NEW YORK (AP) - Nintendo Co. is warning parents of children under 6 that they should not let them play with the upcoming 3DS, the highly anticipated handheld gaming system that boasts 3-D technology without the need for special glasses.
There is concern that watching 3-D screens could potentially damage kids’ eyes.
In a statement, Nintendo of America spokesman Charlie Scibetta said Friday that parents should use the parental controls on the 3DS to restrict access to the system’s 3D mode. The 3DS goes on sale in February in Japan and in March in the U.S. and Europe.
