PSA Nintendo 2DS now on sale to budgetminded gamers

Many gamers are focused on the PS4 and Xbox One launches, but we'd be remiss if we didn't mention a third that just took place: the Nintendo 2DS is now available in Australia, Europe and North America. US-based shoppers can buy black/blue and black/red models for $129. As a refresher, the system is aimed at both frugal buyers and newcomers who may not miss the 3DS' hinged design and namesake 3D visual effects; it still handles 3DS and DS games. The 2DS isn't likely to please veteran players, but it may satisfy parents who want a cheap way to introduce their kids to handheld gaming.
