    Actually that's what I was thinking when I originally read the press release. Sadly no :glare:

    It makes sense for them to lower the price of the 2DS with the New 3DS coming out soon.

    Decisions decisions. A cheap 2DS just to get those few 3DS releases I sort of want to play out of the way, or wait for a new 3DS and hope for miracles?

    $99 (aka 99€ and 99£) are still too much for the worst console of the 3DS line. I hope they have a game included or something.

    Actually £89, but yes, I do agree. I'm sort of interested in the device (US price point, but still), but a "New 2DS" would be more interesting than the new 2DS models released for the holiday season.

    Wait for a cheap New 2DS? (Which I can see happening in the next big Nintendo game release)

    This look was "in" in the 90's if I'm not mistaken.

    I don't want to see the inside of the handheld while I play games. That's creepy. :(

    God so ugly, really looks like some cheap children toy which you can get in your average coin park.
    Whatever floats your boat I guess

    I must confess, I would love a see-through like this for my 3DS XL. :gba:

    Probably not happening anytime soon.

    New 3DS featured an improved 3D screen. Since 2DS doesn't do 3D there is no point in putting the new screen in. That and the fact that 2DS is a budget model. It makes more sense for Nintendo to use 2DS to clear out old parts than using new parts.

    For people who always have the 3D effect disabled it doesn't really affect them so that for some isn't a selling point, I know for it wouldn't be. The better hardware and exclusives would be.

    I thought Nintendo was stupid for the whole 2DS thing, but I see a lot of people with them these days, and 99$? That's a fine price for a huge library of DS and 3DS games.
    And I bought my OG 3DS for 250$...

    Between insane and insecure
    Now if only they could take some inspiration from the 3DS and change the chase something less shit.
    I've owned a 2DS for over a year now. It's bulky and awkward to carry around, the screen needs protection, and dusk and shit gets stuck under the joystick all the time. If I wasn't poor, I could have bought a real 3DS by now.

    I wish there was Atomic Purple and Smoke Black. I like the see-through look but these really look cheap (just like the 2DS in general).
