Complaints on 2DS? Why?

Why all the complaints on the 2DS?
1. The size? You can't put it in your pockets?
- NOT EVERYBODY PUT THEIR GAME CONSOLES/HANDHELDS IN THEIR POCKETS.
Seriously, I never put my DS in my pockets when I'm moving from place to place. Do you know how easy it is for thieves to slip your wallet/money/keys/handhelds out of your pockets within less than a second without you realizing it? I am NOT risking that.
I'm almost always at places with loads of people, so I always put it in my bag for safety reasons, and therefore, the size and shape of the 2DS isn't a problem since I'll carry it in my bag anyways. (Before you ask, I never leave the house without a bag.)
2. Not a clamshell?
- IT DOESN'T HAVE HINGES, SO IT DOESN'T SNAP IN TWO.
There are cases where the handheld could slip out of your hands, drop to the floor, you threw it out of rage, or somehow someone else broke it. The 2DS design prevents the device from getting snapped in two.
3. Looks hella uncomfortable?
- DID YOU EVEN TRY PLAYING WITH IT?
First of all, I doubt Nintendo would ever design something hella uncomfortable for their consumers world-wide.
Until someone actually posts a lengthy description on how the 2DS is actually extremely uncomfortable and that it might bring horrible side-effects to the wrist/hand/finger joints and/or muscles and thus children must have restrictions when playing with the 2DS, I am not commenting on this.
However, Nintendo did say they designed it for entry-level - which means, they must have taken child gamers into account, and therefore, designed it so it wouldn't be uncomfortable when held by a child.
4. Just turn off the 3D feature of the 3DS
- NOT EVERYONE HAS A 3DS
How many times have I got to say THIS IS NOT INTENDED FOR PEOPLE WHO ALREADY HAVE THE 3DS?
5. 40$ isn't that much of a deal
- IT IS. JUST THINK OF ALL THE THINGS YOU COULD DO WITH 40$.
It's not as if you can just pick up 40$ from the ground on a random day. 40$ IS big deal, especially considering this is a brand product gaming device.
Also, for those who talk about used 3DS:
If it's the choice between a used 3DS and a new 2DS, at the exact same price, I'm choosing the new 2DS. It has better merits if you don't care about the 3D features, and in exchange for one unnecessary feature, you get a brand new product - how is that not good?
