Nintendo has just launched its budget-friendly handheld gaming console, the Nintendo 2DS. The 3D top screen featured on the 3DS is gone and the device does not fold up like its predecessor. Along with the deleted screen and hinges, the 2DS also managed to delete quite a chunk of cash off of its price as well.




The Nintendo 2DS is capable of playing all 3DS games and features a 400x240-pixel top screen while the bottom screen is a unimpressive 320x240-pixel display. The 2DS features an included stylus, 4GB SD card, 1300mAh battery and a "3D" Camera. Wi-Fi connectivity is present as is the ability to download and store games. Nintendo's 2DS will retail at a pricing point of $130 which is $40 less than the 3DS and a whopping $70 less than the 3DS XL.
