    Nintendo announced the 2DS today, a new entry-level handheld system. The 2DS will be available for $129.99 on October 12th (the same day as Pokemon X and Y) and features a slate-like design rather than the clamshell seen on DS and 3DS models. No 3d functionality but otherwise fully compatible with all 3ds and DS games.

    I'm sorry Nintendo. I wanted a 2DS, but the lack of a clamshell design is a dealbreaker.

    Yep, I know people who always turn off the 3D-Effect. Seems Nintendo is now trying to provide a cheaper system for exactly such people.

    Ugly? Well... could sure look nicer. But I don't think it's soooo bad. I'm one of those people who mostly using their handhelds at home, so it's not so bad for me that the whole thing is a little bigger.

    :ha:

    Yknow what's funny about this? They had a hard enough time convincing people the 3DS was a new console. Why make this even HARDER on themselves?
    Nintendo: "Ok ok ok, so the 3DS plays DS games and 3DS games. The DS can only play DS games and not 3DS games. But we also have a 2DS that plays 3DS games and DS games, but there are no 2DS games. Yes I know the 2DS is less then 3DS but it still plays 3DS and DS games. The DS is just less then 2DS and 3DS so it only plays DS games. Do you understand now?"
