    I think i would buy this instead of a 3DS. Don't really care for the 3D popping out. However, I have no reason for one. Not going to buy one for A Link Between Worlds. Not a Pokémon guy either.

    My last handheld was a standard DS ages ago. I played it regularly then, but I dont have time now! Plus whatever time I do find the games on my phone suffice. So cant find a reason to justify the 2DS XL right now.

    The 3D is awesome technology, but it impairs framerates so significantly that I would never bother.

    I've always thought it was a cool concept but I've hardly found myself using it.

    I've been knocking around ideas in my head for what to get the kiddos this year for Christmas. I bought them tablets a few years ago but they're outdated now and rather slow. A buddy of mine suggested a handheld system so I looked them up and for $199 (locally) I can't really complain about the price. My son is all about Pokemon, any suggestions on where to start him at? I played the original when I was a kid but since then I'm way out of touch. Haha.

    Also, other than Pokemon, are there any decent games for young ladies?

    for me, the 3D feature of the nintendo 3DS is useless, so the 2DS become a better choice
