Nintendo World 2011 ended not too long ago. And while we came out with some great information and footage, those who attended may have come out feeling sick.
According to Japanese magazine Friday, participants of the show were having trouble with the 3D effects. Many players they interviewed started feeling dizziness after just ten minute of gameplay, and some significant eye fatigue. While they were looking forward to checking out the 3D effects, they unfortunately had to turn them off.
While no one is still one hundred percent certain what sort of effects 3D could have in the long run, Nintendo has been shouting that 3DS’ 3D visuals shouldn’t be viewed by children six and under. Not your problem? Well, British eye expert, Richard Pakey, claims that 3D effects may be a problem for all of us saying, “There is a grey area surrounding the potential eye health issues caused by 3D, this is concerning ALL age groups, not just under 6 year olds.”
Only time will tell if these side effects are a big concern. If 3D becomes more mainstream, we will probably get more answers to our questions in terms of health issues.
