Thoughts of the Day – The Nintendo 2DS and Good Timing

GameOn Host Jeff Johnson talks about the recently announced Nintendo 2DS. Some have called this system a joke made into reality. Others have said this is a brilliant marketing move, targeting the younger audience without having to include warnings of 3D to parents on the system’s packaging.

Jeff thinks the smart move by Nintendo was launching their new handheld system on the exact same day as Pokémon X and Y’s release. While Jeff has no plans to buy the 2DS himself, he can understand why those just getting into the new generation of systems would buy this new system over its 3D brother.

What’s your thoughts on the Nintendo 2DS? Do you like it or do you think its a waste of time for Nintendo to even develop it?
