Wow. Did they bring in a dozen or something

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.

Oos for me

Yes I am consistent with my opinion, but I reckon that might be a good thing? I add good info, and balance also re the 2DS. You'd be surprised how many people buy one thinking it is the only way they can avoid their kid 3D gaming.

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.

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!

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...

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.



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.





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.

What a tiresome little troll you are.

its oos

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