    After playing Street Fighter and Pro Evolution Soccer Lee Price, 22, had an increased heart rate and blood pressure.
    Imagine that, videogames being exciting enough for you body to react.

    I think Lee's pulse rising with the mildest of exertion is nothing to do with the 3DS more that it appears he likes pies

    Heh.

    Playing it in a car would never be a good idea unless your body has strong resistance to motion sickness. It took me a couple of years as a kid to be able to read or play the gameboy in a moving car without feeling sick, but the symtoms eventually stopped. I tried playing the original DS in a car not long after it came out and I got motion sickness again (I'm guessing it's because it's two screens instead of one). I'd imagine trying the 3DS would be even worse.

    And do people actually regularly play them while walking down the street??

    As far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a ninja.

    Itís deeply irresponsible journalism to focus on this non-heart rate issue, when the issue of it making you go blind, mad and possibly paedophilic is so serious.

    paedophilic?

    But the new Pokemon game is on the old DS.

    The Sun also took a Jonathan Ross tweet about having a headache from excessive 3DS usage spectacularly out of context.

    On the other side of this, two experts from the American Optometrist Association say 3DS is harmless and can be good for kids.

    Doubt this will end up in the tabloids somehow...

    If you look at a 3DS backwards in a mirror you get a mesage from the devil.

    FCUTA!
