3DS not for under sevens
Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime has said that whilst there are no known health issues surrounding the 3DS technology they will be advising that the console will not be suitable for children under the age of seven.
Prolonged use of the device may cause nausea and headaches but Fils-Aime assures Nintendo fans that they have been working with experts in the field and there are no health concerns surrounding the 3DS.
Fils-Aime told Kotaku: "Nintendo 3DS has no health issues.We are working with the experts in the field, weve done extensive testing. We have a legacy of bringing only the best and finest products to the marketplace."
He did add: "We will recommend that very young children not look at 3D images. That's because, [in] young children, the muscles for the eyes are not fully formed this is the same messaging that the industry is putting out with 3D movies, so it is a standard protocol."
