    Got it in the mail today from Amazon. And I love everything about it! I haven't got any headaches from the 3D all the way up like I thought I would. I want to know how to retrieve my friend code though. I don't have any games for it so I was wonder if I have to have a WiFi game to see my friend code or not?

    Make sure you are connected to the internet, then make a mii using the Mii Maker. After that click on the small orange happy face at the top of the bottom screen, its the friend's list. U should see urself as online and ur FC is there too

    What?....

    Or maybe he just doesn't get headaches from the 3D at all...

    I have played around ten hours of gaming with the 3D in the last three days and felt absolutely nothing...

    agreed. I've even played the 3DS while i was feeling tired and drowsy, just to see if it effects the eyes in a bad way or gives a headache, and i can verify that it has no negative affect.

    I think the reason so many people think that this thing is a headache machine is cause of the vocal minority. The people with problems are talking non stop about it and the people not having problems are too busy enjoying the awesomeness to say anything. That's why you see so much more woe and doom than praise.

    Excuse me... the awesomeness is calling me back, I have an afro in Face Raiders to pwn.

    I will admit I get headaches with the 3d control all the way up... The main thing people misunderstand is that they think the 3d all the way up makes it MORE 3d when really all it does is create more seperation between the two images (okay okay... yes that's kind of more 3d, but it's not necessarily natural 3d and it can end up being harmful to your eyes).

    You really should just have it where it's comfortable, just a little below the half way mark is perfect for me. Absolutely no strain on my eyes and a very nice and noticable effect.

    That's what I thought! I was messing with the slider though and I can hardly tell the difference between all the way up and in the middle. So I'll keep mine in the middle just to conserve battery.

    Just FYI, the position of the 3D slider doesn't have any impact on battery usage unless it's all the way down where it turns 3D off. It doesn't take any more battery power to render the second image closer or farther from the first.

    Approximately 15% of people experience side effects from 3D.

    If you're getting headaches, you may need glasses, or to get your prescription checked.
