Nobody's Calling Nintendo UK With 3DS Dizziness

Not everyone can stomach 3D like a pro. Some gamers might feel dizzy or even ill. According to British tabloid The Sun, "HUNDREDS of furious gamers have slammed Nintendo's new 3DS console - for making them feel ill."

Nintendo's UK office is denying this, reports website MCV. "We've had zero calls on this issue in both the UK and across Europe since Nintendo 3DS launch," a Nintendo spokesperson told MCV. "It seems to have arisen from a few tweets and comments following the US launch this week."

Nintendo once again stressed that the 3D effect can be turned down - or even completely off. Nothing's being forced down anyone's throat! If you can't take the 3D effect, switch if off. I haven't played anything in 3D for weeks, and I've been enjoying my 3DS just fine.

    Whinging poms...

      Looks like one racist didn't read the story.

      It's actually about how no poms whinged. And about the accuracy of articles in The Sun.

        A: "Poms" aren't a different race
        B: Settle down?

        But all in all, anyone who trusts The Sun for articles is crazy!

    Kotaku has misunderstood. The Sun isn't a newspaper.

    Its a gossip mag and should be treated as such.

    It actually does surprise me that nobody's complained (apparently) to Nintendo UK yet. They're probably all busy complaining to the games shop themselves.

    Articles like this in the Sun make me ashamed to be British - when working for an estate agent I've been on the wrong side of the British media - they fabricated a story, my manager gave a statement and they misquoted it in order to further their story and sell more copies.

    And yes, calling the Sun a newspaper is giving them too much credit. FAR too much credit. As Edward Thompson-Durie said, they're a gossip mag. With a bit of porn thrown in.
