    And yet kids can go to the cinema and watch 90+ minute 3D films without breaks...the fuck? Are Nintendo just covering their backs with this one?

    This is pretty messed up. People won't take breaks every half hour. And tons of kids 6 and under will want to use it.

    Yes. Just look at the health and safety screens on their current consoles. They're covering all the angles. "Take a break every 15 minutes", "may induce nausea, disorientation and seisures", "children should only play under adult supervision", "play in a well lit, well aerated room", etc. etc.

    I think it has something to do with the 3DS tech that creates the '3D without glasses' effect. The way it manipulates your eyes may have something to do with the quicker tension and faster need for a break.

    If anything, I'll probably just turn off the 3D effect.

    sounds pretty legit to me nintendo did something similar with the wii also telling you to take breaks every hour. There is also some people that cant handle 3D plus we have to remember this is new tech all the kids that go see 3D movies are also wearing the glasses this has no glasses.

    Don't all the current game manuals tell you to take a break every hour? Recommended rest periods are nothing new...

    You'd be surprised at how many brain cells it's killed.

    Well, if you still had enough to comprehend numbers.

    This remind me of another system they made once before, what was it?
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    At least unlike that piece of crap up there, this one has the option to turn the 3D off.

    Is anybody surprised? Really? I mean.. Come on.. 3D. It should be common sense that it's going to fuck your eyes more than usual.

    Just to forthcome suing etc. I never take that break NEVER did before too. I play sometimes 24 non-stop(when my parents are not at home and I am alone for a whole day. Some people have faster issues then other people. I lived my WHOLE live with Nintendo´s, I played to much. I am addicted to my games, gimmeh games or Ill kill you NOW!

    And @ineap09, Just try it 3 times. If you get tired, then your marathon is lost, BUT NO give up yet! We have 2d MODE!

    I guess they're covering all angles.. If you wanna play long you should turn 3D off at the start of the session.

    Don't take this comment as a fanboyish one, or one that's trying to glance over the obvious issue of 3D causing eye strain, but i'm really not considering the 3DS due to the 3D effect at all. I'd say that effect is actually very low on my list of reasons to want it.

    No, i'm considering the system due to the game lineup. Analog control will be great too. The pretty graphics are a nice touch as well. But i'm sure that if my eyes started hurting at all, i'd disable the 3D without hesitation. It might be the major selling point for the system, but it's not why i'm interested. Heck, i might just play the thing with the 3D effect turned off most of the time (depending on how well it works for me).

    So i can't say this "news" really bugs me personally. I mean it's obvious that this will be a blow for some people, but considering i was never THAT interested in the effect itself, it won't affect whether i purchase the system.

    (3:06:41 PM) Slacker: at the worst, you might be temporarily nerfing your depth perception, which does bear some caution
    (3:07:08 PM) Slacker: (don't watch a 10hr 3d movie marathon, and then immediatly try to drive a race car)
    (3:07:17 PM) rydianmorrison: Or have sex.
    (3:29:31 PM) Slacker: 3d TV: The new excuse for finding the wrong hole.
    (3:30:04 PM) Slacker: and Nintendo isn't actually worried about the kids, they just wanted an excuse to forbid whiny 6yr olds from standing in line

    The 3D viewed in the cinemas isn't stereoscopic or parralax (used in 3DTVs and 3DS respectively). It's far less eye tiring and easy to view, the difference is that the one in the cinemas uses 2 different projectors projecting at different polarizations and polarized lenses in the glasses to view each image specifically to one eye. Parralax and stereoscopic have more of an unnatural or dynamic way to produce the 3D image therefore tiring the eye.
