It’s been a month since the official launch of Nintendo 3DS in Japan. As a newcomer, things usually goes pretty smooth. However, it seems the trend in Japan is slighting dimming off. The prove is the boatloads of second hands or used Nintendo 3DS have been found selling in Japan store. We are not sure what has happened, however, it seems the Nintendo 3DS is pretty buggy since it is pioneering a new 3D display technology. Some users in Japan has reported to experienced dizziness after short play time with the 3D feature turned on, but I believe it’s not solely because of that.
There is also a saying that Japanese people were just curious about the 3D effect on a handheld console. After tested and got bored with it, they sold it and save the money for the upcoming NGP from Sony.
However, it’s still too soon for us to make any assumption. Perhaps we should wait for few more months before judging further.
