Will Older 2DS Users Be Looked Down Upon?

I'm 21 years old and really considering purchasing a 2DS because I can't really afford to shell out $170 or $200 for a 3DS if I only want Animal Crossing and Pokemon X/Y and never plan on using the 3D feature. Will older gamers become the butt of jokes for purchasing one?

yes, you will be the butt of many jokes and society as a whole will look down upon you as a lowly peasant.. seriously no, anyone who looks down on you for using a video game console will do so regardless of what model it is, i have a 3ds xl, vita, smartphone etc, and i still play my gba sp or gbc often when i'm killing time. Having used a 2DS my self i can say it is a pretty sloppy console, and i can see why it is the budget version.. if you really only want it for 2 games go for it but honestly i think you'll be happier with a 3DS or 3DSXL in the long run, i will be buying a 2ds and keeping it in the box myself, this might turn out to be a gameboy micro situation if you know what i mean ;)

Yes you should feel ashamed for using a different shape plastic! Everyone point! Point and laugh! 3D Slider master race! Clamshell master race!

The 2DS is for older players so why would it be a problem?

3D is a gimmick for kids

At 21, you're not older.  You're just a kid to us old folks.  Anyway, who spends even a moment of their day wondering what electronic device some kid has in his hands in public?

Anyone who looks down on you for that is someone whose opinion about you (or anyone or anything else) holds no merit.

No, that'd be pretty silly for people to look down at you for a technology purchase.

Get whichever makes the most sense for you and enjoy the games you want.

I think you're pretty safe in that regard lol. If my original 3DS breaks down, or something like that, I'll get one too :)

whenever i see anyone on any sort of portable game thing, my only thought of them is... auh! what are they playing!?!? im not sure what ill get from knowing. its a rather assertive conviction, and i cant help it.

if they had a 2ds that folded when i bought my 3ds, i'd get it in a heartbeat.

#17 Edited by OmitName (717 posts) -

it not folding is, in a manner, its purpose for existing; at least partly. without a bend, heartless 3 yr. olds wont be able snap it in half when they rage quit: not without hulk strength anyway.

no, its purpose for existing is to offer a cheaper model. and i wonder if parents of small children will understand what it is.

Don't worry about what people think. Honestly, if It had the same size screen as the 3DS XL, I'd pick it up for that price. Thus, if you really want a 3DS though, go on eBay. Even the XL's sometime sell for $150 or less.

well my bro in law older than me 37 decide to get 2DS :)

who cares what people think. unless they are buying you a 3ds or 3dsxl they should keep their opinions and statements to themselves.

#22 Posted by ItsEvolution (2593 posts) -

I'll be getting one, and I'm 33. Couldn't care less what others think.

lol Um I don't think so.

#24 Posted by --Thomas-- (920 posts) -

I'm 24 and I considered getting a 2DS, because it's better than the regular 3DS in pretty much every aspect. Then I got a really good deal on a used 3DS, so I got one. Had I purchased a new one, I would definitely have chosen a 2DS. I don't know why anyone would look down on you because of it. Just get what you want and ignore the opinions of others.

Awesome, people are now adults at age 7

This is a given Anyone over the age of 10 playing a 2DS in Public. Will be subject to becoming the butt of jokes. The 2DS is designed for kids under 7 yrs since 3D may hurt the development of their eyes. So to avoid possible lawsuits from angry parents. Nintendo releases the 2DS as an option. While the price is $129.99 for a new 2DS it will help Nintendo make more handheld sales since kids 7 and under required parents to buy them the handheld so at $129.99 it is affordable for Parents to buy one for kids at Christmas and beyond.

So just save $40.00 more and get a proper 3DS. The 2DS is not worth it. Unless your a parent with young kids and worried about their eye health. Nintendo might have indeed did research at found out the 3D effect does damage young eyes during development. Plus for 25% of the world population cannot see the 3D effect at all. This is why 3D TV did catch on, In addition to having to wear 3D galsses to watch.

So don't buy 2DS you will be the but of jokes. I cannot see an adult using one in Public.
