I'm a little puzzled as to why they didn't make it so you can close it up and put it in your pocket like a regular DS/3DS...
It is really weird that it can't be folded haven't they all been foldable since the Gameboy Advanced?
It is a good idea seeing as many people would not want to pay $40 for 3D capability especially when many haven't been too impressed with the 3D in the 3DS and even fewer have found it necessary. I am curious, does the 3DS have the ability to turn off the 3D and play only in 2D?
Anything 3D is a gimmick because the technology just isn't there yet, it's all about hologramssssss
It's being rumored that it's a single screen; it's just the chassis that makes it look like two. A single screen will draw less power, is cheaper, and of course, will result in the lack of a folding ability.
If it's 1 big screen they should take off the splitting make it a tablet game cobaole
But it's not meant to be a tablet console... it's a DS. The DS design has been this forever. If they had to make it one big screen, that would require a retooling of the software, and none of the DS games would look natural anymore. I don't see that as too appealing.
I understand the need to be retooled that's what I was suggesting, that they pretty much port the DS to a tablet design with physical buttons a lot like the Razer edge with controller peripheral. The wii U isn't doing well and it isn't going to do well, the 3DS and XL variant didn't start off well and isn't where Nintendo hoped it would be now, and this 2DS doesn't look like the answer to any of nintendos problems (it could have been if it could flip closed). Since they seem a little desperate with this move so maybe they should try their hand at a tablet platform before they to completely broke and exit out of the hardware business. Just a thought since app games bring in quite a bit of cash especially with the name Nintendo behind it.
