Sony has just updated some product disclaimers for the PS3 now that it’ll be able to play 3D games and movies once the firmware upgrades are pumped down. From the looks of the warning I’m starting to wonder if 3D is a good thing after all. I loved “Avatar” in 3D, but I must admit after watching it for awhile your brain and eyes do feel like they’ve been put in a blender, so I can’t imagine how I’d feel after a 5 hour game session.
This is a great reason to hold off on jumping on the 3D at home bandwagon. Until companies like Sony can make the technology glasses-less, and less invasive on your brain, I’d stay away. It’s only a matter of time before some little kid starts bleeding from their eyes after watching Shrek 3D for the 20th time, and the parents sue 3D’s ass into oblivion. Check out the warnings below, and let me know when you’re ready to start vomiting while playing your favorite games. You’ve been cross-eyed…

“Some people may experience discomfort (such as eye strain, eye fatigue or nausea) while watching 3D video images or playing stereoscopic 3D games on 3D televisions,”
“SCEA recommends that all viewers take regular breaks while watching 3D video or playing stereoscopic 3D games. The length and frequency of necessary breaks may vary from person to person. Please take breaks that are long enough to allow any feelings of discomfort to subside. If symptoms persist, consult a doctor.”
