Good timing, this will move enough consoles when Pokemon Sun/Moon arrives.

Hope that means we will get a discount on the 3DS too.

if you dont own one and dont need the 3d or a generally just faster console in the "new" lineup, this is nice to play pokemon and stuff with, some really good games on the 2ds/3ds

My daughter is learning how to read. By Christmas 2016, she be ready for a brand new Nintendo 2DS.

Wow, that is an amazing price for a console with Mario Kart 7 on it, how big is the SD card preinstalled in these I wonder? for that price it can't be too big surely? I'm not a huge fan of the design of the 2ds but still, that price makes the system in the region of $50 when you factor in the free game.

2DS comes with a 4GB SD card I think.

I think the target audience for the 2DS won't need a huge SD Card storage.

So glad I kicked my Nintendo habit. The WiiU soured me off N hopefully forever.

You know, it is almost impossible to believe that the same company that has done so much right with the 3DS - marketing, price management, etc - has done so much *wrong* with the Wii U - no cohesive marketing message, no consistent push, failing to market or bundle at key periods, and the thing is *still* 300 freaking dollars. It's astounding. And what's more astounding is how Nintendo seems to marvel at their failings with the Wii U when the answers for what they are doing wrong are to be found WITHIN THEIR OWN COMPANY.

OOT 3D FOR ONLY $20!!!!!! At last, Nintendo!


johnsobas (on 11 May 2016)

was able to get $80 price during black friday like 2 years ago, but it's nice they are lowering the price for everyone and this includes MK7


spurgeonryan (on 11 May 2016)

Good deal! Wish they would lower the Wii U 100 dollars now.


Ljink96 (on 11 May 2016)

The 2DS would sell even better if it adopted a clam shell design but this is a good start. The technology must be getting really cheap.


fleischr (on 11 May 2016)

Had the 2DS before I upgraded to New 3DS XL. Though I prefer N3DS vastly and play 3DS games more often since having it, 2DS is a great value.

Wait. People were buying the 2DS? I kind of thought it was a joke.


Jranation (on 11 May 2016)

Nah its real. You probably missed the Pokemon coloured 2DS! Which had Blue, Red and Green and Yellow!
