    24 y.o. and I still get dizzy from the 3d... Best Buy had Pilotwing for people to try, I got on it and got off the game asap cause the game was making me dizzy... and it doesn't even look like 3d to me? I've kinda decided to get DSi XL if I can instead of 3DS...

    Have you ever had proplems with your eyes?
    Like do you need glasses?
    Thats gonna be the problem for me cause I need glasses to play a normal DS.
    Try the 3D halfway maybe? Not as much of an effect but the right ammount for your eyes to handle.

    Like most consoles on display it was stuck so I couldn't move it around, so not adjusting could've done something... also I wanted to try the 3DS, what's the use of the "3D"S if you don't use it lol...

    I have no problems with my eyes, actually... it seems like it's a hereditary thing in our family for the eyesight, everyone wears glasses except me. It's not 20/20 but i'm not blind either

    No need to get defensive. Clearly the OP wants a DSi XL, so it wouldn't make sense if he pre-ordered a 3DS.

    I was just stating it, that all. I was just trying to help out by saying there other stuff to the 3DS.

    Shouldn't this be in the 3DS section?

    If it was a demo station, you actually can remove it, although it's stuck on there very strongly.
    And remember: You don't need the 3D to enjoy the 3DS. And who knows, maybe if you lower the 3D setting, you may be able to find a setting that gives you a good effect while also not giving you a headache.

    I wouldn't go for the DSi XL since you can turn off the 3D part of your gaming on the 3DS. They mentioned in something I was reading recently that it isn't going to be necessary for the players to use the 3D if they don't want to and buying a DSi XL will leave you out of the loop on newer and potentially better games and other features.

    One person's eyes are most likely not going to be the same distance away as the next person's eyes. That's why the adjustable slider is there. I couldn't focus with it at the max setting, but at half way, it was perfectly fine, and I saw the 3D clearly.

    Yeah, the max setting is definitely overkill, I wouldn't advise it for anyone.

    umm I had the 3DS for 2 hours with max 3D on..no side effects felt and was just as comfortable as 2D viewing. [​IMG]

    Why didn't I get dizzy?? [​IMG] (nice to know how it feels cause I've never been dizzy in my entire life)

    It varies from person to person, I didn't get dizzy from the 3D at all but I definitely had a harder time swallowing the 3D effect at maximum depth.

    I get VERY dizzy (also sweating, nausea ...) playing Half-Life 1 and 2 (on some sections, canals for example) if I have default FoV (field of view), 70. If I set it to 90, like in other games, everything is OK.

    I hope it won't be the same on 3DS with 3D. I don't want to turn it off. [​IMG]

    i know someone who cannot see ANY 3D effects with the 3DS
    he said it doesnt make any difference to him whether he sets the slider to 2D or maximum 3D

    but yet he still pre-ordered a 3DS because of the other features it offers

    It was actually sufficient for me. It took a short Pilotwings and AR card session for me to get used to the 3D effect.

    OP: That sucks. But if you're not getting the 3DS because the 3D doesn't work for you, then it's fine, but it's like saying you're not getting it solely because of 3D and not care about other features and upcoming games.
