Nintendo introduces the 2DS. Seriously.
This is one of those things that sounds like a prank. The "2DS"? Haha, good one Something Awful. But in this case, it's not, it's instead another strangely baffling decision from Nintendo that could either turn out to be terrible or make them money hand over fist.
Here's the launch video:
The 2DS is a newer, cheaper, 3DS. It still has a 3D camera, but can't play 3D on its top screen. It also can't fold, and is shaped sort of like a Speak and Spell. Nintendo claims that its lower price of $129.99 makes it a cheaper option for families who can't afford the full 3DS. I'm sure that's true, but I can also see this leading to a lot of "MOOOOM! I WANTED THE 3DS!" this Christmas. Brats aside, what do you guys think? Brilliant or bust?
