    but maybe nintendo did something so that the 2ds so that it does not work with flash carts
    i mean it must have similar but very different firmware compared to a 3ds. i don't think that making a 2ds is as simple as taking out the 3d screen
    it must have had a lot of hardware changes, no matter how similar they are.

    2DS is just a 3DS without 3D.

    Difference between 3ds and 2ds is the screen is one and the sleep switch. (also the table design) Inside it's just a 3ds.

    I wonder if the 2ds specific firmware code resides in the 3ds version 6.0 as well. Example being the "2DS" boot logo and the menu based wifi on/off toggle. Hmm.

    LOL, so Nintendo went really lazy with the 2DS. I would probably buy it if only it was at $100.

    If the 2DS boots DS games then it'll also boot flashcards.
    Ninty can't really patch that out.

    The price is around 20% cheaper than the 3DS. In this 20%, you loose 3D, and can't fold the DS anymore. Beside, the size is huge. No revision, it's exactly the same. So, this is stunning expensive. It should be 1/2 of the price if they really wanted to be competitive.

    You realize Nintendo makes both the 3DS and 2DS, right? They don't need to compete with themselves.:rolleyes: But I'm just playing smartass... I know you meant if they wanted to actually sell the 2DS.

    I've seen several unboxing vids that clearly show a 2ds boot logo.Weird that he isn't seeing that. Can't wait till tomorrow so I can investigate this oddity myself.
