So, today news broke out about Nintendo’s new handheld device called the Nintendo 2DS. I don’t play Nintendo games regularly, but I would gladly play if there’s a Wii during a party. I don’t know if I can give a qualified opinion or stance about this whole thing because I am not familiar with their products. However, I wouldn’t want to let that get in the way of having a healthy discussion on its existence between Unreality readers.
Basically, what I know is that it is priced at 2DS and it can play the games from past handheld devices. However, it won’t have games developed for that particular platform if I am not mistaken. From an outsider’s stand point, I think it’s rather confusing to name it a 2DS. It’s obvious to gamers because it is not 3D (I heard the 3DS even has an option to turn it off). If they are marketing this to non-gamer parents, then the name might cause them to think that this is an inferior device. That’s just my thoughts.
In defense of the Nintendo 2DS, there are articles out there that argue that this would be a hit because a tsunami of moms will buy a Pokemon device for their kids as one writer from Kotaku pointed out. Perhaps, we aren’t the target market for the Nintendo 2DS?
What do you think?
