GameStop Experiences Profit Gains, With Hardware Increases Driven by 3DS and 2DS Sales

Boxed discs appear to be making a comeback

As some have predicted the imminent demise of retail gaming outlets, brought on by an era of new restrictions on game sharing and the used games market, US retailer GameStop has drawn a course full sail in the opposite direction. A new report by Games Industry reveals that the US gaming giant actually...

Exclusive 2DS Pokémon X And Y Bundles Announced For South Korea

Gotta bundle 'em all

South Korean Nintendo fans will soon be able to get their hands on two new hardware bundles which include the recent smash-hit Pokémon X & Y.

The Combined 2DS and Pokémon X & Y Launch Was Planned to Provide "Entry-Level Product"

Not a quick fix or retreat from 3D visuals in future projects

When the 2DS was revealed it was met, by some at least, with derisive snorts and incredulity. Despite its clear target audience, demonstrated perfectly by its co-ordinated launch with Pokémon X & Y, there was — and still is, probably — a line of argument that said it was a...

Limited Edition Luigi 2DS Is A Custom-Made Console, Not An Official Product

Rose Colored Gaming fools everyone, including us

We are so glad we used the "rumour" tag when we posted that story about a Luigi-themed 2DS console the other day. Although the photos looked utterly convincing and we — like most of the internet — were taken in by the green-and-white system, it transpires that it's not an official product, but a...

2DS Now Available For Less Than £100 In The UK

The run up to the holiday season is upon us

The Nintendo 2DS launched less than two weeks ago on the same day as Pokémon X & Y landed on shelves around the world. Retailers in the UK set the price at £109.99 but with Christmas fast approaching several of them have made the move to knock a whole ten pounds off to get the console under that...

Repairing a 2DS Screen Costs $65 Plus Shipping in North America

That's half a new 2DS

The 2DS, as its design suggests, is a tough little unit designed to survive the rigours of clumsy young hands — as we put it in our Nintendo 2DS review, "this thing can take a hit". Of course, it's not indestructible, and even without the break-ready 3DS hinge and regardless of its tough plastic back, it still has two...

Uh-Oh, That Guy Who Likes To Microwave Things Got His Hands On A 2DS

Confirms the "single screen" theory in the most brutal way possible

YouTube user dOvetastic likes to microwave consumer products for his own twisted entertainment, and films the results so the wider world can share in his rather disturbing pastime. You might recall his previous videos featuring a 3DS XL and Wii U. He's managed to secure a brand new...

Parent Trap: Nintendo 2DS Family Stress Test

Nintendo 2DS Family Stress Test

Family Gamer's Andy Robertson takes a look at the 2DS

With the 2DS fast approaching I've had some hands on time with the device. Rather than waxing lyrical over the perfectly crafted design (or indeed bemoaning the cheese-like profile) I wanted to put the console to the test in a real family setting. So I set-up another of my time-lapse battery...

We Opened Up The Nintendo 2DS And Found A 1300mAh Battery Inside

Same as the original 3DS model

We've been spending a lot of quality time with Nintendo's new 2DS console, and one of the first questions people have about the machine is how the battery life shapes up when compared to the 3DS and 3DS XL. Family Gamer's Andy Robertson will be answering that question in more detail as part of his Parent Trap blog on...

Five Reasons Why The 2DS Will Be The Biggest Selling Handheld This Christmas

Forget the jokes, we think Nintendo has a hit on its hands

When Nintendo announced the 2DS a short time ago, the internet was almost united in its level of befuddlement. Why remove the one thing the original system was sold on: its ability to display 3D images without the need for special glasses? It seemed like a backwards step for Nintendo and...
