So if it's "meant for young kids" (as if the 3DS wasn't made for kids already) and is intended to be more toy-like as a "starter 3DS", then wouldn't it be better for it to have the close feature so the screens won't get scratched?

LOL. You're funny.

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.

Also, if you have this version, won't everything be a walking advertisement for 3D? All the games with '3D' in the title, games with 3D icons on the screen, games reminding you about the 3D slider... It's all kinda weird...

like when DSlite came out and all older games had a "turn-off backlight" button that would make the screen go black completely because turning the backlight off was a first DS exclusive feature.
or when GBA micro came out and the DS could play GBA and had large GBA ports that screamed "you don't need GBA I can play it too".
or even DSi that had almost no games and even games optimized to it had only DS slapped over it instead of DSi?(not counting DSi Ware)

Are you suggesting that people aren't aware of the 3DS's features? I think if consumers were to choose a 2DS over a 3DS they would know what they're giving up...or at least I really really hope so.

The tweets from the Kaz Hirai parody account on this are hilarious:

"Nintendo announces the Nintendo 1Ds: an entry level console that only plays One Direction related video games"

"The Nintendo 2DS is perfect for people who found both opening the 3DS and turning off the 3D too difficult"

"I’m suing Nintendo. Making a 2D handheld that nobody wants is an idea they stole from the PS Vita"

Kaz's comments are wonderful. I love stuff like that.

Also, quick question: how would first person shooters work on this?

This... came out of nowhere.

However, I understand it's not here to replace the 3DS, and will be a better option for kids (no 3D, more durable, cheaper).

Hope the name doesn't confuse the mass market, though (the same group of people whom this is targeted at), especially considering the DS still has relevant shelf space dedicated to it at pretty much every major retailer.

If they gave the 3DS XL a similar uni-body redesign I'd love that.

I swore, I heard about this right after I woke up . I was sure it was a joke, but it isn't. I'm still wondering what to think of the system.

If it could fold it would sell a crap load faster.

Edit: seriously Nintendo? thats the BEST name for a new console you could come up with?.

Another great tweet from a Justin McElroy:
"Ricky, why are you crying?"
"Mom, the 3DS fell into my pocket again!"
"There's gotta be a better way!"
[Nintendo 2DS logo,fade to black]

And, of all people, here's what Michael Pachter had to say:
"The 2DS is a great idea, should boost sales meaningfully. I think a lot of people don't care about the 3D feature, this gives them a choice"

Because, you know, being forced to play everything in 2D gives people a choice, but having a slider to switch between 2D and 3D is just forcing itself on people...
