People are giving this Nintendo 2DS deal a hard time and it’s bonkers.
Other than the shape, I don’t get why everyone thinks this is a joke. I seriously have been hoping they’d make a cheaper 3DS without the 3D but questioned if they ever would because of the name. I’m actually pretty proud of Nintendo for accepting that the one feature they were really pushing with this product isn’t exactly what everyone wants.
I use 3D almost zero percent of the time. I find it pointless and a pain in the ass for casually playing to keep it at just the right angle and distance. I’ve heard the same from a lot of my friends.
But what I/we think really doesn’t matter. Obviously this is more geared toward children and I imagine that explains the shape. Which is brilliant. The clamshell format is more likely to snap. It would also make sense given children’s eyes are more likely to be damaged by by the 3D. If I had a kid, I’d get this one over the others in a heartbeat.
Way to go Nintendo, you done a good thing.
