Cool. If it prices well I might consider it.

The 2DS looks more awkward than the Wii U gamepad....

Definitely something I won't consider buying, I'd prefer to get the 3DS which doesn't look as odd.

You can turn off the 3D in the 3DS can't you?

So what in the blue blazes hell is the purpose of the 2DS?

$70 in difference, targeted toward the people who don't care about the 3D gimmick at all, I guess.

Wait wtf. Why are the 2DS' buttons so awkwardly placed?

You basically have to hold the 2DS in the middle or the upper middle. To me, that is a little weird for a handheld that has more vertical.

Imagine if your DS was a solid piece, and in order to play games, you had to hold it near the upper screen. Then throw in a control stick above the d-pad, making the d-pad lower than the other main buttons, along with start and select. Not awkward yet? Make the bottom screen a touch screen where about 99% amount of games use that as the touch screen, main screen, and/or inventory screen so you have to look at it.


So pretty much you have your hands by the upper screen, one hand lower than the other in some games, with the touch screen being used makes a one-handed approach hard, and you are looking at the top screen most of the time because that's where your hands are but you have to look down (or vice-versa, you are looking at the touch screen but keep on having to look up). Looks like the most awkward handheld ever to me.
