Nintendo 2DS - Blue
Want a cheap way to play 3DS games? Here you go.
It's a no brainer. If you don't have a 3DS, and you really want to play those 3DS games, but don't think that you'll
A: Use the 3D functionality on the 3DS
B: Want to spend more than $150 for a console
then look no further. Not only is this a really cheap way to get into the 3DS library, it's also a very tough, yet light handheld. It's well built, as is every other Nintendo product ever made, ever. It plays 3DS games completely fine in 2D, along with regular DS games, and it's no different than the 3DS, just without hinges and that 3D slider.
But hey, who used the 3D on their 3DS anyway?
That's right, almost nobody.
Even though I wasn't expecting to get it, I decided to stop and pick one up. Overall, it's a great handheld. The only thing I don't like about it is that it isn't pocket-friendly, anyway it makes up for that with it's awesome gameplay. 10/10!
This is better than the 3DS !!!!!!!! :-)
i told my best cousin to trade it in and she did and she said,"I am glad you told me to trade in my 3DS !!!!"
This product is amazing for those who either can't handle 3D or were never going to use the function. Also for my hands this feels amazing and I can actually play longer because the edges aren't poking into my hands.
Best New-Gen handheld
I bought this to play The Legend of Zelda games, 2DS is perfect, less headaches compared to he 3DS..
excellent system for smart people
i first opened the box and it was helpful for my child but....... it douse not fit in my hands i recommend this for small children.
For those holding out for a 3ds
Ill be honest i was waiting for a 3ds price drop for the longest time and was actually going to go ahead and spend the $200+ for one. I just wanted to be able to play the great 3ds games out there and thats all but didnt really want to spend alot so when the 2ds came out I decided to look for review but couldnt find any great ones so I went ahead and bought one for myself. First off dont let your eyes fool you, its feels great in your hands. It may feel awkward at first especially if your used to the old form with the hinge but after long periods of time it didnt bother me at all. Second it is exactly what they say it is, a 3ds without 3d so if you dont need that and just want to play games then your set. The screen is great and the battery life it great. It does feel a bit cheap from being made from all plastic but it gives it a kinda old school Gameboy advance/ Gameboy color feel which i like. My only gripe is that the screen size it the same as the regular 3ds and not the xl. If you just want a cheap alternative to just play games then I highly recommend the 2ds!
I like it!
It's pretty good and cheaper than 3DS and XL. The only bad thing is it's too big when I go out and carry around.
Its a good system. It feels more secure in your hands than the 3ds and there is not a wobbly screen.
Ignore the negative comments if they put you off!
I've seen some pretty negative and uneducated comments like "lol this is so stupid whats the point of this the games are supposed to be for 3d". Not necessarily true considering the fact the majority of 3DS owners don't even use the 3D functionality. 3D just lowers the battery life. With a lot of customers who don't need the 3D (those who are disabled, too young for 3D, or, like my sister, can't see 3D), this is a great product. It's a great idea since its very inexpenive for a new handheld and has a great selection of games. Business wise it was a great move because what they don't sell of the 3DS and the XL will be made up for with this. It is a great product for those who want a cheap, but good product for a game on trips or waits. The only negatives are the ugly shell and the unprotected screens, but those can be okay with a case!
