Nintendo issues age warning on its 3D games

Nintendo issues age warning on its 3D games
Dec 30 06:55 AM US/Eastern

Japan's Nintendo has issued a health warning over the 3D function on its
upcoming gaming console, recommending children aged six and under do
not play with it to prevent damage to their eyes. At a promotional
event near Tokyo in January, "we will offer 2Ds alone to children aged
six and younger as continuing to watch 3D images for a long time could
negatively affect the development of their eyes," Nintendo said. The
new-generation DS console -- which enables users to play 3D games
without special glasses -- missed the Christmas season but will be
released on February 26 in Japan and in March in the United States,
Europe and Australia. Nintendo is to hold an admission-free three-day
event in Chiba, east of Tokyo, from January 8 to let gamers try the new
console ahead of its launch. The Kyoto-based company issued the caution
in a message posted on its website to those who plan to try the 3DS.
Nintendo noted that experts say 3D images -- not only those of the
Nintendo 3DS but also those in cinemas and on television -- could
affect the development of vision in small children.

For three years I worked at Nintendo and the only useful thing I learned the whole time was be sure to eat the mushrooms.
