    There are some differences between Sony's and Nintendo's implementation of 3D, so who knows. But odds are the technology is safe but not recommended for over use.

    I'm sure somewhere someone, is gonna have a seizure while playing DDR 3D and then someone is gonna get sued.
    This always happens they will find a link, just like they found a link to cellphone and caner, (killing bees) etc.

    I am suspicious of the contrary evidence, especially due to a lot of articles talking about the negative impact of 3D. Of course, not only the validity of one of those articles has been called to question, but I also shall not deny the possibility of the "not harmful" article being valid.

    Not overusing something like the 3DS is like to tell a fat kid to stop eating for a day (bad example, lulz). Point is, people are going to overuse it, so might as well find more reliable sources regarding eyesight and nausea for 3D.

    The problem with 3D is that your brain gets used to only using stereoscope to determine depth then it gets a bit confused when you start back in the real world where it looks for other clues. As long as you're not staring at it for prolonged periods of time when you're 1 or 2 you should be fine and your brain will just readjust itself

    And too much TV will ruin your eyesight (and the radiation will kill you). And the computer screen will ruin your eyesight. And reading will ruin your eyesight. So yeah, 3D will ruin your eyesight too. Why not.

    3d is 3d whether it's using a game or watching a movie both give the SAME results. ophthalmologists are only testing it on kids? try testing it on older people 25+ and see what results they get! oh but i'm sure all you KIDS think 3d is the best thing ever to happen to gaming well that's all who will end up using it no one else give 2 shits about 3d.

    I'm sure I'll be fine. All those years of masturbating have left me immune to eye strain.

    The thread is about whether you get permanent (yes, I italicized, underlined, and bolded that so you may actually read it for once) damage from watching things in 3D, ie your brain turns to complete much from playing a 3DS for 100 hours. Getting a headache is a side effect for some people (again, underlined, italicized and bolded so you actually read it) and isn't actually gonna be permanent damage. Hell, you get a headache from watching a normal movie sometimes. Thinking a trained medical professionals word is "BS" because you get a little headache from watching a movie in 3D (a headache that's a completely temporary side effect) is wrong is, in fact, BS.

    Jesus Christ...

    oh it will be permanent 3d will fuck your eyes if used a lot as long as you have to wear ridiculous glasses. your eyes have to adjust to using the glasses and when you take them off they have to adjust back to normal do this a lot and it will fuck your eyes there's no doubt about it. you get headaches when using 3d as a warning their telling you your eyes do not like it my eyes are already fucked and when i use 3d it makes them worse.

    Am I going to take the opinion of some random guy from the internet who can't even type correctly or that of a medical professional whose specialty just so happens to be in eyes?

    Again, Jesus Christ...

    Joke's on you: he already has glasses. Lololol.
    Anyways, the effects can vary. Some people, despite what they do, will not have their eyesight deter. Others are more sensitive, so I think it could work both ways.

    I suggest increasing the size to 7 as well.


    I'd pretty much thought that there wouldn't be permanent damage caused by this. I'd imagine Nintendo might research the possibility before coming this far.
