Does anyone know if viewing the 3d in the 3ds is like looking at 3d pictures(those pictures that are patterns that reveal an image if you sort of look past the picture)? I takes me a few seconds to see those images and it usually strains my eyes and my biggest fear is that I will have trouble viewing the 3d effect or not be able to see it at all. Didn't someone say like 10% of people can't see the 3d effect of the 3ds or something?

As far as I know it doesn't work like that. Those work by having 3D images carefully coded in them, whereas I think the 3DS works by directing half the light from the screen to each of your eyes. Also, that "10% can't see 3D" statistic refers to all 3D, so that's 3D movies etc, not just the 3DS. I would guess that if you can comfortably watch 3D movies you'll be OK.

I was worried about being able to see the 3d in movies, as one eye is very very weak - I can barely read using just that eye, even if the object is held up close - but I can see it just fine, so fingers crossed its the same with the 3DS.

If not, its not a dealbreaker, as the 3d is still a novelty rather than a neccesity.

Those kind of pictures has got nothing to do with 3ds.

From my time with the system there's little strain involved, you don't have to focus on the screen or anything. I think that some people may have intentionally straining thinking they had to. In fact I think a good thing to do is start at 2D and then move it up whilst playing.
