They announced the Nintendo 2DS today. It's out on October 12, it's entry-level (meaning cheap - $130), it plays all 3DS and DS games but has no 3D functionality, and it's one solid piece (meaning no hinges - it doesn't fold up). From the pictures, it looks... kind of awkward and ugly. Both Joystiq and Penny Arcade Report felt the need to mention "this is not a joke" so I will too: this is not a joke.

Mario Party: Island Tour and Zelda: A Link Between Worlds are both coming out on November 22.

I think it is ugly too.

Are they thinking of making something like a tablet in the near future? Because that is what this object reminded me of. Also, forty dollars isn’t enough of a price cut to tempt anybody to buy this small ugly thing.

The 2DS is one of the stupidest things I've ever seen in ages. If the 3D is such a big problem, turn it off.

Its easy to find 3DS systems on sale - just go for that instead.

Oh, and forget this system if you haven't played Phantom Hourglass. :-(

Actually if they had this version a couple years ago I would have considered it for my son instead of the others. No hinges, means harder for little kids to break it. No 3D to worry about password protecting. When the original 3DS came out we bought it and then realized it's bad for kids under seven to view 3D, so this would be easier in those cases.

Seems like this may be made for the younger set.

I'm going to go out and pick up an adapter tomorrow, preferably with a game as well. What should I pick up? Considering I'm buying the adapter at the same time, I want a game that makes awesome use of the online experience.
