Nintendo 3DS dropped by online retailer Amazon

Amazon has removed the 3DS from its US store after a number of customer complaints

The Nintendo 3DS has been dropped by Amazon in the US with the glasses-free portable 3D games console described as ‘Under Review’ by the online retailer.

Whilst Amazon.co.uk continues to stock the 3D gaming device US gaming fans turning to the online outlet to purchase the portable Nintendo console have found themselves facing no official listing for the 3DS.

"While this item is available from other marketplace sellers on this page,” the Amazon listing reads, “it is not currently offered by Amazon.com because customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it's described here. (Thanks for the tip!) We're working to fix the problem as quickly as possible."

Having launched in the UK and US in March, the Nintendo 3DS faced a number of issues around its release with health concerns surrounding the device’s glasses-free 3D party piece as users reported feeling nauseous, dizzy and suffering from blurred vision having used the device.

Has the Nintendo 3DS lived up to expectation or fallen wide of the mark? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds and vote for the 3DS as the Gaming Gadget of the Year in the T3 Gadget Awards 2011.
