When I woke up and saw that Nintendo had announced the 2DS I looked and thought, 'didn't see that coming'. My second thought was, 'that's a good idea'. Then I went into the greater internets and saw a massive backlash. People think this is a terrible idea, what do you think?
I think the 2DS is going to hit new markets. If I didn't have a 3DS (and a 3DS XL) I'd buy this. It would be my model of choice. My 3DS has essentially been a 2DS since launch. If I had the chance to pick up a cheaper, slicker, model that didn't have the 3D I would buy it in a second.
I have a friend who is a parent. She is afraid to buy her young son a 3DS because she's worried about the affect the 3D will have on his brain. That may sound silly to you, but the fact is there are parents out there who feel that way. A lot of them. And they'd rather be safe than sorry.
Anyway -- this isn't about my opinion, it's about yours! So I'll shut up now. What do you think?
