Missed out when they had red and blue cause I waited too long. Never thought these would come back. 3DS and 2DS consoles getting up there in price so this is a great deal. Officially refurbished by Nintendo. $5 is flat rate so if you want to grab anything else like a Nintendo Switch Dock for $40, toys, plush, etc, this would be a good time.

I got both a year and half ago. The 2DS is no joke and I would take it over the new 3DS XL, which would be more than double the price. It lacks 3D screen, two shoulder buttons, 2nd joystick nub (which is often unusable), and newer CPU, but plays 99.9% of the games well and without worry. This includes all DS and most 3DS games, NES and GBA virtual console. Only things it can't play are a few games like Xenoblade, Binding of Isaac, and SNES virtual console.

EDIT: 2DS vs new 3DS XL differences also include:
- mono speaker vs stereo speakers
- easy to access full size SD slot vs hard to access micro SD slot
- smaller, sharper screens vs larger blockier screens (effectively same resolution...new 3DS XL has double horizontal resolution on top screen for 3D)
- no NFC/Amiibo vs built in Amiibo reader
- sleep slide switch vs sleep by closing clamshell

But again, this 2DS is great to natively play back library of thousands of DS and 3DS games, virtual console, or hacks to play even more like GB/GBC/GBA and NES.

EDIT 2: If you're a Pokemon junkie, you can officially play all (or almost all) previous generations of Pokemon. GB/GBA games are in eShop, you can play DS/3DS games on cartridge and I think you can transfer all Pokemon out of those games officially with the PokeBank app in the eShop and transfer them to the new Pokemon Home app on Switch and mobile. I don't have all the details, but this would let you carryover all previous Pokemon into Home officially.
keywords are "google", "do your own research"
It is objectively sharper since, again, it's the same resolution and smaller, so higher DPI. Regarding TN vs IPS panels, I never got into that and I would assume unless you had both next to each other, you wouldn't notice, and you definitely wouldn't notice while playing a game for an extended period of time.

Coming back for another edit:
what the previous person was talking about is the "IPS" screen lottery on the new 3DS XL. IPS screens are more highly sought after, with some versions like the Zelda edition, more likely to have IPS screens. This 2DS all have the same screens (really 1 big screen with plastic covering up to divide it into 2). I don't think it's it big deal to try to get an IPS screen, and you're not guaranteed to get any IPS panels even if you get a new 3DS XL and doesn't really affect what or how you play, but the hardcore 3DS people swear by the IPS screens.

Got this with a Bravely Default Poster and Pokemon Snap Zippercase from My Nintendo (since I was paying for shipping anyway).

Thanks!

One neat thing about these is you can also use them as a controller on the Wii u when playing smash bro's. Same goes for 3ds.

I don't know man, I think you are missing the fact that 2ds has not competition when it comes to the screen department, 3ds xl comes with 1 or 2 IPS screens while 2ds only comes in blurry TN panels. and if you have both and still think 2ds is 'sharper', I can only assume you're trolling. Wink

I had a New 3DS XL and a 2DS. Sold both for a New 2DS XL. But if you've never had the 3DS platform, the 2DS is a great option. Sure you give up a bunch of features that the N3DS XL may have but you're playing on a handheld device that doesn't boast high end graphics to begin with. Your kid can't snap the clam shell folding design and you're not really missing out on the incompatible games. At this point in time, you probably already have a Switch anyway. Ton of great games to play and backwards compatible with DS. I'll always have a 3DS device.

Strangely a lot of SNES titles work emulated. I am perplexed they couldn't get it to work on the 2DS/3DS.

I also have a "NEW" 3DS XL and it handles SNES emulation marginally better.

Only the n3DS XL has a chance of getting an IPS screen. o3DS XL has dual TN.
