*deep breath*

This is actually a great move by Nintendo.
The Wii-U and 3DS sales have not really been up to par. Even with the 3DS price cut and interesting games for both consoles, Nintendo just can't seem to pull the sales they want.
The Nintendo 2DS, at first glance, is probably the stupidest move made by Nintendo.
But it isn't.
The retail price is going to be $129.99. A very affordable price in comparison to the 3DS price. This console comes out October 12th, the exact same day Pokemon X and Y are released. Many fans of Pokemon don't own a 3DS because they can't afford it/Don't want to waste the money for one game. The 2DS will allow the fans to afford it, and be able to play the latest game.
Now look at the design. It's a 3DS flattened out to be a tablet, and it loses its 3D capabilities.
This will now appeal to parents of younger children. It has a more durable design then any other DS model. There is no hinge that can easily be broken by the child, and it looks like it can take a good fall. Definitely childproof, and a great way to let the next generation of gamers to be introduced. No headaches from 3D either!
And with the Wii-U price cut, Wii-U Legend of Zelda bundle, and new titles for the Wii-U and 3DS, Nintendo is in a great position for the holiday season.

TL;DR I applaud the move Nintendo is making here, they are making all the right moves for the upcoming holiday season.

If a handheld system cannot fit in your pocket, then can it really be called as such?

A handheld is a handheld if it can be held in the hand.

I can see why you might not have guessed this though.

I think it's a great move by Nintendo. I mean I think the design could be a bit better but meh, I'm not Nintendo. I'll stick with my 3DS XL though.

Think about it. It's cheaper than a 3DS, and it's perfect for those of us who want the games without 3D. Also, no dealing with broken hinges.
User avatar #34 to #15 - noblexfenrir (09/01/2013) [-]
It's basically a win-win, It's a much cheaper DS system that can actually play 3DS games, and nintendo gets to sell off all the unused parts they've accumulated.

If some people can't tell that the Wii U is a new console and not an accessory, why the flying **** did Nintendo decide to call the new 3ds model a 2ds? I know there's no 3d in it, but now it just sounds like a different handheld that requires its own games altogether.

And why by a "2ds" when one could get a "3ds" for hardly any more money? The one with the 3 in it is obviously newer and that's the one little Johny wants, right?

If it wasn't for how silly this looks, I'd definitely buy one.
I don't use the 3D function of my 3DS right now, and the screen's hinge is very fragile.

It's way cheaper and the 3D on the 3DS kinda sucked
User avatar #35 - demandsgayversion ONLINE (09/01/2013) [-]
In case nobody heard, I guess the way the 3ds does 3d is REALLY bad for children's eyes.

For the kids, you dumbass.
