Contrary to popular belief, the Nintendo 3DS will not cause damage to your vision, even with prolonged use. Parental controls should be used to disable the 3D effect for children under the age of 7, however, because their eyes are still developing.
Person B: Can I see that?
Person A: Sure.
Person B: *looks at the 3D screen* Oh my god, everything's popping out of the screen! How can it be 3D without me wearing 3D glasses?
PersonA: Uhh.... a bunch of things only a nerd would understand. *laughs*
The 3Ds just came out nearly a year ago, so it doesn't have at least 400 3Ds games. Some may think the 3D option is magnificent, while others will think the 3D is bad for their eyes.
Thus, a Sony Employee sued the 3Ds over the 3D screen. Since the 3Ds was not selling well, Nintendo decided to lower the outrageous price of $249.99 USD to $179.99 USD. Nintendo noticed how the sales increased.
The 3Ds also remade quite a few Nintendo 64 games, such as OOT and Star Fox 64. However, some gamers do not find this appealing. "Sure, the 3Ds made some classics, but nobody wants to play a 10 year old game," They said.
Gamer2: It just came out! It's called the 3Ds!
Gamer1: 3Ds? Does that mean it plays 3D?
Gamer2: Yep! It's so awesome!
Gamer1: Hey, I'm gonna go buy one!
As of, the graphics will likely be PS2/Wii no more than this.
It is said to cost 300$.
The 3D effect is supposed to be taken as a bonus not primarily for the games. Because gameplay matters.
