Hi, quick question - will the 2DS play all virtual console games that the 3DS can? i.e. SNES and NES? Any deals going on a 2DS at the mo? Thank you. Read More

The 2DS will *not* play SNES games - you need a New 3DS (XL) for that.

Aside from that, it should play all other 3DS VC games.

Yes


Really? I'm sure I read that the 2DS doesn't?

You read correctly, I'm afraid.

Ok, so only SNES games won't play? What VC games will play on a 2DS?

Everything else that's available on the 3DS VC should work. See here for what's available (use the filters to show only VC games): link

No - have you used the filters to show only 3DS VC games?

Also looking for a cheap 2ds....son just managed to crack the screen on his and doesn't look like an easy/cheap repair unless anyone has any thoughts...??
#10
I can only see the 2DS for £79.99 at Argos
#11
Yes, bought son his new for £40 at asda after seeing a deal on here nearly a year ago.... has quite a few games now and he loves it. Will have to buy another soon but disappointed with the current deals...
#12
Like I said, £79.99 is the best I can find. Shame really.

There are a few pre-order bundles around that work out somewhat better value if you want the bundled game. That, or a pre-owned/refurbished model could also be a little cheaper (e.g., see Amazon sellers).

That's still bringing up SNES games though?

Not for me. Are you sure that you're looking at the 3DS VC, not the Wii or Wii U VC? In any case, if you're seeing any SNES games listed, these won't work on a 2DS or 'old' 3DS.

I can take a look at a screenshot if you're concerned?

I can narrow down the VC to 3ds but the snes games are listed.

Okay. It may be because the filter doesn't distinguish between the 'old' 3DS and New 3DS, but I can't say anything more, at least not without a screenshot. Either way, you can't play these on an 'old' £dS or a "DS.
