Problem with 3DS Losing Focus

Postby VideoGameCritic » February 10th, 2017, 8:28 pm

I was playing Shantae Pirate's Curse on my 3DS and I noticed the 3D was periodically going out of wack. Even when I kept the system perfectly still I would suddenly see a shift from clear to fuzzy.

I think it might have been a combination of the particular reading glasses I was using and the lighting in the room. I'll have to experiment a bit but I don't think it's a problem with the 3DS. (which is the XL model).

Anybody else run into issues like this?

The New 3DS model handles 3D better than the original, but I've had this happen to me on occasion on both models anyway. I rarely even turn on the 3D nowadays because it almost never adds anything to the game and it eats up the battery quicker.

Well that sucks. I don't know if mine still works, because I don't think I've turned the 3D on in the last 2 years, even once. My 5-year old has a 2DS, and to tell you the truth, if my 3DS broke tomorrow, I'd replace it with one of those because they're cheaper and just as good for my purposes.
