Re: Nintendo 2DS.

Here's Nintendo's DS family beginning in 2004:

Nintendo DS
Nintendo DS Lite
Nintendo DSi
Nintendo DSi XL
Nintendo 3DS
Nintendo 3DS XL
Nintendo 2DS

Nintendo use the same naming scheme (adding one or two letters as a suffix or a prefix) for revisions and successor systems. That's what causes the confusion. I can completely understand why many people thought that the 3DS was just a 3D version of the DS after the DS Lite, DSi, and DSi XL.

The DSi was also a separate system; there just weren't very many DSi-only games released.

Really? Wow, I had no idea. I knew about the DSi store, but I had no idea that there were cartridges that only worked on the DSi.

6, DSiWare titles experimentally put on cartridge to test if it was really worth it. The 3DS came out a few months later.

They're white like the 3DS ones but have DSi on the box and cartridge.

Re: Nintendo 2DS.

There were also some games that were officially DS games but supported some DSi features (such as the camera.) Those work fine on a 3DS, too.

I think the DSi concept was really just a testbed for some of the 3DS infrastructure, as it doesn't seem like it was ever seriously pushed on its own.
