    It's cute.

    That's about it, though. Don't plan on ever buying one.

    It's aimed at children and people who want a cheaper option and don't care about 3D. It is $129 USD so people who want the "next gen" handheld have a cheaper option and it doesn't have a hinge for younger children to break or the 3D to hurt their still development eyes. I think it is a good idea but I personally do not like the design.

    I don't understand why it's flat though, I mean, what is the point of that?

    OP. It's there.

    Who wouldn't? And even if you don't want to at the time, with a 3DS you can always change your mind. 3D Depth Slider.

    The 2DS is literally just a 3DS that can play 3DS games, without the 3D. I think that defeats the point of the games. Not getting it.

    3D is an unimportant gimmick, and the 3DS ain't worse off without it in any way. As such, Ninty is offerin' a discounted 3DS which gets it's price decrease from the removed 3D stuff. I'd imagine the top screen is a big heft'a the price cut.

    The only thing bad 'bout the 2DS is the fact it doesn't bloody fold. Whoever decided on that design choice is an idiot.

    I think its stupid but its not really aimed at us. It is aimed at children ages 7 and under. It doesn't fold because that age group constantly breaks them at the hinge. I've seen it over and over. It doesn't have 3D, again, because it is aimed at young children and the 3d effect can damage their eyes. Yes, it does somewhat tap into the market of adults who don't want to buy a full priced 3DS but it is mostly for children.

    Also, I wish they would release a normal 3ds without 3d that is cheaper because I would have gotten that one since I can't really do 3D. My eyes are very out of whack and unless I get contacts, which I hate since they are more trouble than they are worth, my glasses throw the 3D effect off and it just looks like shit

    How does the 3D mess up their eyes anyway? I let my cousin borrow my 3DS to play NSMB2, and she played it with the 3D on. She's fine.

    Ironically, she's the only one in my family without glasses.

    Childrens eyes are still in a major state of development (peoples eyes are usually still developing until like age 23 or something but 0-7 is most important) and the strain of the glasses free 3D can hinder the development.

    She's one person. Don't use one person's reaction to define an entire statistic.
