The power of the tabloids have been questioned anew, as Nintendo and other retailers refute The Sun's report on a massive Nintendo 3DS return.

The claim made by UK tabloid, , that the “has left thousands with dizziness and headaches” which led to “record return levels” is completely false, according to Nintendo, and — the three companies mentioned in the article. However, the companies did confirm that there were complaints and returns, but the numbers are only a handful.

According to Nintendo, the “recent reports are incorrect.” They further elaborated that “the number of calls and emails with queries on Nintendo 3DS is in fact well below the rate experienced during past hardware launches and having spoken with our retail partners there are only a handful of people who have actually gone into stores to request a refund.”

GAME also shared that they’ve “had less than five people complain that they feel sick and want to return [the 3DS].” It was also revealed by GAME that consoles that make a person ill cannot be granted a refund, only consoles with technical malfunctions can.

So let this serve as a caution to all, if you’re interested in buying the 3DS, make sure you test it first and figure if it’ll make you sick or not. Retailers are obliged to let consumers test the device first before purchasing, so use it well.
