I would probably try to fold it and break it doing so.

I think it is fake but as bad as Nintendo has been over the years it is probably real.

Well they gave no shits about the design.  It looks horrendous.  Does it even fold?  Doesn't look like it.  Jesus.

The article said it was for kids under the age of 7 whose parents are afraid of buying the 3DS for because it might harm their fragile little eyes.

Haha. Awesome. Why not eh? Just doin' your own thing Nintendo. 

In all seriousness, it does look suitable for your kids or if you're on a budget. Cheap and robust looking. Enough to keep around the house and play some good games.

Wow this is weird, I would buy it if it folded like the normal models.  The exposed screen kind of kills it I think.

While I think the slate design is stupid, A cheaper 3DS without 3D isn't too bad of a move since it's not a make or break gimmick of the 3DS.

Then why not just call it the 3DS Basic or something? Why call it 2DS and confuse the ever loving f*ck out of your consumers, especially given they are already confused?

Yeah and their reasoning behind it was so Children under ages 7 and Under could play 3DS games and not worry about the 3D effect.

I mean I guess it's understandable with it coming out the same day Pokemon X and Y come out, but...........Nintendo.........man......

Why...

That is one ugly ass handheld. Holy crap is that ugly.

On second thought it looks like it's built for kids under the age of 6 who would hold it on the sides like that.

Well they've done one thing right at least.   Abandoned the idea of 3D.  Nobody wants it.

Ok, that is understandable. Even though you can turn off the 3D effect on 3DS you will still be tempted to use it because the button is there.

But they could also put parental controls on there whereby the 3D won't turn on even if you use the button. Or is that already on there ?

I imagine having the buttons there will make it a lot more comfortable actually. I don't think it's that crazy actually, the lack of clam shell design is really weird, but now I've seen the price and that it's aimed at kids it seems a bit more sensible.

Honestly, the more I think about this, the more I think this is a genius move.

A cheap, entry level, child friendly gaming device, releasing the same day as Pokemon XY - this could catch on.

They already have that feature I inputed it on my nephews 3DS but disabled it when he turned 7.

Edit* I might of misunderstood you I don't know if you where asking if they have that feature or not.

People wanted a cheap model, Nintendo dropped the 3D, and basically now they can market it to kids because a) it's super cheap, and b) it doesn't have 3D (or the stigma that comes with it)

There's an option for turning 3D off on 3DS. What the heck is the point with 2DS?
