The Nintendo 3DS Makes Children’s Eyes Explode


?Or something like that. That’s why they don’t recommend any children under the age of 6 play the upcoming 3DS. From Kotaku:

The company notes that 3D has different effects on different people.
The inclusion of the 3D slider, which allows players to tweak the 3D
effect helps ensure that a wider range of players can enjoy the 3DS.

However, children under six years old will be included in that range.
Nintendo points out that the vision of young children is still in
developmental stages, which is why it recommended that they do not use
the 3DS’s 3D effects as well as watch 3D movies and 3D television.

Viewing 3D at a young age could have effects later in life.

According to Nintendo, “Since the Nintendo 3DS can be changed to 2D
to avoid any effects on young children’s vision, it is possible for
anyone to enjoy playing it.” But not of course 3D.

So I think that’s fantastic. Remember back in the ’80s and ’90s, when adults thought videogames were hurting kids with their bright colors and lack of physical activity and outrageous violence? And now Nintendo is making a handheld console that can actually DESTROY CHILDREN’S EYES. To the point where they’re actually warning people that THE NINTENDO 3DS DESTROYS CHILDREN’S EYES SO THEY SHOULDN’T USE IT. And no one appears to give the tiniest shit. Awesome.
