Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

Nintendo 2DS Has One Large Screen, Not Two

Posted on Thursday, August 29 @ 06:43:55 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Contrary to what you might think, the newly announced 2DS actually features a single screen, not two individual displays. 

According to USGamer, Nintendo opted to go with a single touch screen and split the display into two with plastic casing. Since the entire screen is touch, the top half is covered by a protective plastic sheet.

This is clearly a move by Nintendo to cut down on manufacturing costs, as creating a single screen is obviously cheaper than building two into each device. Again, this only serves to reinforce the fact that the 2DS is clearly designed to appeal to a younger market and recoup the losses Nintendo is facing with each sale of the Wii U.
