The Sun: Nintendo 3DS making gamers dizzy

Yes I know, it’s the Sun and we shouldn’t be reading anything from them in the first place, but for those whom are interested, The Sun is making a claim that, “HUNDREDS of furious gamers have slammed Nintendo’s new 3DS console – for making them feel ill.”

The report appears to have arisen from a couple of tweets which was later drastically exaggerated to the hundreds by The Sun. According to Nintendo UK, not a single sole has contacted them regarding this issue and that if anyone is feeling nauseous from playing in 3D, they can easily tone it down or remove the whole 3D imagery completely.

“We’ve had zero calls on this issue in both the UK and across Europe since Nintendo 3DS launch,” a spokesperson told MCV. “It seems to have arisen from a few tweets and comments following the US launch this week.

“However if anyone in the UK is experiencing discomfort whilst playing Nintendo 3DS we recommend in the first instance they follow our advice.

“Each person is different and therefore we advise consumers that when using their Nintendo 3DS, they need to find the distance and angle that is most comfortable for them, and use the built-in depth slider to select the level of 3D they enjoy the most. The 3D effect can be scaled back or even turned off completely.

“Also, regardless of age, we recommend that consumers take a break every 30 minutes when playing in 3D mode. Finally, parents and caregivers are advised that children six and under should not use the 3D mode, and they can easily restrict the display of 3D mode by using the Parental Controls feature.”

So any readers here feeling dizzy?

    The odd unusual feeling after I've been playing for a while, but nothing to complain about.

    I'm getting more used to the 3d over time too. I was worried the 3D would completely boggle my eyes but I've been fine so far.
