3DS

Eye specialists speaking with the New York Times have issued a statement saying that Nintendo is over-dramatizing the whole situation with these warnings about the 3DS…

“The fact you’d watch 3-D in a theater or a video game should have zero deleterious impact whatsoever,” – Dr. Lawrence Tychsen, a professor of pediatrics and ophthalmology at Washington University in St. Louis.

“I don’t think that parents need to worry about kids playing video games, 3-D or otherwise, from a vision perspective. The bigger question for parents is: Do you really want your 3-year-old playing a video game?” – Dr. David Granet, a pediatric ophthalmologist at the University of California at San Diego

Well… I guess they’d know better than me! My guess is that Nintendo is just trying to cover themselves in case something does go awry.
