Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Apparently some "journalists" are still confused about Nintendo's handheld lineage

"There are now almost 58 million 3DSes out there across the world -- still less than half of the lifetime sales of the original 2DS, but more than enough to ensure your StreetPass gets some use if you into a big city."

Not sure if this is worse than the "journalist" calling the 2DS 2 Dees or the confusion between the Wii and Wii U.

That was the point of my thread.  The quote was from an engadget article.  I forgot to put quotes around it so let me do that.

No, he means that the actual journalist confused the terms and typed 2DS, thinking it was the DS. Awful journalism, yeah.
