Nintendo Wii U Price Drop Confirmed + 2DS announced
Wii U Price Drop Confirmed - IGN
About time they had a price drop. They knew they had to do it before the PS4 and Xbox One are released. I personally think it's still too much, but that's just me.
The new price will take effect alongside the previously-confirmed Wind Waker HD bundle, which will also retail for $299.99 and includes a 32GB hard drive, a special Zelda-themed GamePad, a digital copy of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and a digital version of the Zelda Hyrule Historia book.
Nintendo Announces 2DS - IGN
It is fugly. It couldn't at least close like a regular DS/DS Lite/3DS? What were they thinking?
Guess I'll have to stick with the 3DS XL at $199.99 when Pokemon X and Y comes out on Oct 12th.
The 2DS is fully compatible with all 3DS and DS games but does not include the ability to display games in 3D. It still features all the functionality of 3DS (WiFi, local multiplayer, etc.) and can be put to sleep using a slider that replicates closing the clamshell on a standard 3DS. WiFi can still be turned off, though itís done via controls in the software rather than with a physical switch.
The 2DS will launch in red and blue models to start and will be sold alongside the standard 3DS (still available for $169.99) and 3DS XL ($199.99). It will include a 4GB SD card and uses the same power source as 3DS and DSi. It also includes two cameras on the back side, so AR games still function and players can still take 3D photos -- they simply canít be displayed on the 2DS, but are still viewable in full 3D if transferred to 3DS. The 2DS only includes one speaker, which plays mono sound, but features full stereo via its headphone jack.
