back to article Nintendo trades blows with The Sun over 3DS returns

This morning saw Nintendo 3DS complaints reach a new low, after The Sun ran a story on the headaches and dizziness associated with the device. Nintendo has already hit back, calling the report "incorrect". The tabloid said "thousands" of users have suffered after using the 3DS and as a result, many retailers are offering refunds …

The sun should come in a 3D edition

To better contain the amount of sh1t it contains.

Simpsons did it

The Sun have done a number of "3D specials" over the years, I remember seeing a page 3 girl in 3D when i were a lad, probably around 1990. They gave away the red/green glasses with the paper.

Think they did it alongside the Channel 4 3D special a year or so ago too.

It does. It has thickness...

In itself, and its readership.

Strangely, their slightly chubby reporter's blood pressure and heart rate went up when he was walking about, as opposed to when he was sitting down resting...

Quelle surprise!

So poor people aren't allowed to complain about form over function. i guess if you can't afford to shop at Donald & H they deserve everything they get.

No, they can't!

Complaining about something that isn't broken because you have an "inner ear imbalance" is something that Daily Mail readers normally do, and now the Sun "readers" are doing it too.

"ere you are Wayne, more plasters for yer knuckles...."

Brighthouse have a lot to answer for!

Nice!

Ha ha! Look at those people, they haven't got much money, let's laugh at them from our ivory towers! Just because you don't have much money or many possessions you're not allowed to complain about something? OK.

Please note if you study the whole fiasco it looks like another case of The Sun stirring up trouble on a slow news day, not a bunch of "whinging nobs". Another iPhone/HTC type story, 6 gazillion units of X sold and dozen returns due to a small fault or product simply not wanted!

When I was a kid

I was told that staring at the Sun was bad for your eyes, not a 3DS.

Indeed

You should never look directly at The Sun. I find a sort of shifty sideways glance at Page 3 is more than enough.

Knowing their usual levels of scrutiny.

Someone probably googled 'nintendo headache' and didn't even notice most of the articles pointed to the ill-fated virtual boy.

Start with the assumption The Sun are liars, and go from there.

You've all got it wrong

Surely the highlight of the Scum (in these internet enabled times) is Dear Deidre?

It's like Jeremy Kyle in print.

If I want to see a pair of jubbs I'll turn on my internet connection.

WTF?

Surely this is a mistake

Since when does the Sun publish news?

The title is required, and must contain letters and/or fingers.

It makes me a bit sick to think in some way I may be defending the Sun but they did mention Nintendo's response in their article, I would personally like to see some numbers as a statement from Game saying "We havent refunded any 3DS's" makes me wonder if what they meant to say was "if you want a refund, JOG ON!"

I can't believe the 3DS is that bad, these people are probably the same that said Doom made them sick as it was too real!?!?! lol
