Nope, the $109.99 at BB is the usual price point. Considering how hard it is to find a 3DS right now it's a pretty good deal, if you don't value the 3D feature.

Yup, and at least from the photo this looks like the older package, that comes with pre-11.0 firmware. - I was wrong, I had the colours mixed up. It's black-front/coloured back that comes with pre-11.0 firmware.

Crimson red is also in stock and on sale: http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/nintendo-2d ... hrelevance

Man still holding out for another <$80 "sale" again like last fall when The Source had them. $100 isn't bad, but it's certainly not hot.

Source has it for $109.99, sign up for email offer of $25.
Brings it down to $85.

Just wanted to add my two cents, I have a 2ds since launch and I really like the form and handling of it. I've also had a 3ds since launch, and the 3d feature is not missed. They are well made and solid feeling. If it's for a child, the lack of a hinge is a plus as that's generally the first thing to break.

Whats the performance like? I've read that the New 3DS models fixed some perf issues with the original 3DS, does the 2DS suffer from them also?

This is on 11. I bought one awhile back.

Really happy with the machine. Very comfortable to use.

It also works as a great portable retro device. You can play almost all Gameboy / Gameboy Color with the homebrew GameYob emulator. Snes9x works pretty good with 75% of the Super Nintendo library. The other emulators I've tried weren't very good. There's also quite a few virtual console games in the shop that work even better, but 2ds doesn't support the SNES titles. Playing through Mario Picross right now - 10 hours of fun puzzles for 4$.

The main fix with the New 3DS is the head tracking for the 3D mode, which is *much* better than the old 3DS. Not an issue for the 2DS though, obviously. New 3DS also has a slight bump in processing power too, which makes some older games load up a little bit faster, and has also made a couple of games (Majora's Mask and Xenogears) exclusive to the New 3DS.
I'd say if you don't care about the 3D, or those two exclusive games, you won't see much of a difference at all.

I've not noticed any performance issues with either. New 3DS might be a hair faster when playing standard games, but it's main benefit is that it has an NFC reader and can play the "New 3DS only" games, of which there are not many. (And likely will not be any more as they have announced the end of support for the 3DS line altogether.) *edited for wrongness ^_^

I think there will be some new cheaper 3DS models coming - following up on the $139 Christmas/Black Friday deal.

It is odd how few 3DS' are around right now..

When did this happen? Do you have a link?

Here's the last thing I heard about it:
3DS has a long life in front of it. We’ve already announced games that will be launching in the first couple quarters of this year. There are a number of big games coming. And in our view, the Nintendo 3DS and the Nintendo Switch are going to live side-by-side.

Nintendo has never announced this.

Even though Nintendo has said that 3DS will go side-by-side with the Nintendo Switch, they said the same thing for Game Boy Advance and DS. Hardware and software production certainly has slowed to make way for the new console. If you're buying a 3ds or 2ds now, it's to enjoy the many amazing games made in the past. Not for the very few games coming in the future.

You know, my son reads gaming news all day long, so when he told me this, I didn't question it. I googled it myself, and there's just rumors. So no, it's not discontinued. My bad.
They are likely testing the waters though and if switch takes hold as a viable portable alternative, they may decide that there's no reason for them to have two competing consoles.
I hope they keep the 3DS going for a long time as I have no plans to pick up a switch until the price hits the sweet spot and comes with a game that I'm into.
