Does this differ much from Star Fox Zero on the Wii U?


It is the n64 Lylat Wars. Which is the pinnacle of on rails shooters.

Not sure why cold, it's still £8 less than anywhere else and Argos deal seams to be off, heated.

Due to the lack of heat I'm guessing it is cheaper somewhere else?
Can someone let me know where as I was considering getting one?
Elsewhere £129.99

Why would you pay £130 for the 2DL XL when you can get a 3DS XL for same price on Ebay straight away?
because the 3ds xl is too heavy and the 3ds kills my battery and eyes

DAMN. code expired. really wanted to get one for my son for his birthday
For those considering a 2/3DS for adult use, I'd highly recommend this 2DS. I've held the clamshell versions and this is far more comfortable for any length of time, and is surprisingly well built for the price.

Finished OoT on it recently and thoroughly enjoyed the experience (both the game, which is much improved from the original, and the console itself).

Damn I decided to hold out for the 2ds xl, but with code and staff discount the 3ds xl is only £134; whattttt to do?? Hotukdeals making me question whether I do actually need the 3d i never used to use on my old 3ds
It's a lot better on the New 3DS / XL in fairness - the head tracking makes it a significantly easier function to live with for sure. I was in the same boat as you, but managed to buy a New 3DS XL from another forum boxed new for £125, and am glad I did - it's decent and the back catalogue is ample enough to keep me going until Switch bundles are more to my liking.

well new 2ds xl is cheaper and more slimline but if you can't wait then go for it
*this comment links the 2ds xl tesco preorders and says they are £123 with code so if staff discount is 10% that makes it £110.7

Damn even at a £130 RRP Nintendo have shocked me a little. Fully expected it to be a direct $150/£150.
Why would you expect a 7-yr old technology with low resolution, TN non-capacitive touchscreen cost £150?
Games. It's all about the games.

Which is great if you're a 13yr old girl, or have one in the house, but milking this cow is getting really out of control and consumers should not encourage this kind of practice.
...just bought a 2DS Mario Kart edition, typical!! Does this have bluetooth?

Why would you expect a 7-yr old technology with low resolution, TN non-capacitive touchscreen cost £150? Last time I've had a resistive screen with stylus it was on my Palm device 15 years ago.
If anything, it should be around half of the RRP by now, most £50 Chinese smartphones have better spec and screen.
I take the point about the costs and the price but resistive screens aren't automatically inferior to capacitive screens. They serve different needs. For the stylus-based gameplay on the DS where precision is required on some games, resistive screens are better. Arguably, this would be the last generation where Nintendo steers towards requiring such precision in games - purely because game design has already shifted away from it.

TLDR.

This is every bit a last attempt to milk us for more money by releasing a product line inbetween the 2DS and the 3DS XL.

Good price!! Just bear I mind that some games in 2D just aren't as good to play like Mario 3D Land. Loosing the depth of field can make jumping across gaps a nightmare.
I don't even use the 3d function on my o3ds it was still fine to play for me.


Agreed it's still playable but you can tell Mario 3D World was built to take advantage of the 3D effects. Playing in 2D just doesn't seem as good IMO.
So... Um... 2DXL, thoughts?

spasho, noahsdad et al inc me drifted off/got banned/lost the will. Its not the same as it used to be round here imo. too much hate at times then it runs cold for months on end.

I wish they would both come back, I enjoyed both their contributions. Spasho posted great deals and knew his stuff when it came to gaming. Noahsdad was always entertaining with his nations favourite comments X) You need a character now and again a little bit out of the ordinary!

I sold mine to get a 2nd hand (new style)3DS and not looked back. The 2DS is cool but inferior in many ways. The 3DS has so many improvements even if played in 2D. It has better quality screens and brightness levels. It has stereo speakers, can play Snes games, clam shell to protect it, 2nd analogue stick, faster processor too.
I sold a like new 2ds with alot of good games for less on eBay. This is a bad deal, DS is dead in the water. Buy this and expect to loose half your purchase price immediately. On resale. So very dated.
penguinman93
Anyone know if the pre-installed copy of Mario kart gets registered to your Nintendo ID so I can play on my 3ds also? Or will I have to copy the game over to the other DS? I've been meaning to get Mario Kart, why not get a 2DS while I'm at it!

