    I really couldn't find anything for this at least with a poll.

    It easy for me to maintain, how 'bout you?

    I don't get reviews talking about how 'difficult' it is to remain in the sweet spot.

    For me, I tried an experiment myself and kept on shaking and tilting my 3DS when playing a game. To my surprise, I find the sweet spot very easy to control and the 3D was still there. Hence, I voted yes.

    You really do pick it up fast. It starts out awkward, but that "sweet spot" is the same 2D or 3D, so it sort of comes naturally

    Very easy.
    Unless I shake the system violently or turn it at a ridiculous angle, I don't ever loose the 3D.

    Like what the previous posters said, I agree no less. [​IMG]

    I tried numerous viewing angles, shaking and tilting my 3DS and still had the 3D effect. I tried massive button mashing when playing SSFIV and that rocked the 3DS, however the 3D can still be seen [​IMG]

    3D is easy to maintain as long as you have the brightness up enough when in a bright area, like shopping centres etc. If you use 3D with low lighting in those areas, you may experience ghosting, but we've talked about that in other threads, so I won't really bother to talk about it here [​IMG]

    Take it from someone who has lost an eye, 3D is something most people take for granted. Go as a pirate with an eye-patch on Halloween for one whole day (don't take the eye-patch off for any reason for that whole day. if you do, you fail. If you take the challenge, I'd appreciate a PM telling me of your experience. I'm curious about what other people think of their 2D vision experience, even though one day is hardly enough to incite the insanity I've experienced, but you'll still get a small taste) and you will definitely appreciate your ability to see in three dimensions. I think I lost much of my sanity in those first couple of years after I lost my right eye. There is a HUGE difference in the person I am now, and the person I was prior to August 1991. Let me just say, I am NOT a better person for the experience.

    When I lost my eye on August 13, 1991 (no, it wasn't a Friday), it took me about 2 years to learn to deal without 3 dimensions (backing up in a car was a freaking nightmare, I can't even explain it to you without you experiencing it for yourself, and that's just the tip of the proverbial iceberg; weird optical illusions, depth perception issues, all kinds of crazy stuff). I will NEVER get used to seeing in only 2 dimensions, I have only "learned to deal with it". That "learn to deal with it "as opposed to "getting used to it" argument got me $200,000 back in 1992 when I sued the company that cost me my eye. (please don't ask, it was an agreement that I never mention who I sued when I got the money. Too bad I pissed it away on videogames and other frivolous crap and now I have nothing. I was a right dumbass back then. I can only say that it was a car battery company)

    I don't know how it is for most people, but before the accident, eyesight was my "gift". I had 20/10 vision. What I could see at 20 feet, most other people would have had to be at 10 feet to see. I could instantly see the 3D images in those pictures that looked like static, I could instantly create that weird 3D effect by crossing my eyes while looking at a chain-link fence, etc. I felt like I was the god of sight, compared to what my friends said they could see, and compared to what I see now. The eye I lost was my strong eye too. The eye you close when out in bright sunlight is your weak eye, in case you didn't know. Having to close the opposite eye than I used to is yet another nightmare, and I have to do it even on a cloudy day now. Talk about the all-time biggest headaches I've ever experienced. It was the second worst experience in my life, the first is another story.

    I still actually have my right eye and can still discern some peripheral vision, but it is without a lens (focus) and an iris (light-filtering, the color part of an eye), not to mention having to suffer through the itching of 23 stitches (and explosions of pain if I tried to rub it) of a transplanted cornea (surface of the eye over the iris) in my eyeball, so all I see is a blur through it (the nastiest, most aberrant blur, you can't even imagine, a point of light looks like a comet with a huge tail), but I'm sure I would be amazed at the 3D effect that the 3DS creates. I know I would be able to tell you exactly what angles and distances killed the 3D effect. But alas, I now see in only 2D without much of a hope in ever seeing in 3D ever again (unless I hit the lottery or something and get that lens replacement surgery that cataracts patients get, which is something that the docs told me is quite possible for me to get (if I had the money) to restore my sight in that eye), so I can only envy the benefits of the 3DS's effect you guys take for granted.

    Yeah, I know, totally useless reply, but I feel especially talkative today for some reason. I haven't had any weed for about a month now, after having smoked about an ounce every two weeks for over a year. See what happens when I don't smoke weed? I need the Mary Jane to squelch the thoughts in my head, to keep me from thinking too much, to shut my ass up, to help put my ass to sleep (it's now five 5:30AM and I'm wide awake) UGH! Even beer doesn't help, it just makes me MORE talkative. Damn! Verbosity abounds! Sorry everyone. I can't help myself right now.

    God bless you if you actually read my recent walls of text, including this one. I guess I just have a lot to say, even if it's seen as rambling by most people.

    Let me tell yea, I'm grateful to see 3d even tho my eyes wasn't as good as yours.
    It unfortunate that that happen. [​IMG]

    Without trying to offend, your post seem like something we would write a essay on. [​IMG]

    You're right. I shouldn't take 3D for granted [​IMG]
    You've inspired me to be very grateful for both my eyes and their good health. And I will definitely love my 3DS a lot more now.

    Feel sort of bad voting in this poll after Raydar's post. But I've had no problems maintaining 3D with normal games.

    I don't run or jump around while playing on my 3ds, so it's easy.
