Seriously: Nintendo announces new 2DS system

$129 entry level portable w/o 3D screen

There's a new handheld from Nintendo called the 2DS. It comes out on October 12 in red or blue, priced at $129.99. No 3D! Just 2D. It plays all currently available 3DS games, but doesn't have a screen that shows 3D.

You had better have some gangsta-ass pockets for this thing.

It comes in a slate-type form factor and has all the same hardware features as the 3DS (touch screen, controls, etc.), and still has backwards compatibility with all DS games. Wireless? Still good. Just not 3D. 

Nintendo will begin showing off the 2DS this October in a tour of malls across North America.
