You can't carry the 2DS in your pocket? Honestly, I have never met anyone who carries a expensive handheld system in their tiny pockets, aside from kids between 9 and 12 and below, which the 2DS is made for.
No 3DS effect? Wow, how did you figure that one out?
You can't fold it? That was the whole point, 2DS is supposed to be sturdy for young audience, not to be breakable which has happened a lot.

It's a solid system for the younger audience for obvious reasons, the older audience already got the 3DS and the XL, so why bother with the younger audience? Sure, discussions are fine but some people here act like the 2DS is made for everyone, which is not.

It might be directed more on younger audience but it's still for everyone because some older fans do not own 3DS or XL so the possibility of reduced price might attract them

Best DS console I've ever owned, koffi~

I love the 2DS. It's sturdier than my friends 3DS and 3DSXLs. Doesn't bend, and it's a nice chunk of sexy violence. Harks back to the non-closing systems.

1. I can fit it in my back pocket
2. the buttons don't come with that annoying clicky-clacky
3. nice and sleek color design
4. comfortable grip. I have not had hand cramps yet.
5. 3D? Pssh. Who cares?

Great system for those big people out there, koff~

Wait... You mean I could use it as a murder weapon?

What about the screens scratching?

But the thing is, it's not a 'DS Console'.

2DS or DS, the number of DSs is the only difference =)

That's like saying the WiiU isn't a Wii console..

It's a DS handheld console. DS stands for Dual Screen, no? If the 2DS has 2 screens then it's still a DS Console no matter what way you try to look at it.
