I got my 2Ds about a week and a half ago, and I would like to say that so far I am impressed. But is it really worth your money? Keep reading to find out!
The 2Ds has everything that you would, Street Pass, Mii Plaza, Video, eStore, AR cards, and Swapnotes. It isn’t different at all from the 3Ds when it comes to basic functions. It has the same screen size as the regular 3DS, so if you are expecting some giant tablet then gtfo. I had initially thought that it was going to be a brick type system but it is actually angled, so that the closer end to you in thinner than the side with the R and L buttons. I like this but there is one problem with it. The 2DS on has one speaker, and don’t get me wrong- it’s one hella speaker (it does the same job as 2 3DS speakers) but it is located SO awkwardly.
Everything has been moved up a bit. The D pad and joy stick thingie are next to the top screen and the letter buttons are too. The power button is round and no longer sticking out- which I like, and the start and select buttons are actually buttons and right above the power button. Because of this new shift, the speaker is at the far left corner of the console. This is a problem because that it where I rest my thumbs when I am using the L button.
Besides that I think that it has a cool design, it reminds me of the WiiU and it feels like a less mature style but when you are playing video games who really cares about maturity? Think about that.
The stylus is longer, which is a break for my achey little hands (really, I have little hands they’re 6.7 inches from the bottom of my palm to the tip of my middle finger) but besides my hands, I imagine that the larger stylus must be better for those who have large hands and hated the small stylus that was “expandable”.
I generally do not like the fact that it doesn’t close because I have to switch on the sleep button when I want to use street pass. I also cannot fit the 2DS in my pocket to get play coins so I have been degraded to shaking the 2DS for 7 minutes. It is also prone to getting scratches on the screen because of its inability to close. And I am a teenager who thows stuff in her backpack so it’s going to be all beat up by the end of this year. I mean to go buy the case but I see its price and decide to buy a game instead with that money.
So, uh, Nintendo- if you want to be a homie you can send me one…preferably red…in case you feel like it I am right here. :3
Overall if you don’t have a 3DS yet and you want one, buy the 2DS, it looks pretty boss, But if you insist on 3D images go for the 3DS, I just wanted to save you money.
So, which do you think is better?
