What was Nintendo thinking????

I don't see the issue with either. The 2DS is designed with little kids in mind (3D unsuitable for them, hinges on clamshell design likely to be messed up by them, even lower price than 3DS), and releases on the same day as Pokemon X/Y. And a price drop will help Wii U sell.

I'm not a gamer, I'm a Nintendrone. Here's proof I live to serve Nintendo:

2DS - Nintendo is completely giving up on the Wii U as you can see, by making every combination of ass-backwards 3 (and not 3) DS

Price Cut - The basic will be discontinued soon, and they have nothing to compete with the PS4. They are STILL making profit on this system, don't let them lie to you.

Just woke up and got online. I learned they are selling the 2DS (wow, no words need to be said) and the price cut for Wii U isn't really a price cut at all (entry level system will still cost $300)

This is insane.


I think the real question is... Why are you just waking up?? where are you! It's pas 1 PM where I am.. Can't be sleeping that much. There are plenty of things to do. You can get a hobby or a job, or do something productive. Sleeping this late is not good.


Lol.

I want a 4DS so I can play in the 4th dimension and finally figure out what that is.

Seriously though, they're not giving up on the Wii U so much as just filling a niche they think they can with what their current blockbuster is. I'd be surprised if the 2DS production really cost them much of anything and it's price, targeted demographic, and release date is pretty much spot on. Goofy as the thing looks to me, and coming out of left field, even if it doesn't sell much it'll make them a bit of profit so it's a good move. Kinda crazy, but not a bad thing.

I wonder what the chances are that the 2DS turns out to be mostly a $170 Pokemon machine. >.>

I'm glad someone else gets.

24 extra GB does NOT justify an extra 50 dollars and no basic model avaiable/price cut.


The Deluxe came with a $60 game on disc, a stand, a charging dock, a free 2 year money back promotion, and extra memory.
