Talk:Nintendo issues warning for the upcoming 3DS

Title

I'd say the article title is somewhat misleading. Nintendo issued a safety warning for the 3DS, that is different from labeling it "dangerous." Also, it's the 3D mode that may not be suitable for children. They can play the console in 2D mode with no risk beyond playing any other handheld. Trainer-c 02:38, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

I think this page should be renamed for neutrality or accuracy, if anything else. And also, the title doesn't mention that it's actually the 3D mode that's risky. --Turtwig Lover 12:02, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Demographic

Parents, if you think a delicate electronic device costing hundreds of dollars is the perfect gift for your kids aged 6 and younger, then you deserve the blowback. But the kids don't. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest 08:55, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Agreed. I lol everytime i see four year old kids messing and showing off with the DSs they got from birthday without even knowing what they are doing in the game; while others work hard for one. These grow with absolutely no valuating to money. --Lucastcorrea 23:47, 4 January 2011 (UTC)
You know what I got for my fourth birthday? A Crazy Daisy. That means I got to run around outside and have fun with other kids, while absorbing sunlight. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest 08:11, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Successor

Why does this article state that the 3DS is "the fifth in the DS range of consoles."? This is incorrect. Nintendo has stated many times that the 3DS is not another revision of the DS. It is the true successor. It will be the first video game system of the 8th generation of gaming.--IlikeBacon16 14:34, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

I agree to the face that the 3DS is a successor to the DS, but it's still in the DS family of game systems. Similarly, the Game Boy Advance was the successor to the Game Boy Color, and the Game Boy Color in turn was the successor to the original Game Boy, but they were all considered to be part of the Game Boy family of systems.

3D Parental control

You should mention that parents can prevent 3d from being turned on for the younger ones. Source - Vhayes1992 17:27, 4 January 2011 (UTC)


Three million sales

What, what? The total worldwide sales across all DS models are 135.6 million, with with sales in NA at 49.3 million. Source Wiseblade 18:38, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

No wonder I thought that that number was fishy. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest 08:12, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
