Honestly, I think the 2DS looks more comfortable to hold than a 3DS.  But then I've never liked the ergonomics of the 3DS (or DS for that matter).

Wonder what the battery life is like.  I hope Nintendo didn't cut corners by using an even shittier battery than the one in the 3DS...

Something's telling me that they're going with the slab design to create a device with a similar handle to the WiiU pad.

But yeah, the clamshell hinges tend to break more often than not (my DSlite for one did that, despite my best efforts to not break it). I just wonder how they're going to implement a sleep mode now that you can't just close the system and call it a night?
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

A button, perhaps?  It's not that hard...

Yeah, the Vita has a sleep function that works just fine (well... apart from having to hold the power button in for 5 seconds to turn it on)

It's tablet shaped, one large screen - not two - separated by plastic, mono sound (stereo with headphones), costs $130, launches October 12th.

Weird.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Oh Nintendo...

How long is it going to take them to get their act together with regards to digital content?

On the one hand, cheap and no stupid 3D effect I will never use anyway.

On the other hand, small screens and I can't fold it.

Well I mean I could fold it but it's more like I cant fold it without breaking it.

Either way, I highly suspect to see at least DSi levels of battery life on this sucker. There's a lot more real estate on this one that's not tied up in hinges or 3D tech. Though I am a little worried to see the face buttons so far down the side of the wedge versus the shoulder pads on the top.

wait for the 2DS XL...Honestly though, I rarely ever use the 3D function on my 3DS (at least when I had it) and the lower price point is tempting.

Actually I believe it's supposed to have shorter battery life. Ah well.

Doesn't the system transfer take care of that?

System transfer is an incredibly clunky solution to a problem that's already been solved better by literally everyone else in the entire industry.  Not only that, but the implication here is that system transfer between a 3DS and 2DS doesn't even work.

I don't deny that it's super clunky and Nintendo is ridiculously late to the party but I have no idea why a system transfer wouldn't work considering the two use identical OSes.
