    Very good console. It's not required having a 3ds to have fun. My 2ds does everything.

    Nice product for best price!

    I was in the market for a handheld gaming system for my 6 year old daughter. We had a Leap Pad 2 before, and we were not impressed by the longevity. After much research, we decided to buy her a Nintendo 2DS, since it was sturdier for smaller children, and we didn't want her to hurt her eyes with a 3DS. I decided to buy this product off of Best Buy since the website had the one we wanted (the Blue one with the Mario Kart game code) for the best deal. Both Amazon and Walmart had this gaming system, but were more expensive. I bought it at BestBuy.com, and opened it upon arrival. We will be giving this to our daughter for Christmas, and I wanted to make sure that I was happy with the quality and design. I was pleased with both. It is more complicated to use than the Leap Pad, but it is also much more advanced and high quality. I'm sure that she will love playing on it once she opens it on Christmas morning. I downloaded the Mario Kart game on it. It took me about 2 hours to set everything up and download the game, so I was glad that it did that ahead of time so she can play on it as soon as she opens it. I will update my review once we've had it for a longer period of time, but I am pretty confident that it will work well for our needs!

    Fun handheld

    Picked this up for my husband to play games with our daughter. He enjoys using this very much. I do like the fact that it doesn't close, because the hinges wore out on another one we had in the past.

    A Must-Have for Kids of ALL Ages

    |
    Posted .

    I bought the Red/Black and Blue/Black models for my 2 younger sons last year for Christmas. They love them... and so do I. So, I bought the Mint Green/White model for MYSELF. Now, we can all play multiplayer games together!!! The nicest thing about the Mint Green/White model is that the Mario Kart 7 software was Pre-Installed; so, I didn't have to spend the extra time downloading it from the Nintendo e-shop. (Both the Red and Blue models came with a code for a free download of Mario Kart 7.) I just recently ordered another one for my 27 year-old son. It's a nice little system at a GREAT price. And... Nintendo e-shop cards will make great stocking stuffers this Christmas.

    Pretty Cool

    I wanted to get a DS to play some games like Zero Escape, classics like Zelda, and maybe Pokemon now that it seems to be gaining popularity again. At first, I was really reluctant to getting the 2DS since it looks inexpensive; but, that was also the same reason why I got it. I figured that under $100 was a great deal for a system I could play some classic games on, that I played while growing up; which also included the AC adapter (unlike the new 3DS) and Mario Kart. Once I opened the 2DS, it's actually really comfortable to hold and feels well made despite the low price tag. The 2DS is a great little system for anyone - kids or adults.

    What a DEAL!!!

    |
    Posted .

    I bought 2 units, one blue and one red, for my sons (ages 4 & 7) as Christmas gifts, and what GREAT gifts they were. I got these online at BestBuy.com a few days BEFORE Thanksgiving for $99.99, which was an excellent price for the MarioKart 7 bundle. I kept an eye on the ads from Best Buy and all of the competition, and NOBODY beat this price from Black Friday through the pre-Christmas sales. A note to Parents: If you are getting this as a gift for Christmas, Birthdays, etc. in situations where the recipient may want to play with it immediately, open it up beforehand and do the initial set-up, updates, and free-download of the game so it's ready to go when they're ready to play. I highly recommend setting the Parental Controls, as these things have an Internet browser built-in. It took me a total of about 2 hours to get them up and running (about 20 minutes to go through and set-up the user name, parental controls, and all the other initial set-ups, about another 20 minutes or so to do a system update, and around an hour or so to download the game, which is saved in "block" form on the included SDHC card. The fact that I was setting up 2 units at the same time may have increased the download time somewhat --- who knows. Had I known that it would take that amount of time, I would have taken care of all of that beforehand. All that being said... these things are GREAT!!! There are a lot of bells and whistles that your kids will figure out before you will. My 4-year old, after only a day and a half, already figured out how to use the front and rear-facing cameras. I might just treat myself to one for my birthday in a few months. Some kids just never grow up. Thanks Best Buy for making this Christmas extra Merry.

    Great Handheld Gaming System

    |
    Posted .

    I purchased the 2DS from Best Buy. I was considering getting the 3DS but honestly it made me a little lightheaded from the graphics. I found the 2DS to be a much better fit for my needs! I can play it for hours on end. The ONLY not great thing about it is the battery... but the cord is long so I can leave it plugged in and still be comfortable playing it.

    Best hand held for the price

    Posted .

    I picked this 2ds up as a secondary game system just to carry around. It is lighter than the 3ds model and not as big or bulky. You do have to understand that the screen is smaller. I picked this item up to have with me when i am standing in line waiting for the amiibos. It plays well and does the job and great to have if you need something smaller to carry around and still want to play games.

    My Son Loves It!

    |
    Posted .

    This was a Christmas present from Santa for my 8-year-old son. He wanted a 3DS, but that wasn't in Santa's budget. When he realized that the 2DS could play the 3DS games (just not in 3D), he was all for it. Both he and his 6-year-old brother love this hand-held game. The graphics and sound are great, the battery life is very good, and it has a built in camera. You can access the internet through the 2DS if you have a WiFi connection at your home--which we don't. All in all, this is a great gaming system since it plays both DS and 3DS games. My only issue with this game was that it came with a free MarioKart7 game which my son wanted anyway. I thought this bundle was a great deal in order to get both in one package. We were under the impression that the game cartridge was included in the box, but it wasn't. It had to be downloaded. As I already stated, we don't have WiFi at our house, and my son had to wait several days to visit the home of a relative with WiFi in order to actually acquire MaroKart7. It was pretty disappointing for an 8-year-old on Christmas morning to not be able to play his new game. Now, over a month later, all is well. The 2DS is performing just fine, and everyone is happy. I would recommend this for your little video gamer.

