    Exclamation Nintendo Wii U Price Drop Confirmed + 2DS announced

    Wii U Price Drop Confirmed - IGN

    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.
    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.

    Nintendo Announces 2DS - IGN

    It is fugly. It couldn't at least close like a regular DS/DS Lite/3DS? What were they thinking?



    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.
    Guess I'll have to stick with the 3DS XL at $199.99 when Pokemon X and Y comes out on Oct 12th.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    What the fudge?? That looks very uncomfortable to hold. I just got a 3DS not too long ago, and hardly play it. Only when im bored cause i only have Legend of Zelda:OoT for it.

    $299 for a Wii and a remake of a 10 year old game. Not a chance I'm buying this.

    Have had Wii U since Day 1 and I still play it a lot. Got Ducktales HD last week (multiplatform). Pikmin 3 just before that. Super Luigi U was already digitally released a month ago, but gets a disk Sunday. Rayman Legends on Tuesday (now multiplatform). Wonderful 101 is released Sept 15th. It is going to be quite busy since they're releasing a solid game every 2-3 weeks (all the third-party ports kick-in during October to hit before Thankgiving).

    As far as deals go, nothing so far this year beats the 50% off the Basic set ($150) that I got from Target a few weeks ago. They just clearanced them one day out of the blue. That one went to my brother for his birthday.

    Release dates from today as well:

    Wind Waker HD Oct 4 (and presumably Wii U bundle as well)
    Wii Party U Oct 25
    Super Mario 3D World Nov 22
    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Dec 6

    also 3DS games
    The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds - Nov 22
    Mario Party Island Tour - Nov 22
