Nintendo’s 3DS Warning: Children, Avert Thine Eyes

Nintendo has issued a warning for parents of children under age 6: If you’re planning on giving the kid a Nintendo 3DS when the device is released early next year, keep it in 2D mode. The 3DS is a portable video game system capable of displaying 3D games without the use of special glasses. However, the warning urges parents to use the 2D feature of the device instead if their kids are less than six years old.