Neither, digital games are tied to the console itself.
Andyr330
Anyone know what software version is on these ?? :-D

Not 11.4 ;D
Mine was 11.1 from this (Mario Kart) pack.
Get this (or different 2DS bundle) for my sister which she can play with her friends online or locally, or an extra pair of Joycon controllers for her Switch (which will allow her to do local co-op with her friends and the rest of the family)?

Well, that's no good. Does it look like the one in the picture? Or is the lettering/tag obviously not right?

It does look like the original would, as the picture does.

But i just suspect with it having no outer packaging or even a little cardboard tag on it that its a copy. I could be wrong, it just might be hassle free packaging.

It does not come in offiicial packaging as the original here does https://www.tesco.com/direct/carrying-case-red-2ds/331-0931.prd?skuId=331-0931&pageLevel=sku&sc_cmp=ppc_sh-_-sh-_-tesco-_-331-0931&gclid=CO6An6as0tICFfUV0wod2mwIEw&gclsrc=aw.ds&source=others

BTW thats only £5, i'd just go for that really.


I did see that one. Can't easily get to a Tesco and the £3 delivery bumped it up quite a bit. Thanks for the advice though, hopefully anyone interested in this will check the one out if it's better suited. Cheers :D

Good deal, and a good time to pick one up, I got one last month, and have had a decent hobby looking for really cheap games for it on eBay and Cash convertors, etc.

It's a very nice machine, and battery supposedly lasts longer than the 3ds models.
Does trial prime work for this?. Looking for a 3DS XL so will be spending over £60...
Any idea of the list of cities which this applies to? (Awesome deal btw) :)

Is this the PAL UK green triangle version or the purple multi-language cover anyone? Argos have that version exclusively
Got mine from Argos to make sure. One purple or yellow triangle and it looks a mess on the shelf!
you have a shelf!
Yeah I like to collect, sadly I don't get to play 3ds as much as I'd like to. Currently playing Dragon quest 7 on it and is taking me ages. I love the system though, one of the best libraries around.
yeah there are some choice titles. I'm only managing to wade through them now as i'm laid up. My games are stacked up on a coffee table atm just to let everybody know.

Lol I hear you. My backlog is a joke and I got the switch coming Friday...

The actual 'classic' games selection isnt too clever. And although you could resell if you went physical, I dont see this as an investment title. js. you might as well hand pick a few games in this weekends eshop sale.

I know we've not had one in a week but even i'm getting bored of 2ds rrp deals now.
Not bad but not yet...
As the Switch is canibalising the DS and the Wii U, I'm hoping to see all current-gen Nintendo consoles take a sharp drop like the Smyths deal the other day (_;)

Heat from me. Mario Kart 7 on its own is £35.
where are you shopping? you can get it cheaper than launch rrp.
OK I can see Smyths has it for £32. How much cheaper can you get it new?
Yeah thats where I saw it. Digital on ebay it was £15 last time I checked but the seller who always has stock hasnt anything listed atm. it was £20 on tesco direct a few weeks ago but thats over with now. You can get the eu version from amazon france for £27 no import added but postage maybe? sometimes items ordered from frenchie/german amazon get shipped from the uk just because but im not sure you could get away without paying the p+p.

Im gonna have a search as after shooting off it should be cheaper, it must be somewhere.

Release the 2nd wave of 3ds selects titles already Nintendo!
£1 cheaper (£74.99) from GAME for red and white 2DS with either Mario or Tomadochi.

£79.99 with a free case from the official Nintendo store, which is only £1 more than this Tesco deal.

Will this run on a 2DS? All I hear is great things about them.
Yes 100%. If you look in the bottom right corner of the box art there's your confirmation.
You will need to buy a NFC reader though for a 2DS (if don't already have one) for the Amiibo Cards to be of any use.
Spidersmudge
All those cards look amazing. I'm really looking forward to the online capability of these sports. Horse Racing looks insanely fun! :)
Bonus of being able to play family members. Hopefully they made tennis more playable than their recent tennis efforts. The whole package looks amazing and typical Nintendo!
The cards do look amazing and Nintendo did this brilliant with Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer which is a brilliant game which kids get totally immersed into. However as I found out with that game it gets a bit annoying buying packs of random cards, getting duplicates, and the cost soon starts to stack up.
For those reasons only I am skipping this game. Buying random packs, blind bags for figures etc is one of my pet hates. I know is not just Nintendo, even Lego do it too, just hate it though.
EDIT: PS the many volumes (5 ?) of Animal Crossing cards also each had an optional Collectors Album book released, RRP £11 I think it was. I am prepared to bet my house on there also being Collectors Album books being released shortly for Mario Sports Superstars :)
I have a 3DSXL. And yes I agree. I'll get one pack to be left with one for each sport and leave it at that I think :)

