London, March 31 (ANI): Japan-based Nintendo’s new 3D console, which was supposed to provide gamers with a mind-blowing experience, has only succeeded in giving them a headache.

Hundreds of angry users have complained that playing on the 3DS makes them feel unwell.

The handheld device was launched last week to huge fanfare in Britain, Europe and the U.S.

But gamers, some of whom queued overnight to become the first to own it, are already reporting side-effects including dizziness, nausea and headaches.

“Warning to everyone, if you’re already ill and have a migraine, DO NOT play the 3DS with 3D on. Urgh,” the Daily Mail quoted one Twitter user as saying.

Another gamer said: “The 3D gave me a headache, so I hated it.”

However, even before the console was first launched in Japan in February, Nintendo issued a health warning, stating, “If your physical condition worsens or you become ill, please stop playing at once.” (ANI)
