Thinking about getting first Nintendo system - 2DS?

Held it @ a shop today and it feels very comfortable - much more so than the original 3DS and the XL.

(1) Does the 2DS play FUTURE 3DS games - unreleased 3DS games?

(2) Does the 2DS play DS games?

(3) Can one access eShop via the 2DS and does the 2DS have WiFi?

1,2,3 Yes.
#3BonezWellPosted 7/5/2014 5:34:44 AM
Yes to all 4 of your questions.

Why do you think it wouldn't?

2 more questions

(1) Is the screen the same size as the original 3DS's screens? Like, is the screen inferior (less pixels, less quality LCD?)

(2) Is there still surround sound in the options?

The 2DS was built for kids in mind. More durability, a more comfortable fit (this is for anyone really), and was made as a 3DS, but without 3D. It does everything a 3DS/XL does, but without the 3D. It is the same exact system. So all the same rules apply. How do you know a 3DS will be able to play future 3DS games?

She was walking on a stage after the play was over. Who now could say it had ever happened.

Same screen. Surround sound is in the options but only available through headphones because the system has only one speaker.

Thank you soooooooo much. I use headphones anyway so this is great! A good system at a fantastic price with better ergonomics!

Do you actually have a 2DS and confirm that you can select between Mono, Stereo, and Surround in the options menu?

Once I plug headphone in, the sound will be the same quality whether it is from 3DS, XL or 2DS right?
