    Huge, clunky design, not very portable, screens prone to scratching, missing features, no 3D.
    In short: No.

    You tell us, do you like it?

    Coz i dont own it. From what iv seen tho, it looks ugly. I dont like the button position or layout. The lack of 3D isnt a big deal since i play with the 3D off but the fact it doesnt fold is a huge issue because i like to carry my original 3DS in my pocket and there is no way i could do that with the 2DS.

    Sure, I like the 2DS. It sells quite well, which means Nintendo will have more money to make excellent games for me to play on my XL.

    I like that the 2DS has evenly spaced pixels as it lacks a parallax barrier screen it also cannot scratch its top screen via the bottom. unfortunately, Its not a clamshell and that is disappointing as it does not fit in a pocket and can get scratched in situations that the clamshell design would protect it.

    I'll get one because I own one of every model that comes out.

    Not sure if I'll play it, but at least I'll have yet another unit for Streetpass.

    You've never handled one have you? If you have, then you would know that it isn't clunky at all is very comfortable to hold.

    If I wanted a new battleaxe then I'd take one.

    In all honesty, no.
    It's a monstrosity imho.
    Event tho it feels pretty okay and isn't all that bad.

    Off topic but I was giving serious consideration to buying one for my little cousin but she grew up with a DS Lite and an Acekard. Sure the console may be affordable but I know that she'll have to bug her parents a LOT if she wants the latest 3DS games instead of relying on roms and flashcarts.

    To be honest, now that I think about it, I might as well just get her a cheap Android tablet instead.

    It's shaped like a doorstop. I would much rather have a similar design to the Wii U gamepad, which is is more shaped after your hands and is very comfortable.
    Maybe the 2DS isn't as uncomfortable as it looks. But it can't possibly be as comfortable as the gamepad with that design.

    I don't know. Help.
    At first I wasn't very positive because it looked pretty ridiculous. Then the day of the Pokemon X and Y release I got a good look at one and decided to try it. I have to say it was much more comfortable and smaller than I expected and now I definitely think it's an option for those who are interested. Of course if you have a solid financial situation and all I don't see a reason for you not to buy a 3DS XL...

    I like the shoulder buttons, I don't like the rest (at least visually, I don't own one).

    On the side note, can't wait for that 2DS Circle Pad Pro. :yay:

    Hold it, then say that. Its actually really really comfortable, none of your fingers are cramped, they're all formed around it naturally. It's awesome.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    To be honest. I am not here to judge one another. I do not own 3DS XL but from my point of view that 3DS XL do looks better than 2DS. However, 2DS is something that kids who are not familiar to 3D world and that some kids/young adults who are familiar with 3D but do not care about 3D so it is perfect for them, actually. That's all. :)

    I went to best buy to see it, it's ok if you're buying it for someone, like a child or for a birthday present
    But I still think my 3ds XL is much better, its worth the extra 60
