Why is it BS?. 3ds is old hardware incompatible with the new features and they are offering customers an option too get new features without having to buy a new console. That seems pretty consumer friendly to me.

They could be worse like Apple and require hardware upgrades to use software that would run perfectly fine on the previous model.
I'm pretty sure 50% off qualifies as a deal.
3DS launched early 2011. 2DS is a stripped down version of the 3DS at a bargain price. Not an upgraded version.

All hardware to launch after Amibo was released supports it.

The current generation 3DS has Amibo support built into it. This is just to support older generation hardware. Hardware that came out long before Nintendo introduced Amibos.

OK let me get this straight... "Old" hardware...?

Wii U: Has NFC support for Amiibo's built into gamepad. Release date: Nov 18, 2012
Nintendo 2DS: Release date: Oct 12, 2013. (Nearly, but not quite 11 months *AFTER* Wii U was released.)
Amiibo: Nov 21, 2014

So the Wii U had NFC support *MORE* than 2-years BEFORE amiibo's were released. I'm not aware of ANY functionality the NFC supports on Wii U EXCEPT Amiibo, but you're telling me the 2DS is "old" hardware and therefore it's perfectly acceptable that it does not have amiibo support built-in, yet the new (ultra expensive) 3DS has it is "perfectly acceptable"?

Are you an iPhone user? If so, would make perfect sense...

Nonetheless the 2DS still is not *identical* hardware to 3DS, and if the argument is that 3DS didn't have amiibo support because it was non-existent at the time (fair argument), 2DS coming out nearly a year after Wii U (which did have support) should have had it added. NOW... If the 2DS was the same hardware, yet with say a lower-end processor, etc., then yes, your argument could be valid... but it did require at least a partial re-design.

Now, if Nintendo were to allow me to load my Amiibo via my Wii U gamepad, something I would think they could support as they allow you to play Super Smash Bros on Wii U using a 3DS as your controller, yet offer the NFC reader as a more portable option, I wouldn't be complaining. Because I would be given a choice... free (but PITA) or not-free (but easy).
