That's awesome. Just sold mine recently because I really needed cash. My 4 year old loved playing with it, but wouldn't quit turning the 3D on, and they recommend not having kids using the 3D. Will definitely get one of these, never really used the 3D anyhow.

It SEEMS more ergonomic (if you have tiny hands) but that shape is just so weird. Why wasn't there a Nintendo Direct for all these announcements?

EDIT: This is probably for the 7 under crowd that always breaks the hinge on the normal DS's and whose eyes probably can't adjust well to 3D for being so young. Still....

There is honestly no point in this...

If you want to play in 2D, I thought common sense would tell you to turn the depth slider all the way down, why market a whole new console just to play in 2D? The design is terrible as well.

They say that for legal reasons because the 3D can cause seizures in some children. If your child can play it with the 3D on, then they are safe. It's just a blanket policy to cover their buns.

I like it, but wish it was like the originals and flipped open. It looks like some hybrid controller for the Wii-U.

Thinking back on it, this might actually be quite a smart move for Nintendo.

It's a cheap version of something a lot of people want. Tons of people thought the 3D was a stupid gimmick, and now that's out of the way.

I'm just going to flat out say it, that is the worst design for a handheld I've ever seen in recent memory.

The price itself isn't all that bad though, just wish they put more effort into the design.

DAMN THE KIDS.

I thought the 3D could be restricted in the parental controls anyway, but idk.

I'll buy it. Too bad the screens aren't XL-sized.

$120 is a great price, and the form factor looks more comfortable than the original 3DS.

Stop being haters.

Yeah, my first thought was "why on earth would they remove the hinge?" but thinking about the very likely scenario of the <7 breaking said hinge does make some sense.

I'll be sticking with my launch day console still, with the 3D slider to max personally.

Ugliest handheld I've seen. Should have kept the DS design.
I'd stick with the original 3DS(or XL) even if this one is cheaper.
