@pb: "Watching a 3D TV can reportedly cause “an epileptic seizure or stroke,” and the following symptoms should be watched out for, “(1) altered vision; (2) lightheadedness; (3) dizziness; (4) involuntary movements such as eye or muscle twitching; (5) confusion; (6) nausea; (7) loss of awareness; ( convulsions; (9) cramps; and/or (10) disorientation.”
Then there is the “motion sickness, perceptual after effects, disorientation, eye strain, and decreased postural stability,” and possible “damage [to] your eyesight.”
Yep. 3d tv. Worth it. So very very worth it despite all of this.
You, sir, are as paranoid as Sheldon Cooper. The exact same thing is said of ordinary video games due to light sensitivity conditions. The 3DS will not burn away anyone's retina. It will
irritate a small minority of people in the same manner that small screens period, and video games period, do. This isn't even exclusive to electronics; some people can tolerate reading in a car, and others cannot. Whether you have previously demonstrated sensitivity to one particular light/motion condition doesn't say how sensitive you will be to another. Common sense mandates that for the sake of one's health, one must pay attention to their body's own signs regarding individual tolerances.
That is why the 3D can be turned off (well, that and it forbids over-the-shoulder viewing, I guess).
The SOLE reason to buy a new console is because it is more powerful and replaces the preceding one for all newer game releases. Gimmicks like touch screen and 3D are just additional selling points. So why can't people just want the 3DS because it's a more powerful DS that will be having all new games on it?
This. You know why I bought a DS? Because it had [tornado fang]ing SUPER MARIO 64 WITH YOSHI IN IT
. That's it. I did not give a rat's ass that it had two screens. The touch screen was neither the savior nor death of gaming. It was just some nifty extra.
The 3D has me intrigued. But if ViewMaster gaming makes me nauseous, and I have to shut it off, then even in 2D it'll still be a new, powerful Nintendo handheld with a kickass game selection.
I wanted 3DS because of Kid Icarus (and so many other games)! Legends 3 made me love the 3DS even more than before~
Same. Watching the trailer again now.
