Nintendo 2DS XL Price History

I’m a big fan of Nintendo and I’ve probably had most of the versions of the DS by now! I will say that the Nintendo 2DS XL is one of my favourites (if not my favourite). What I like about it is that it will play all my 3DS games in 2D format, which means my daughter can have a go. I’ve never let her play 3D games before because I don’t think kids are supposed to play or watch 3D content while they’re still little.

Comparing Versions

The Nintendo 2DS XL is a lot different from the original DS XL which is good because I wasn’t completely happy with mine. It has a bigger screen (4.88 inch compared to 4.2) and it’s a lot lighter (260g compared to 314g). I would say this is probably a mixture of the 2DS and the 3DS XL. It has the folding design of the 2DS, but the same SD memory (4GB) as the 3DS XL, so it’s a good compromise between the two. I will say that the big bonus of the 2DS XL over the 3DS XL is that the 2DS XL has a built-in amiibo reader.

Other than that the 2DS XL is pretty much the same as the others in terms of features and functions. The resolution is the same, the 256MB internal storage is the same, and the 0.3 megapixel camera is the same. Honestly I would have thought maybe this would have been improved by now but it’s not needed.

Using the 2DS XL

The Nintendo 2DS XL is the most comfortable to hold and use of all the DS systems to date. Despite its size it’s very lightweight, but it’s also very robust and seems very durable. I have no problems letting my daughter play on it. The lower touchscreen is fast and responsive, I have no issues there at all, and battery life is OK, I get about 5 hours continuous. The stylus is a bit small for an XL version but not problematically so. I also think the speakers are in an awkward position because my hands partially cover them during gameplay, but my daughter doesn’t have the same problem with her small hands.

Design

The design of the 2DS XL is very nice. There are two options, a black and turquoise option which I what I chose and a white and orange option. Both are nice. I think my daughter would have preferred a bit more choice in colour but it doesn’t make any difference to the features or the experience as a whole.

Downsides?

The only thing that does bother me really about the Nintendo 2DS XL is that the screen is really reflective to the point where I’m not comfortable using it in very bright areas. It’s a shame that there is no anti-reflective coating on the screen. I think Nintendo need to have a word with Apple because the anti-reflective coating on the iPad Pro is excellent! That is the only downside I have about this.

Worth It?

Yes! If you’re not bothered about 3D gaming on the DS (honestly I think it was a bit of a gimmick!) then the Nintendo 2DS XL is the best device in my opinion. The price is very attractive and if your kids want to play 3DS content without the 3D aspect then the Nintendo 2DS XL is the system that you need.

Nvidia Shield Tablet

The Nvidia Shield Tablet is a distinctive looking, powerful Android slate that possibly marks the beginning of a new kind of gaming. It kicks ass, both a kind of console and a tablet. Hot property.
