In a recent article, the Wall Street Journal shed light on the potential harm of Nintendo’s upcoming handheld. Nintendo’s head, Satoru Iwata recognized the previous Nintendo 3DS health risks, and stressed that it’s not a dangerous product.
“We are being proactive about informing our customer, even though it may not necessarily be positive for our sales,” Iwata said to Japanese newspaper Nikkei. Iwata stated the warnings are more of a “precautionary measure” for future users, and surprisingly admitted that it may help quell future lawsuit attempts.
In Nikkei’s interview, Iwata claims that there will be 1.5 million 3DS systems in Japan during the month of it’s launch. Nintendo plans to ship 4 million units by the end of its fiscal year this March, worldwide.
