Why don't you have a 2DS yet, anon?
>Cheaper than the OG 3DS and XL
>Comfortable and ergonomic
>Best L/R buttons ever
>Did I mention that it's cheap?
Goddamn son, what are you doing, why don't you have one yet?
>doesnt have 3d
>everyone and their mom is doing 3d now because it's the future
i bet you only have 1 working eye too
Already have a 3DS XL for me, and I gave my wife my old 3DS.
Tried it at a Best Buy and thought it felt like shit. I don't mind the concept of the 2DS, but I absolutely hate the cheap design and layout (At least allow it to close like the DS or 3DS).
>tucked away in my drawer
>worst face buttons and dpad of the bunch
>didn't feel comfortable
might've been just a matter of getting used to though
>made specifically so kids don't break the damn thing
I'll give you he LR though,
>not a postman bag
Do you even college?
but the 3D can be fucking awesome on the XL
I wanted one of these but I simply can't find it anywhere, was it some sort of special edition?
>No hinges so both screens remain completely unprotected
>Too large to be truly portable
>Literally the most retarded looking handheld ever designed
You're right, OP, I wonder why it's so unpopular?
yeah, but sometimes when I'm kicking back and my headphones are ALL the way over there... I'll just use the speakers. Btw do we know why the XL speakers are so bad compared to the OG 3DS?
I just bought one today with Pokemon Y for £99.99 new.
Still charging it, but it feels really comfy to hold, much more so than the XL at least.
Maybe if I had girly hands like that guy. But unfortunately I have big fat hands.
Yeah I saw some super fat autist black guy playing one at the mall the other day
was pretty funny looking, glad that i went shopping
with my mom
>why i don't have 2ds?
because i already have a 3ds, nigger, unless it breaks, there is not point of buying the same console again, is a waste of money, yet there are niggers who buy the same console over and oer for some fucking reason.
>IT DOESN'T FOLD.
Because the Vita already did
Because I was able to get an XL for less than $100
Though 3D is fucking annoying whenever it's forced in SMT
>actually trying to justify an inferior cheaper version aimed at children
As some have said, would have been great if it had some special edition ones. Even if it is aimed at kids that most likely could give a shit about them.
I can give you the screens as a valid point, but then again, the XL's are just stretched, with no real increase in resolution, so it's all a matter of taste in the end.
Everything else falls flat, since the 2DS is considerably more comfortable.
Good luck playing Smash Bros on the XL.
Well then, it's a good thing it's good at taking up space, because that's all it does.
>it's one screen with plastic over the middle meaning they could have done something far more interesting with it
>mono audio. in 2014.
>doesn't fold up for transport
>looks like bread
My local second hand shops are selling them for £75, but I still can't justify buying one with that price. Here's why
>region locking in 2014 - this is complete cancer. I refuse to support a system that actively restricts the consumer
>only game I'm honestly interested in is Rune Factory 4 - almost everything else I played on the DS, which was a huge letdown for me
>can't even get that because lolregionlock
>lack of consumer software value - despite being an idort both PS+/sales and steam sales have spoiled me to the point where I see no point in purchasing a Nintendo system when I know I won't get value for my money in software
>severely outdated hardware - it's using PSP quality hardware and it's 240p. Supporting such a device is holding handheld gaming back a generation
>multitasking and online capabilities - the vita has spoiled me with some really awesome shit like minimising a game, checking out my friends list or messages, and resuming the game instantly with no lag. And with networking capabilities it feels like a PS3 in my pocket. I can't go to the 2DS after having stuff like that
>lack of fresh first party experiences - I value strong, first party new IPs. Even the fucking Vita has more than the 2DS/3DS
>for what you're losing, the price reduction between the 3DS and 2DS isn't enough. Nintendo simply went full Jew and made something for as cheap as possible to pull a profit from the consumer as fast as possible
i got one for my four-year-old daughter.
she's fucking loving the new kirby game.
I already have a 3ds, so it's not cheaper for me to buy a system I already own.
Also, I gave most of the 3ds games to her
the vita's better and comes with free ps plus games.
Why would I fill my pockets with a no gaems garbage like that?
baby hands detected
Anon, why are you telling lies? Or you might just need to
Nigger, I would buy an XL if my regular 3DS ever broke. I doubt it will, it's been 3 years and it is still in great condition.
Couldn't get used to the claw in the 3ds, nor the on screen d-pad, and the lock on thingy is just dumb when you are used to hunting.
Plus before getting a 3ds I started playing FU on the vita, and the second analog was way better, just felt bad trying to go back to claw even worse as the 3ds claw is just retard
>nor the on screen d-pad
Being a resistive screen didn't help it, sometimes you want to make a fast turn and the screen just wont register the input unless you actually put a little pressure
i might get one later if my 3ds XL breaks. I'm not retarded with my consoles so my screens won't get damaged. I used the 3d once or twice to see how it looks and decided it was shit and too relient on staying at one angle, shit gimmick won't be missed.
I use headphones anyway because every models audio sucks dick.
Its a great option, its just people that jumped on the bandwagon never got off. There is no reason that this isn't good as a budget option. It does its job at a low price. I lose nothing of value by purchasing it over the others.
Thats not the reason
its because the bottoms screen is farther away from the circle pad by alot
This is important because the touch screen is used for camera controls.
