Nintendo 3DS Making Japanese Feel Seasick

I thought the only time I would ever feel seasick is while actually out at sea, but maybe I can experience that feeling again if I purchase a Nintendo 3DS. According to reports from a magazine called Friday, the handheld 3D gaming device is actually making a few users feel sick from use.

This isn’t too uncommon to hear a new gaming system making people sick. The Nintendo Wii seemed to put enough people in the hospital, after all. However, this is different because the Nintendo 3DS is projecting 3D images to users eyes for a prolonged time. It might just be users adjusting to the 3D images, but this has also been proclaimed a serious health hazard.

Either way, Nintendo now has now produced two game systems that are physically hurting people. What a streak! I wonder how long it will be before they create a game system that does far worse.
