Nintendo Warns Parents Not To Let Children Under 6 Play 3DS

A note on Nintendo’s Web site says that children under the age of 6 should not play its upcoming 3DS console, at least not in 3D mode. The warning says children’s eyes at such a young are still developing, and that it wouldn’t be safe to subject them to the 3D effect generated by the 3DS. Of course, youngsters are still welcome to play the 3DS in 2D mode. But where’s the fun in that?

The rest of the note contains the same warnings we’ve seen with other 3D gadgets: don’t sit there all day long looking at the screen, give your eyes a rest every once in a while, etc. Nothing too out of the ordinary, to be fair.

In other 3DS news, a juicy little rumor suggests that the 3DS will be bundled with The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time… well, the other way around—Ocarina of Time will be bundled with the 3DS.

I think we all can agree that would be pretty great.
