    1. If, for whatever reason, my 3ds broke down or something, I’d probably get a 3DS XL over a 2DS. I prefer my handhelds to be somewhat portable, and I find the 3D pretty cool in a number of 3DS titles, like in Kid Icarus for instance.

      I was rather surprised that the 2DS was chosen as the next iteration of the 3DS, rather than a new version of the 3ds with a second control nub/slider/stick. I might not be the intended audience for the 2DS, but I can actually see it be popular with parents seeking a video game console for their children.

      Thanks for commenting!

    2. These handhelds never been an important part of gaming in my country [Turkey] (besides those tetris machines ! 😀 ) , so I am wondering how is it for other parts of the world.

      I used to be a PC gamer strictly since I didn’t have much option back then. Right now , since I have a new website, I am trying to cover every side of gaming for all who are interested.