My kid has been playing a 3DS XL since he was 6, never complained about sore hands, or had bother with it. I am nearing 40 and have coped also as has my wife. I have seen other family members play 3DS without such issues to. The new Switch console will weight a bit more (not much) than a 3DS XL for the record. We rarely have our 3DS XL screens angled so that the console is stretched out and flat. Our screen angle varies from game to game to suit. The screen angle goes a long way to the overall comfort level when playing, dependant on game. Not being able to adapt the screen angle and being stuck in such a rigid viewpoint for any individual game has to reduce comfort levels.

Even my old handheld Nintendo games from 35 years ago supported optional screen angles to aid comfort. That just shows how old tech the 2DS unit is.

However as i spend more time on hukd slating the 2ds than tending to my wife's delicate needs she has now left me for a real man. my kids don't want contact either. Atleast ive got my trusty 3ds!

ah the usual to and fro of a 2ds posting. The 3d feature is no gimmick, it works on the new models really well. Even the mighty moi doesnt utilise it all the time but some games shine brighter with the feature on.

off the top of my head Pilotwings (which a lot of latecomers to the 3ds might not grab as It was an early release title) is better with the 3d on and is pretty fun for under a tenner (used) Mario 3d land I also thought benefited from the 3d being turned on.

For the record I did reply to comment #34, and have been out for the last 7hrs, but highly frustratingly it seems a few posts have been removed, and I can guess why, as the form book shows the insults start to fly sooner and later from a particular 2DS user, when one dares to highlight some of the many numerous issues with the 2DS. Apparently it is better to just not give people looking at deal threads balanced information to help with a purchase decision. Any hoo am glad to be out of this silly thread now.

FYI I haven't reported any of your comments nor did I insult you in any of the (now deleted) comments. I suggest you grow a back bone.

The fact that you view your obsession with slating the 2DS as "balanced information" is hilarious.

The 2DS doesn't really have any issues.

It's cheap because:

1) No 3D. Your argument is you can disable it from the 3D models in settings. But why pay more just to do this?

2) Single screen and no hinge. The shell covers the screen and splits it in two but underneath there are not two screens.

That's about it. In fact it comes with a charger which the New 3DS models do not and a 4GB SD card when the original 3DS & 3DS XL come with a 2GB.

The buttons feel just as crisp as any of the other models. In fact they feel a lot better than the original models.

If you don't require the 3D, and want something to grip easily or don't fancy your young child with a hinged clam shell then it is a great option especially as it is available for a budget price. It's over 50% less than the new 3DS and even more than that when comparing to the new 3DS XL. You are talking about such a difference in cost you could get two of these for the price of one new 3DS. I expect many parents have chose this option.

It absolutely blows the original 3DS out the water in terms of battery life and ergonomics. That original model was awful to hold and the 3D was so bad.

Yes, the New 3DS model offers more features but I wouldn't say it's worth the price difference.

Care to elaborate on its flaws? Or are you going to retreat (again) once someone dare to challenge your bias.

