them in profit for the first time in 2 years.

And this should be ok as well as the margins will be a lot higher.

Also the first 3DS Pokemon game is finally coming out in Oct. That should be a huge seller.

Isn't this just a Game Boy? An awkward Game Boy with a touch screen?
