Nintendo 2DS - Blue
The Nintendo 2ds is a great deal for Nintendo fans. It also has a nice new look. Its a must have for Mario and Pokemon fans.
BEST HANDHELD EVER!
Nintendo has finally resolved the Problem i had with my original DS as a kid ONE OF THE HINGES BROKE ON THE CONSOLE BECAME UNPLAYABLE! This one also has a 4GB SDHC card(my original 3DS had a 2GB card & was stolen by my cousin's ex boyfriend with my Pokemon White Version 2 cartrige inside!) i can also put the system in Sleep Mode with a flip of a switch. Nintendo knows how to make a good Handheld! i got my 2DS for Christmas! THANK YOU NINTENDO!
I bought my 2DS a few months ago, and I've been enjoying it ever since. While the design might not be as attractive as a 3DS, I find it very functional and rests in my hands well without needing to tilt my hands in any way to make the playing more comfortable. The only major downsides to the design is how bright the power light is and the location of the speaker. You can cover the light with your hand pretty easily, but I often end up covering the speaker with my thumb when I take it off the circle pad.
Beyond that, the system is great and lets you play all the DS and 3DS games. Unless you're really excited for the 3D functionality of the 3DS, the 2DS is a good value and fun to play with.
The 2DS is perfect!
No hinges means it will not break overtime from opening and closing it, which was a huge problem with the Nintendo DS product line in general. ( I have had three nintendo DS handheld systems and all of those broke because of the hinges break over time)
The biggest fail Nintendo made
Nintendo made this for people who cannot use a 3ds because their eyes cannot handle the 3d. The 2ds removed a speaker, its not portable, and they removed the 3d function. If I were you, I would HIGHLY recommend just getting a DSi. Even though it gets rid of the ability to not be able to play 3ds games, you cannot even play in 3d on the 2ds anyways.
Much more comfortable than a 3ds
I was trying out my friends 3ds and would get cramps from playing for a certain amount of time. Now I can actually play longer. I never cared for the 3d since I get motion sick easy and was able to save enough to get pokemon with it when it came out :) I did not see the point of spending so much more on the xl and plus the 2ds is a lot more durable and comfortable. It may look silly at first but after playing it for hours I could careless. I recommend this for those who do not care for the 3d or it being able to fold. It'll save you money and hand cramps.
Why I Buy
It is kind of uncomfortable gripping it but it wont break as easy as a 3ds.The 3ds is expensive and the 3d makes me have bad hedaches and motion sickness.Not with 2ds!
Best version for an adult (In my opinion)
I honestly didn't just buy this for the price, but because of the way it is designed. I am an adult male and this design fits my hands perfectly. The 3D effects looked great, but my hands would cramp up if I played the 3DS for too long. With the 2DS I am able to play for extended periods of time and enjoy the vast library of games available for the system.
A great system for them who can't get a 3DS. :)
The Nintendo 2DS is a 3DS with out 3D. It can play the same games as the 3DS just only in 2D. It can also play DS that nice. The 2DS has all of the same great apps & features as the 3DS such as the eShop, YouTube App, Nintendo Video, ect. It can even take 3D pictures even though you can't see them in 3D. I guss you can still share them with friends via Swapnotte's StreetPass. Speaking of StreetPass it's a great feature that let's u exchange gaming infomation highy scores coustomisation or message's with other gamers. It's kinda like Blue tooth in the way it works. And if u take your 3DS/2DS to a Nintendo Zone u will get streetpasses with the last 6 people who where thare. I could go on for a long time about this feature but u must exprence it your self it makes you feel connected with other users and reminds you its a small world after all. My biggest problem with the 2DS is it only has one speacker! God give us to ears for a reason. And 2 speakers help you hear where the in game sound is coming from. It also just sounds better. But u can still exprence sround sound in both ears just put in ear plugs. Over all the 2DS is a great system for little kids or any one who can afford a 3DS. I am glad it hope's up the world of Nintendo to more people. And I really do hope you all enjoy awesome 3DS/2DS games like. The Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds ;), Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D, and the upcoming Kirby game! :D God Bless happy gaming. Try to get some StreetPasses and Happy Christmas season. Miiverse for 3DS & 2DS is coming soon it maybe out by the time your reading this.
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.
