I ask again how desperate Nintendo is right now to find an answer against the onslaught of Android and Apple's iOS devices, iPhone, iPod touch, and the iPad, against the traditional mobile gaming market?
I'm not kidding. I wish I was. Meet the Nintendo 2DS. It's a 3DS without the 3D and without the hinge to fold it. The good thing is that this is only $130. The bad thing is that it's a $130 mobile gaming device from Nintendo that no one will buy.
Comments from Nintendo-centric sites seem generally supportive - finding the positive. But then again, we're generally a family-friendly bunch.
In other news, Nintendo also dropped $50 off the Wii U.
