MSRP $149.99, Temporary Price Cut to $107 thru Saturday. Appears to be in store only.

Save an extra 5% with REDcard

Other TPCs I noticed was the Titanfall Bundle for $449.99 (confirming the price through 4/5 at least), and Skylanders Giants Starter Packs for $19.99

Shit, I'm off to Target then. Is the Pokemon game a code or already installed onto the 2ds?

I was just about to post this also! I'm in the store and just took a picture of the sign .


Pokemon x is installed on the system. For $107 ($101.65 with red card) this is a steal!

2DS vs 3DS: debate now!

 

I've been thinking about getting a 3DS for Fire Emblem: Awakening + Bravely Default; or would a 2DS work fine?

That is making me consider a 2DS. I actually want to try the new Pokemon, so that is a value add. I really want the XL though. Decisions, decisions.

Big things to keep in mind: Obviously, the 2DS is fine if you don't care about 3D, but, the controls are higher towards the top screen than the standard 3DS, which may bother some and may not.. And also, the 2DS has only one speaker, so it's mono, not stereo sound. That could bother some as well. For just over $100 for an entry system that includes a $40 game, it's a great deal for those that just wanna play the games and don't care about the details like I mentioned.

Is it installed on the 2ds or on the sd card?

Also would this 2ds plus a qualifying game, get you that free pokemon game through Club Nintendo?

Shut up and buy it if you're in the market for a new 3DS. That is all.

Although a good deal I find the 2ds extremly uncomfortable as well as no convient place to put it while traveling. I would recommend peple just save for the xl

Grab a 3ds xl off of cowboom from $115 higher quality overall.

I grabbed a 2ds for my daughter and key differences I've noticed other than size and 3d are: 2ds has mushy buttons, sound is louder than my xl, much more comfortable than the original 3ds especially with the nerf case.

Really you can't go wrong either wway but I really enjoy the build quality of the xl. Fire emblem has some pretty amazing 3d moments as well, I love seeing the birds fly across screen in 3d.

I personally could care less about the 3D, I doubt I would ever use it anyway. But I am not a huge fan of the tablet design and I know I already enjoy the XL and can game on it comfortably since I've used my sons a few times. But half the price plus a really good game makes me want to give the 2D a shot. If I don't like it, I can probably recoup a lot of the cost by selling it.

I'm sold!

If you just want to play games in the house and not bring your DS anywhere then the 2DS is great for that.

 

However I wouldn't buy it if you want to go for portability or streetpasses, if you don't care about streetpasses or don't play any games that use them then go with the 2DS. Just be warned once you find out about streetpass you WILL want to take your 3DS everywhere, and the 2DS is not really suited for that.

 

I am not even sure if the XL is suited for that, I only own the regular 3DS. But I know that I want to take it absolutely everywhere and never have to leave it behind for any reason. When I go to certain places I like to pack light, and I am concerned the XL will just not fit that bill and those are the places where I am most likely to encounter a streetpass. For day to day I would be fine with the XL but for all those summer events I go to, I just don't want to have to leave it behind because there is no room in the bag for it.

After googling it, I think I can safely say I will not miss that feature. At all.

Streetpassing is the best feature of the 3ds.

Odd... but the bundle is either a vanilla red or blue console correct? Nothing different about it?

How's the screen size? Comparable to the original or the xl? I had trouble with the original system cause it cramped up my hands. So would the 2ds more comfortable?

the screen size is the same as normal 3ds exactly and the other different is the 2ds does not fold and it is mono sound only no stereo sound and no power saving mode and the only way to put it to sleep is to hit a button manually vs 3ds you just closed it and it just a tiny bit heavier

The one I went to had the sign but none of them in stock, seems like a popular deal or there weren't very many to begin with. Either way, the deal is not worth hunting down multiple targets.

Why? Maybe my googling didn't do a good job of showing the value. Someone sell it, I am curious.

my dsixl cramped my hands a little. Picked up a 2ds a month back and really like it. I haven't had any cramping like I did with my xl.
