I breathed a sigh of relief when Nintendo President, Satoru Iwata announced that the upcoming 3DS handheld console would support the option to switch between 2D and 3D.
The 3D gameplay can easily be switched off, which is good to know seeing as I always get terrible eye ache when watching a 3D movie or game for a long period of time.
This will also reassure worried parents, who feared that long exposure to 3D games would have a damaging effect on the development of their children’s eyes. Now they have the option to switch it off!
The full console will be revealed at next month’s E3.
