Nintendo cuts price of 2DS portable gaming system to just $99

Nintendo slashes price of 2DS

The Nintendo 2DS has received a price cut from $129.99 down to $99.99, and now serves as a great way to enter the video gaming market.




Unlike the 3DS, the 2DS doesn't open or close, but is promoted as a sturdier and more rugged device better suited for children.


"At a suggested retail price of $99.99, Nintendo 2DS is an even more attractive introductory option for first-time gamers," said Scott Moffitt, EVP of sales & marketing at Nintendo North America. "The new lower-priced hardware combined with the strong lineup of new games launching this year and arguably the best library of games in this generation makes it a great time be a Nintendo fan."


Nintendo doesn't have a current generation came console to compete with the Microsoft Xbox One or Sony PlayStation 4 - and while the Nintendo NX is currently in development - the Japanese game studio remains committed to the portable gaming experience.
