Retailers shoot down claims of 3DS returns prompted by headaches

A report in tabloid The Sun of the 3DS making headaches in "thousands" of users is just plain untrue according to Nintendo, HMV and GAME, the three entities the paper mentions. Nintendo said returns are "well below" other hardware launches and GAME says less than five people have complained that the portable made them ill. In fact, you can't even return something in the UK because it made you sick.

HMV admits some 3DS systems have been traded in for store credit, but stops short of copping to "thousands." Sheesh, what is this world coming to when you can't even trust the tabloids?
