The Nintendo 2DS continues its ascent downwards with respect to pricing. The portable gaming console originally debuted October 12th, 2013 for $129.99, but had that price trimmed by $30 last August.

You can also use the bottom touchscreen to pause, play, and seek. All of these options are available even when a show... Read more...
While Nintendo gets left behind in this year's next-generation console war, it's doing something a little different. Granted, Nintendo has always operated a little differently. It was the first to truly embrace motion controls on its Wii, and the Wii U shipped with a GamePad that's most definitely a first in the sector. But, with the Wii U doing so poorly that it's being forced to hack $50 from the cost of the 32GB unit, Nintendo is having to lean on something else: handhelds.