    Perfect Nintendo handheld for anti-3d folk

    |
    Posted .

    For those of you that can't stand 3d, not necessarily in a way that you think it is stupid and impractical, because it gives you headaches. Or you just don't wanna spend that extra $100 bucks, the 2ds is perfect. You can play all the wonderful 3ds games that you can on the 3ds and access pretty much all the same features, minus the 3d part, which it tells you this a lot by the way. You can even use amiibos, however you need to purchase a separate product for this, but even with that added $20 it is still a good deal cheaper. I would recommend getting a travel case if you want to take it around since it does not cold like the 3ds I would recommend top and bottom screen protectors as well. Though that is usually a given with any handheld device. It also doesn't hurt to get a bit of extra padding around the console itself because I was told, I have not experienced it, that they don't do so hot on a drop test. I purchased a silicon one for added grip and protection. This may sound like a lot, but my total was still bellow what a New 3ds XL costs. I hope this helps with your purchasing decision!

    Space between screens and DS transfer

    |
    Posted .

    I have a 3DS xL that is gold and black limited. As nice as that might sound, I Wanted something portable without waiting for the "new" 3ds. Lo and behold--i loved the 2DS. Except for 2 things. Design and manufacturing flaws AND 3DS system transfer. Its amazingly comfortable even for hands as big as mine, even more portable because its not all flippy as its bigger brothers(still suggest a screen protector and a nifty case) and has all u need to enjoy the library of games already available sans stereo spekers and 3D gaming for a VERY reasonable price. The design flaw i want to address isnt a major concern for most people except those afraid of getting dust under their screens...Which is what i had. The screen has a few mm of space from the actual clear sheet of plastic that protects it. and that bothers me because it gives dust extra space to easily enter. Why manufacturer flaw u ask? Because the unit i received had some dust inside from the factory and i couldnt easily get rid of it. Second concern of mine is NOT with the 2ds but with Nintendo. They need to unify all accounts to have access to their content. i did not want to transfer my entire library from my 3DS xL to my 2DS as it was my intention to sinply use my cartidges on the 2DS. What did i find? Some games I tried had saves not in the cart but in the SD card of my unit. Bad news? Yes because SD card data is specific to NNID and DS. so sadly my plan did not work entirely and the only solution is to have transferred ALL my 30gb of games plus their saves onto my 2DS and scrap my Limited Edition Zelda 3DS XL. So what i say to this? If it is a gift to a child who has no knowledge of anything i just mentioned and it is solely for a local experience with no worries of multiple systems or downloads, then YES BUY IT its a great systen with great games. But if you are in a situation like mine, hold off until we finally get the "new" 3ds. Money is worth spending on those consoles. Same price as a full 3DS (not 2DS) with a plethora of techy upgrades.

    Excellent bundle deal

    |
    Posted .

    I purchased this system with MarioKart 7 in a bundle package to give to a child as a "Secret Santa" gift. The product was presented well, easy to use right out of the box, and was already over half way charged upon opening (very important for a kid)! The fact that this bundle included a great game with it made it a no-brainer for the price. Nintendo has consistently made great portable gaming systems, and I like this one even better than the 3DS, which I feel is still a bit overpriced for what it is. The 2DS (this system) is perfect for no frills gaming and filling any spare time you have in a fun way.

    Everything you need at a value price!

    Nintendo has come through again. Known for their attention to price Nintendo has stripped out the 3D feature on their flagship 3DS handheld to deliver gaming on a budget. The 3D feature is something most gamer's turn off anyway. Pros: Value, simply put. This handheld covers most of your mobile gaming needs. Cons: The design of the 2DS does not allow for you close the lid like you do with other flip style Nintendo handhelds. I prefer to close the lid on handhelds as screen protection is very important. If you purchase this I would suggest a screen protector film like the one offered by Hori. The only other con is that this system lacks the processing power of the 3DSXL - you're mostly fine with this but some games (only a few) may chug a bit.

    Ideal for beginner gamers

    Posted .

    i've been doing research on the nintendo ds for the last 2 most for my 5 year old daughter. She has had the original leaped since she was 2 . She's completely taken over my tablet with wanting to play games so this was the next best thing. My daughter loves Disney and everything that come's with it so i was elated to know that nintendo had princess games on top of My little pony, Barbie and LAlaloopsy . Just to name a few i'm going to purchase her. This gaming console is perfect for her little hands . It reminds me of the "game boy". Now to my parents, with small children like myself, I purchased a 3 years protection plan just in case any damages or malfunctions with this system. I would also suggest you open it first and set it up because that took about a half hour and if your little one is just as anxious as mine with new toys they aren't going to want to wait for you to do that lol. Other than that the system is very user friendly and i can't wait to see herself come Christmas morning.

    Definitely purchase this over the more expensive 3DS if you don't care about the 3D. It also comes with a charger which retails at about 10$ and a Mario Kart 7 download code which is about $20. So you're really only paying about 50$ for the console itself! It also doesn't have any glossy finishings like the 3DS does so you won't have to worry about fingerprint smudges. The only downside is that it has no clam shell design but no worries since I will only be playing this at home.
