    Nintendo has pre-empted a potential issue with the 3DS system – even before the Nintendo 3DS release date. Eye advancement in kids might be hurt by the Nintendo 3DS. The system could stunt proper eye advancement in young children. All 3-D systems have this eye tension issue. This isn’t unique to the 3DS; but the Nintendo announcement is unique. Article resource – Nintendo 3DS eye strain may be dangerous to children by MoneyBlogNewz.

    What the Nintendo 3DS eye tension is about

    On Nintendo’s website, a warning was posted. Apparently 3DS eye strain is possible. Dizziness, seizures and nausea can take place when looking at the 3-D systems for too long. It is even bad to have 3-D systems used for long periods of time for small children. Eye advancement might be stunted. For a long time, the brain focuses on two different images by force. Soon, the ability to look at one image with the correct depth perception is lost.

    Nintendo 3DS difficulties to repair

    Within the United States, the Nintendo 3DS release date is getting closer. You will find recommendations Nintendo has for parents when getting it. First, the business suggests parent’s limit their kid’s playing time to no more than an hour a day, with breaks after 30 minutes. One feature on the 3DS is a password protected 3-D function. The password has to be used before the function can be turned on. The medical industry has offered several warnings about 3-D televisions, movies and systems, warning that those with eye difficulties or those who are intoxicated should not view 3D images for an extended time period.

    Nintendo 3DS losing revenue before even starting with eye tension

    Some have suggested that warning about the 3DS eye strain issue just before the release date could kill the $300 machine. The Nintendo warning might be good for marketing though, in accordance with public relations consultants. The user guides of TVs will sometimes have warnings about watching 3-D televisions for too long although it won’t be anywhere large. Do you think the Nintendo 3DS eye strain warning is going to kill sales, or will it continue to improve the revenue of Nintendo goods?

    It will probably hurt initial sales, however it should minimize the damages from potential class action lawsuits.

    Score 1 for the Big N.

    I am going to go out on a limb and say that Nintendo probably realizes that the “moderation”, in most cases, isn’t going to happen.

    Not when you make your consoles more addictive than crack

    Ya know, there are epilepsy and other warnings on all of your other video games, too. When was your last seizure?

    It is nice that the 3D function can be turned off then. Just hope that a game is not released that the 3D function is mandatory.
