I think this was a smart move. It comes out on the same day as Pokemon X & Y, so it will probably explode in sales. Strange how apparently the 2DS isn't being released in Japan, though... I guess there are so many people with 3DS's there already that they just don't care?

Glad they are going back to conventional designs. I was worried about a third screen on the back of the 4ds.
If you like my work: why not give me an internet?

So let me get this straight: no 3d and it cant be closed with a 2 screen design? No thanks. Sounds like a piece of junk.

I actually like this... the price is reasonable and I don't need 3d. I also think Nintendo should make kind of a new concept without touch screen and make it somewhat smaller with HD screen. Though that's not gonna happen too soon I reckon :P

...a single screen handheld like the Wii U gamepad (inb4 Nintendo 1DS).
Nintendo One Dual Screen?  I think not.

The worst part actually about the Wii Mini is that it has no online support.
No, the family edition was different.  It was the model that dropped gamecube support.  The Wii Mini went further and dropped online support :(

Yes, I'm quoting myself. :P It appears that the above statement is exactly what this thing is. This makes no sense to me at all. It's big and ugly, and there's no way in hell it's fitting in any of my pockets. It certainly isn't fitting into the pockets of anyone under seven years of age... (Nintendo's stated target demorgraphic for this device). This is supposed to be "portable" right? It also has a smaller screens than the 3ds XL, so that would contribute to eystrain much more than 3d imo.

I see this thing being a huge flop for Nintendo. I honestly can't see them selling many of these. I'm really quite confused by the direction they're trying to take here.

Yeah, if it was just a 3DS with no 3D, maybe I would have had a look at it. But its design (can't close it) makes it unusable for me. I'd rather pay 30€ more and be able to carry a 3DS with 3D disabled.
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

Now that I think about it, maybe too many kids lost their 3DS everywhere so Nintendo decided to design one that is easier to spot in the woods or something.

Meh, saving 50$ on a 170$ console does not seem worth losing the nice 3D and folding.  Is the 3Ds backwards compatable, or is that something only the 2ds has?

Nintendo handhelds have always had some backwards compatibility, so the 3DS can probably run NDS/DSi games as well. (I'm not 100% sure because I don't own one)
My projects
 - The Lost Survivors (Unreal Engine) ACTIVE [GameCommandoSquad main project]
 - Oxo, with single-calc multiplayer and AI (axe) RELEASED (screenshot) (topic)
 - An android version of oxo (java)  ACTIVE
 - A 3D collision detection library (axe) RELEASED! (topic)(screenshot)(more recent screenshot)(screenshot of it being used in a tilemapper)
Spoiler For inactive:
- A first person shooter with a polygon-based 3d engine. (z80, will probably be recoded in axe using GLib) ON HOLD (screenshot)
 - A java MORPG. (pc) DEEP COMA(read more)(screenshot)
 - a minecraft game in axe DEAD (source code available)
 - a 3D racing game (axe) ON HOLD (outdated screenshot of asm version)

Just get the hot-pink 3ds. Problem solved.

Yes, 3DS can play all DS/DSi games. (Of course, excluding game features that used the GBA cartridge slot :P)

The only DS ones with GBA were the DS and the DS Lite, right?

Not true, the Original Gameboy had no backwards compatability (#Trollface)
