Facebook page argue gamers to boycott 3DS launch in West
A group of people has set up a new Facebook page arguing the gamers in West to boycott the sale of Nintendo upcoming handheld 3DS when it releases next month.
“The Enough Project” has started the moment arguing that they are against the new handheld from Nintendo as it make use of conflict materials, further adding that developer is allowing people to die and suffer grave human rights abuses for the sake of video game console production.
A representative from the group said, “What I am asking you to do is to refuse to buy a Nintendo 3DS system until Nintendo announces plans to halt use of conflict minerals in production– and this can only happen through monitoring of trade systems,”
“I am not in any way opposed to the 3DS itself– I actually think it’s one of the coolest things I’ve never seen in person. But I am not going to be one of the millions who looks the other way purely for entertainment, and I hope you will join me.”
