Will The "D" In 3DS Stand For "Dizzy?"

dizzy3ds.jpgMany complain when they see a 3D movie in theaters that the effects give them headaches or cause them to feel dizzy. I've certainly been hyped into wanting this system as a DSi fanboy, but this is one area that concerns me. We've heard rumors before that the visual effects on the 3DS may cause gamers to become dizzy after playing the system for a bit.

The Magic Box has posted an article from the Japanese magazine, Friday, that a majority of those who have played the system at Nintendo's 3DS event experienced dizziness and other signs of eye fatigue. I for one, wonder how this varies from player to player and what other factors are at play here. While the 3DS has the option to turn down or completely shut off the 3D effects, it does sort of defeat one of the huge selling points of the system, as well as an element that adds to the higher price tag.

Check out The Magic Box for more details on this small article as well as scans from the issue.

Well, I'm certainly going to be putting this to the test on Wednesday. The event runs from 9am to 3pm, and I plan on playing the 3DS as long as I can. Whether that's because they have to physically remove me or my eyes melt out of my head, well... we'll just have to wait and see!

But seriously, I'm going to play every demo they have on offer, probably multiple times, so I figure spending a few hours will be a good gauge as to how long you can play before getting a headache. Although in all fairness, it won't be constant 3D because I'll be moving around from unit to unit, probably, and I also never have trouble with 3D in general.

I get headaches from 3D movies (and find the gimmick annoying and distracting besides), so I really doubt I'll be using the 3D functions of Nintendo's new handheld. For me the selling point is the Gamecube-quality graphics on a handheld system, not the 3D.

The fact all these articles conveniently come out mere hours before the big 3DS promo events amuses me.