Personally i think its a great deal, your getting a brand new 2DS for the price second hand ones are going for on Ebay.
Yes its not the newest model, however to be honest I do really like the 2DS, the 3D is awful in my opinion and not been able to play Snes VC games is no great loss at all. If you think the 3D truly adds something to the games then this is not for you, but from the the people i know who actually own a 3DS, no one uses the 3D on it.
That's my point of view anyway as someone who only purchased a 3DS to play Pokemon on Mario Kart. The new Pokemon Sun / Moon games don't even support 3D anyway.
The 3d on the new models is a big step up from the old ones. It works really well but yeah they should have gotten it right from the start.
The 3D is low down on the list of many reasons to opt for a 3DS or 3DS XL. It is about so many other aspects. A more comfortable playing experience, due to the better control layouts and ability to tilt the screens to the most suitable angles.
Superior screen display with a 3DS XL (try going back to a small screen once your used to it).
Improved battery chemistry, you get a better battery with the newer units.
The latest "new" units have built in NFC (Amiibo) reading capability. A few games only work on the latest tech too, and there may be many more to follow this pattern.
Then there is the whole design aspect of it being less clumsy, more solid, less breakable.
Above all else is the best value for money, and best investment going forward, will have some resale value if you opt for a later tech unit.
nd, the 3d is kinda important to the 3ds. (otherwise we'd just have the 2ds and I know you wouldnt want that!) it was the logical next step in the evolution of the ds/dsi etc. We are talking about the improvment in the new models which is a long way from the og 3ds or the 3dsxl in that it works a lot, lot better.
Control layout and screen tilt have been pretty standard through 3ds - new3ds bar some minor improvements and im pretty sure ive never heard anyone on here go gaga and make a purchase because of the degree of screen angle! (possible though)
Built in amiibo supprt is handy of your into it. The few new3ds only games available wont be added to dramatically there might be one or two. I wouldnt be surprised if its zero tbh. So many 2ds/3dsxl units have been sold last year a slew of new only games would alienate those users to a small degree. It starting to look like putting out snes vc games will be nintendos form of appeasement for new3ds owners expecting more new only titles.
I'd say the new units are every bit as breakable as the xl and the og 3ds. But then it depends how you treat them. Each unit has its niggles be it screen touching or hinge issues its always been that way.
Gaming tech or gaming in general should never be an investment imho. Yes, sometimes you get lucky and spur of the moment flippers will disagree but there is no guarantee with anything. Metroid trilogy on the wii for instance used to garner good money 2nd hand. Then when it was available cheap digitally, physical prices bombed. Thousands more examples like this I expect. Nintendo bits do usually hold their value better, but no one is retiring to the bahamas on them.
I still heart you bro.

Fair enough with the 3D, maybe I have minimised it due to personal tastes as I don't care for the 3D much myself. I have no issues with the implementation of the 3D and it does look very nice, just I prefer to play without it.

I have always questioned the "hinge issues" on here. I believe hinge issues to be a bit of a myth. At best probably rare and mostly surely about bad care if does occur. Often on here in the past the 2DS lovers cite hinge issues on the better models of 3DS playing units, and that's just more nonsense about trying to find good reasons to have bought a 2DS. I am not aware of anyone in real life who has hinge bother in the slightest with DS/3DS/XL in real life. Just the odd person on here.

He is right about the screens though, we have one with a broken screen and my children are very careful with their gadgets.

Well my kids are not that careful but we still have zero broken screens.

I find the 2ds much more comfortable. The original 3ds, XL and 'new' 3ds XL have all given me cramp.
its oos

Had to vote cold, sorry.
1. Tiny screen.
2. Smaller battery.
3. Poor and uncomfortable game controls.
4. No 3D (Some seem to consider it a plus point) but that is pointless, as is an 'option' with parental controls on other units anyway.
5. Lack of flexibility to angle screens appropriately, ruins a lot of 3DS games.
6. Does not close, leaving screens exposed.
7. General poor overall design and overly unnecessary large size.
8. Old tech.
9. Very low future resale value.
10. Relatively expensive for what it is.

What a tiresome little troll you are.

