Putting Health Warnings On Force Feedback Game Controls

from the damn-that's-a-lot-of-game-playing dept

Doctors are saying that health warnings should be put on game controllers that have “force-feedback” mechanisms – the ones that shake while playing a game. Apparently prolonged (and we do mean long) exposure to such devices can cause all sorts of medical problems – similar to people who use industrial tools for too long at a time. I think anyone who’s spending that much time playing video games really needs to get out a bit more anyway.
