    are they all sony fanboys?...or does the 3DS actually have a problem with it's 3D function?


    I'm definitely not a Sony fanboy or even a Microsoft freak...but with just these posts here (probably more)...it does raise some questions...

    if any temper on here has played the 3DS (or got one)...has it caused you headaches and problems described here?

    I call bullshit, I survived over 4 hours on the 3D with no problems. Weaklings who never played a video game for more than a hour.

    It's no surprise. Stuff like this is likely to happen.

    Also, they probably started playing it with the slider all the way up instinctively.

    This is why the 3D slider exists. If it makes your head hurt turn it down

    This, keeping the intensity at 1/2 is the best idea.

    Seems normal for people overestimating themselves.

    I wonder if they realize 3D doesn't always have to be turned on [​IMG]

    Common sense must have been seated at the back of the bus.

    It's Twitter. People complain about everything and anything no matter what.

    If you actually have a migraine, you're pretty much already not going to want to be playing ANY games on any system until it passes.

    Babies that need a bottle, they need to quit whining and use common sense. It's almost like they need Snookie to demonstrate how to turn the 3D off or turn the intensity down to a comfortable level.

    I'm sure they do, but the whole selling point of the 3DS is the 3D.

    This is why companies should NEVER do a "only 3D" type thing. I know Nintendo hasn't done it, but I'm just saying, 3D is a hit or miss. It fucks with people's visions. Not everybody is able to watch it with having no headaches afterwards.

    This is why I thought adding 3D to the console was a stupid idea to begin with.

    Funny how no one at E3 complained, but as soon a Nintendo started to warn about potential health issues a lot of people who got their hands on the 3DS after this, started getting headaches.
    In my honest opinion this is all placebo effect.
