Yahoo is hardly a bastion of well researched journalism, and their latest video from ABC discussing the new 2DS and Wii U price cut show just that. Or should that be 2Dees and Wii?
Yes, it seems as though – as you’re able to see in the video below – that they think the newly announced 2DS is named “two dees” and that it will play the same games as “the three dees” with lower resolution graphics, where in fact it’s named 2-D-S and will play the same games, with identical graphics as the 3-D-S, just without the 3D, hence the name.
They go on to say that the Wii is getting a price cut rather than the Wii U – either they’re just mixed up or reporting something several years later. Perhaps there are mixed messages about Nintendo’s naming systems?
This isn’t sending a very good mainstream message out for Nintendo – you can bet Yahoo get a lot more views than an article on this very site would.
Nevertheless, we can have a bit of a laugh about it.
