You have face-tracking and eye-tracking 3D, the new C Stick for advanced analog control, ZR and ZL shoulder buttons, and much improved processor making the New Nintendo 3DS XL a much faster system when it comes to loading games and apps.

Take a look at the Sea Green color of the Nintendo 2DS, the first Nintendo 2DS with a white-colored face and rear backing! Definitely a unique look for a Nintendo console with the Sea Green color, this one is a little harder to find than the red and blue versions. What do you think of it?
The Nintendo 2DS is compatible with all Nintendo 3DS and most Nintendo DS games, and provides access to the Nintendo eShop, with digital games, free demos, and special offers. You also get wireless connectivity for multiplayer and co-op play. You can pick up the Nintendo 2DS on Amazon.
Nintendo's newest, more subdued handheld is next in the Gear Live’s 2014 Holiday Gift Guide. The Nintendo 2DS is basically a Nintendo 3DS in a candybar form factor (no hinge so it doesn't close) that plays all 3DS games in 2D. At launch it will be available in red and blue hues, and is outfitted with the regular (not 3DS XL) sized dual screens, cameras, mono speaker, headphone port, and a 4 GB SD card. In other words, it's just like a Nintendo 3DS, except there is no 3D, and it doesn't close, and you get it all for $129 - $50 cheaper than the 3DS console. You can pick up the Nintendo 2DS now for $129.99.

If you haven’t picked up an Xbox One yet (or, if you need an extra one for the bedroom,) next week will be a great time to buy. Microsoft is running a promotion from September 7 through 13th where buying an Xbox One at participating retailers will include any free game of your choosing that costs $59.99 or less. Yes, that includes Destiny, Bungie’s new title, which drops on September 9. That’s a nice savings, since you’ll probably want at least one game to play on your new console anyway. Speaking of which, the offer applies to Xbox One bundles as well, so if you buy the Xbox One Madden NFL 15 Bundle or the Forza Motorsport 5 Bundle, each of which already comes with a free game, you get another free game of your choosing on top of that.
Today in the Gear Live Deals Shop you can enter to win a Sony PlayStation 4 Battlefield bundle. You can't get better than free, so this is our Deal of the Day.
Aside from the actual PlayStation 4 console, you'll also walk away with two wireless PS4 controllers, and a copy of Battlefield 4 as well. Ready to enter? Go get it:
Microsoft surprised the gaming world this morning with the announcement it will sell the Xbox One without Kinect for $399 starting on June 9th in the U.S. This brings the price of the Xbox 360 in line with that of the PlayStation 4, which should bring the two consoles into even more heated competition.
An odd move (though some might say it was expected in order to compete,) since the company wouldn't stop talking about how essential Kinect is to the Xbox One functionality and gaming direction less than a year ago. I guess Microsoft has been feeling the heat if the PlayStation 4 sales, and had to adjust that strategy right quick.
Nintendo has announced a new Yoshi-themed Nintendo 3DS XL console that's set to launch in conjunction with Yoshi's New Island on March 14th. The console is green, and features Yoshi running, being followed by a Yoshi egg. It should be noted that the console doesn't come with Yoshi's New Island as you might assume--that'll cost you a separate $39.99 if you want it. The 3DS XL itself will cost $199.99.
What do you think? Are you gonna pick up the Yoshi-themed 3DS XL? You can pre-order it now at Best Buy.
