The Sun is officially obsessed with trashing the 3DS

Did Reggie Fils-Aime murder the family of somebody at The Sun? Today, the British tabloid has published its third article designed to badmouth the Nintendo 3DS, this time putting it through a rigorous "test" to prove that it makes you sick. 

In the article, "Game For A Barf" (cute), subject Lee Price played Street Fighter IV and Pro Evolution Soccer for two hours, taking the recommended ten minute break every half hour. According to the results, ascertained by rent-a-doc Carol Cooper, the session ended with Price feeling nauseous, suffering a headache, and boasting a dangerously high blood pressure. 

At first, I was unsure how much The Sun was embellishing with its 3DS stories, but having published its third article on the same subject, seemingly as vengeance for retailers and Nintendo being able to refute all of the paper's previous claims, it's become quite clear the publication is pursuing a vendetta. 

Stay classy, Sun. You're always a credit to British journalism.
