Nintendo 2DS...wait what?

Nintendo Announces 2DS - IGN

I thought for sure I was reading a joke article at first, but it's real, and plays 3DS games without the 3D. It still seems to do everything else the other 3DSes do too.

I guess if there is any + for it, it's only $130.

It's supposed out October 12th, just in time for the Pokebomb.

I'm still trying to find reasons why this exists. I mean...you can just turn down the 3D on the slider if you don't want to play your games in 3D. Not to mention I think the system itself looks really ugly. Though it does look similar to a tablet so could that be what they're going for?

    Its a cheaper version for those who wouldn't use the 3D. It really wasn't a system seller.

    I don't get why its all flat not two parts like all other DS.

    True, even though I'm personally fond of the 3D effect I know many aren't.

    Maybe to make it look more like a tablet? I got nothing.

    I like the design, it is weird but... cute? D: I am not really a fan of 3D, to be honest. The effect is nice, but it gives headaches too often. Question: Are those screens the same size as the XL model?

    I think it's ugly but something about it is appealing.
    Won't be getting one though even if my 3DS somehow stopped working I'd rather just get an XL.

    Reggie specifically says that this mostly exists for families who will inevitably get 3DS' for their children this holiday season. 3D isn't exactly the best thing for a child's eyes and these are quite a bit cheaper.

    That thing looks huge, and way too hard carry around...a reason I stuck with my regular 3DS when the XL came out.

    If it didn't look so ugly and bulky, I'd get it if my 3DS broke because I don't even use the 3D.

    Of course, expect 5 more versions of it, since Nintendo loves to make 10 versions of the same system.

    The shoulder buttons look sexy... Hmm I am tempted to buy one, since the XL has no appeal to me and it is also to expensive ._.

    I think it will appeal those who doesn't like 3D, or simply can't handle the 3D effect. My older brother has that problem and he says it feels like he's getting drunk in a bad way. And since 3D technology does take a chunk of the price for a 3DS, I think the 2DS is going to be significantly cheaper.

    I couldn't handle having the buttons so high and the pad so low. I use my thumbs mostly. I have big thumbs...

    ^I agree, it looks like it'd be really uncomfortable to play.

    Maybe you shouldn't be worried about that, @Xita;

    I'd buy it if it could fit in my pocket.
