So apparently Nintendo has been saying that kids under six shouldn't use the 3D on the 3DS:
I doubt any parents will bother heeding that message, and considering how many young kids play DS now, I can only foresee a grim future. Hopefully their concerns will prove to be overblown.
Though the question becomes, what was Nintendo thinking? They of all people should have a good idea of who their audience was going to be.
What about 3D movies?? Half of the ones that come out are kids' movies. Nobody is panicking about that.
I have a feeling this issue is being hyped up too much. Doesn't this happen with every new technology that comes out? Somebody claims it's dangerous and the fears are never really justified.
I don't know the specifics of how the 3D works or looks on the 3DS, but it doesn't use glasses, which makes it different from watching movies.
Well, not a problem except for the whole "little kids shouldn't be playing video games." Another warning many parents ignore anyway.
