Was surprised they were still out at major retail.


They're Nintendo's value product (really, $80 for one plus MK7, or $200 for a New 3DS XL). Plus, 3DS XLs have been in relatively short supply last I've seen, so they may simply be what's available.

I get the impression that Nintendo produces more 2DS systems whenever they release a new Pokemon Game so that the little kiddos can play Pokemon on something affordable. The re-release of the 2DS on retail shelves probably has a lot to do with Pokemon Sun and Moon.

That's great. I've thought about selling my DSiXL and getting one of those for the little one instead.

I assume that SNES VC games will work on the New 2DS XL (they do not work on the original 2DS). Can anyone confirm or deny this?

My understanding is that the New 2DS is supposed to do everything the New 3DS does except 3D.

Now that Metroid is finally coming, I think I'll get one and I'm still leaning towards this new 2DS. I think I'd have fun with the 3D for like a day and never care again, so I doubt I need it...

Are pretty much all 3DS games available digitally though? How is storage space? I think it would actually be a lot more viable to go full digital with a handheld, even with my beloved Zelda's and Metroid's, etc. I think I'd rather not own physical games of handheld stuff again.

I think the max size SD card is 32 GB. I don't know how big the games typically are. They probably vary a lot.

I just bought a 2DS, thinking that SNES VC games would work but nope. So, I now have a new 2DS XL preordered from Toys r Us. Yay.

I think as long as you can format it in FAT32, you can go larger than 32GB, according to my limited research over at GBATemp. Some folks were saying they had 128GB and 256GB cards going. Windows won't let you format in FAT32, but other external tools will.

That hinge is super flappy damn! Funny that was the first thing Jeff did. I have a DS Lite and it doesn't do that barely at all.

Not to sound dramatic but, for me, that alone is a reason to give the nod to the slate style 2DS.
