"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.
