I am looking to buy a games console for my son (6 Yrs) and having no experience of these I would appreciate your advice. I have looked at several like the 3DS, DSi etc.. I am overwhelmed..please help!! What would be the best purchase for a 6 year old?
I would like to buy a DS for the first time my 8 year old daughter that will last and be compatible with games for some time but I do not want 3D function as she wears glasses and has been told not to watch 3D movies as it will further damage her eyesight. I think you can turn the 3D function off this one but does anyone know which would be a good alternative? Please get your children's eyesight checked regularly if they are using 3D as it can damage it.
My only concern in recommending 3ds is that it really is too good for children to appreciate.You can however disable the 3d if you want to.The 3ds is backwards compatible with existing ds and dsi games,and looking forward there will be no shortage of games or apps for it.
