Bigger shock: Wii U price drop or 2ds?

#11TalentedMPosted 8/28/2013 8:17:15 PM
2DS was shocking and interesting to me. I don't own a 3Ds myself and this might drive me to purchase it. I kinda like it.... Maybe it just seems so homely to me, like I can walk around my house and play games on it and then just put it down on a charger... Like my Wii U. It is apparently geared towards kids, but it looks way more comfy than the 3DS and I don't walk around with handhelds as an adult male when I am out and about... So it makes sense to me. It is also cheaper.

Price drop was a little more shocking. I don't feel like the library is extensive enough to entice buyers no matter the price, so it feels a bit out of place right now.

The $50 difference wont drive people away from the PS4/X1 if that was the goal, especially without heavy hitters like MK8 out, which I think will drive the system into homes a lot more than a $50 difference will.

But hey, I am just a pencil pusher who reads about videogames and comes to this place in his spare time. Who am I to judge? lol.

I don't see how the 2ds was a surprise to anyone it was rumored back i think like last year.

"Nintendo is currently preparing a new 3DS for a 2012 release. This new version would radically tone down the whole “3D“ angle, with a new design and even probably a different name."

I remember that but come on, a 2DS? All parents have to do is set the 3DS to not display in 3D and viola! Instant 2DS without some crazy rebranding and model changes. Or for you other people with no kids.....*Slides the 3D slider all the way down and never touches it again* Ooh.

So yes, the 2DS was more a shock to me than the price drop, even though I was on here recently talking about shareholders...Iwata....and March 2014 ( thanks a lot Nintendo).

2DS. Essentially the 3DS's GB Micro equivalent.

"2DS. That was a major wtf moment.

I then Googled it, saw a picture, and went wtf again."

Best comment thus far!

2ds was never rumored. Please with that silly comment.

One thing I do wonder though: was the 2ds created because of the huge royalties Nintendo needs to give to the man who won the recent 3ds lawsuit?

2ds. Price drops always happen. The 2ds is just such an odd decision but the more I think about it the more it makes sense


...except for the design. That doesn't make sense at all.