What are you comparing this to? The "new" 3DS and 3DS XL? If anything it should be compared to the original 3DS and holds up well compared to that. I own the original 3DS, 3DS XL and the 2DS - don't have the "new" models as they don't offer a good enough reason for me to personally upgrade.
A lot of what you've stated is just your opinion and everyone will feel different about which version they'd prefer. Out of my 3DS/2DS consoles I use the XL the most with the 2DS only slightly less as I like the bigger screens. I use the 3DS the least as it's the least comfortable for me. My favourite form factor is the 2DS as for me it's the most comfortable to hold.
Now as I said you should compare the 2DS with the original 3DS and this is my take on the points you have listed:
1.Screen size is exactly the same as the original 3DS
2.Almost exactly same battery life as the original 3DS. Maybe a little better if anything.
3.Comfortable to hold and I get less cramp using this form factor whilst gaming.
4.Agreed that there's no 3D but you know how many times I've used the 3D function? For all of probably 5 minutes since I've had these consoles as it's not for me. Strains my eyes so I don't count this as a negative.
5.Flexibility to angle the screens? When using the clamshell models I generally always have them open at the same angle all the time. I can see it affecting gaming if using the 3D function but like I said I never use that. I look head on at the console so I don't see how this is a negative for the 2DS.
6.Yes it's not a clamshell so it doesn't close. This affects portability but arguably makes it more durable as there's no hinges to wear out. I also have screen protectors on all my models so the screens are adequately protected from scratches.
7.Again that's your opinion. In my opinion I like the form factor and the only negative for me as I've mentioned is the portability.
8.I can agree with you about this as the 3DS came out in 2011.
9.That's subjective. I've seen limited edition consoles go for crazy money on occassions. Yes the standard 2DS might not offer much of a resale value but I rarely sell my consoles so again this doesn't affect me.
10.I agree that the price point is probably more than it should be but this deal is for the Pokemon editions of the console and if people are willing to pay that for the colour scheme and the game etc. then that's up to them. The standard 2DS has been on sale for less in the past.
I didn't set out to write an essay on this but I've seen your negative comments about the 2DS on a couple of other threads and just felt like offering my take on the console.

No point me going into any detail mate, have put endless info out on 2DS on my part and our opinions are clearly so far apart. However fair enough you have a different opinion and you convey it well. No prob with that here.

Thank god that some one could be ar5ed and brave enough to argue with Noah's dad. Am getting sick of his bashing comments every time there is a deal on 2ds on here. You sir deserve a pat on the back!

Sorry but there is a lot if misunderstanding and what the 2DS actually is and what it does do and doesn't do out there. And as you know I really don't rate it very highly at all, as do many others. If sharing genuine product information is "bashing" then so be it.

Of course most more expensive product ranges are better. Imagine if for every Samsung mobile phone post, someone posted why the Galaxy S7 is better. Or why the PS4 is better on every PS3 listing...

Maybe you have another example, but that one surely does not work. A 2DS is a different form of console to a 3DS or 3DS XL console, yet it is specifically designed for playing the exact same "3DS" games and serving the exact same purpose, but in a more limited, reduced options, and less of a gaming experience type of way.

heat for a very good console.
What's good about it? It is frankly quite dreadful. How it is even still in production is a Bermuda Triangle puzzle and mystery to most.
The 2DS is great, it is the cheapest way to play 3DS games and it is shaped like a cheese :D

OMG are we still posting dire 2DS deals for this inferior tech. Suggest anyone considering buying this, does the due diligence and researches the limitations and downsides of having a 2DS. The only possible advantage to having a 2DS is lower price, but hey it is ancient and inferior tech, how could it be anything other than cheaper. Do your research folks!

man its a 2DS. Sorry Splasho this has to be cold. Ancient tech, inferior unit. Wouldn't pay £20 for it, horrific way to play any 3DS game. £30-£40 is probably the right RRP for such an abysmal unit, that should not even be for sale. If your on a budget I suggest people look into a second hand 3DS or 3DS XL as a better alternative.


Same old response to any 2DS deal that gets posted.

Well, what you're looking for is a flashcart. There are various to choose from.

I can't recommend which one is the best around as I don't know. I do intend on getting a flashcart myself so I can keep the games all sealed. :)

Do you have an alert set up for 2DS deals ready to criticise, or do you just spot them whilst browsing?

No I just come across it while searching for Nintendo/Mario etc deals and feel inclined to post. Nothing wrong with adding some much needed reality and balance is there?

What a downer ! What about the kids who missing out on the Nintendo Magic, just because, they are to young, for 3D experience ?

That is not an issue. The parents control the 3D settings on any 3DSenabled unit. You set the account password, and choose if 3D is enabled or not. One can only wonder how many of these dreadful units Nintendo shift because of confusion and misunderstanding. We know they only shift so many because it is 'cheaper' but the truth of it is, its an inferior unit for anyone of any age.

why is it so bad? just because it doesn't have the stereoscopic 3d gimmick?
Not so much about the 3D effect but that it can be a bit uncomfortable holding it, though that's subjective to everyone's preference. The quality of the screen isn't of Nintendo's high calibre but this is a low budget 3DS so that's the reason.
