    For those who can't see the vid. It's basically a slate design rather than a clamshell and it plays all 3D games in 2D.


    Basically a flat 3DS with the 3D slider turned right down.

    Bad investment on Nintendo's part IMO, and if they're trying to create a cheaper alternative to the 3DS what's the point when the after-market for used 3DS is only going to grow and get cheaper with the arrival of 3DS XLs, one of a kind 3DS bundles and just time passing by ? SMMFH, they could have put the money towards something much more productive with better short and long term prospects.

    Nintendo need to start building the Miiverse compatibility with the 3DS so they can build a platform for content not hardware. Cuz that's where gaming is going to eventually go.

    i can see why they would do this from a moral perspective... 3d is horrible for developing eyes, and the amount of hours that kids play those can be harmful in the long run... as for the slate design i cant cosign that, but i respect it

    In silence there must be movement, and in motion, there must be silence.
    Small movement is better than big,
    No movement is better than small.
    Silence is the Mother of all movement.
    In Movement you should be like a Dragon or a Tiger.
    In Non-Movement you should be like a Buddha.

    As long as they have your respect nothing else matters.

    They're investing in this because there is a market for this.

    Because not everybody wants to play these games in 3D and risk a lower battery life than something with no 3D features at all, even with the slider off.

    I do think they could do a better job with the Miiverse concept but building a platform for lots of content is what their eShop is all about in the first place. Lots of independent gems on there already.

    I believe the market is too small for such an investment when those resources could be going to more profitable developments, i don't think the target demographic will want this.

    Because you're assuming they will mass produce this on the level of the 3DS. They won't. This is made for a niche audience and will be distributed and marketed accordingly.

    "those resources could be going to more profitable developments"

    Like what? every department in a company has an allocated budget. Those "profitable developments" already have theirs. Nintendo does enough R&D especially with the handheld market to know when they should supply for certain demand. They wouldn't be making this if they weren't sure there was an audience out there for it.

    You'll have to excuse my ignorance on this console fam, you right.

    I was at the local EB Games and I seen they had on the new Pokemon game coming out - "PLAY IT IN 2D and 3D !!!!" I remember being confused about 2D on a 3DS but now I'm putting two and two together keep in mind they been doing the preorder joints since last month. These niggas knew exactly what they were doing. They gonna drop the 2DS and the new pokemon game just in time for Christmas dayum....

    They really ought to pump cash in the Miiverse cuz longer term it's gonna be a war for content.
