Can someone explain? Did the screen scratch?
>>
>>285445975
>>285445975
I've had mine since release and keep it on me every day, that hasn't happened yet.

Should I buy a protector?

I thought they put nub things to stop it

Lower screen's borders scratch the upper screen on the Regular 3DS.
>>
>>285446985
They obviously don't do jack shit to alleviate the problem, having the screens be two different sizes was a retarded decision from the start.
>>
It's sad that we have to apply a screen protector as soon as we open it. First thing I did after opening my MH4U XL was put on the Hori protectors.

It's like you don't want it to look brand new.
>>
>>285446985
>>285447021
The nubs are soft, if you put it in your pockets and you have really tight pockets (ie not cargo shorts), you can still end up scratching it when the nubs squeeze together.

If you plan on taking it with you places, your best bet is to get a soft cloth to place between when you close it.
>>
>>285447294
I asked for sauce: the pic on OP is of the old 3ds
>>
>>285445975
Stop slamming the DS closed and it won't scratch
>>
>>285447427
google 3ds xl top screen dots
>>
The nubs don't give much clearance, but the top and bottom screens never come in contact with one another. I don't see this happening unless you ripped the nubs out and slam the 3DS closed repeatedly.
>>
>>285447546
>3ds xl
that's not the new 3ds xl
>>
>>285445975
>>apparently still happens with N3DSXL
bullshit.

Only happened on the old model if you slam the system shut like a retarded child.
>>
>>285447818
the only thing stopping them is the circle bumpers so if they wear out even a little bit you will scratch the screens
>>
>>285447731
The N3DS uses the exact same nubs.
>>
>>285448063
sure it does
>>
>>285447963
Bullshit again. My launch 3DS / XL Are fine.

Again...
Only happened on the old model if you slam the system shut like a retarded child.

>>285448063
no it doesn't. im looking at them both now.

>polishing baby toys rather than polishing knobs

It's like you're happy being a gay faggot
>>
>>285447294
Why would you put it in your pockets?
Why would you bring your 3DS outside?
If you have to buy a bag or something.

Don't blame Nintendo for you being retarded
>>
>>285448301
lmao retard
>>
>>285448063
The nubs might be the same, but their orientation is different. The 3DS XL has the nubs rest on the outside of the lower screen bezel. The N3DS XL has the nubs rest ON the lower screen bezel.

Scratching CAN still occur, but only if the system is really getting pressed the fuck together, and vibrating violently. Get your shit a screen protector, but don't feel like it has to be be done immediately. The thing isn't going to scratch without some serious encouragement.
>>
>>285445975

Do not SLAM the CLAM

you can buff it out if you're careful
>>
The original 3DS was like a fucking prototype, terrible design and not well made.
>>
>>285446943
Unless you live paycheck to paycheck, there's no no reason not to. Good protectors (i.e. Hori brand or the like) are about $10 for a set (top/bottom screen).
>>
Bought n3ds xl
Keep in pockets all the time and it never happen to mine I even wear skinny jeans sometimes and hasn't happend to the new one
My old 3ds though did it though and it was a fuckin pain

>>285445975

generally this only happens to people who SLAM their 3DS shut.

Mine didn't have that problem until I started letting other people play my 3DS.

Why do people insist on slamming clamshells shut? It's like a fucking autistic urge.
>>
I never really notice it unless the 3D is on, which I never use anyways, so it doesn't really bother me

I bought a monster hunter 4 3DS satchel to carry my special N3DS. I treat it gently and don't treat it like a babies toy. Some of you faggots don't respect your stuff and it's mind boggling especially valuable things.

I'm sure that wasn't hard, but preventing a product from breaking due to regular use shouldn't require fucking DIY

>>285453082
>I'm sure that wasn't hard
Neither is not slamming your 3DS closed

>shouldn't require fucking DIY
My launch 3DS is fine. Not nintendo's fault people cant look after there shit is it?

Shocking how everyone that actually looks after their 3DS has no problems at all.
>>
>>285448145
>defending an obvious design flaw
Its a handheld system, its meant to go in your pocket.
Meaning it will get jostled around some, unless you keep it indoors and never take it anywhere.
Couple that with the shoddy hinges that allow the top and bottom to shift easily, and you have the very problem thousands of people were complaining about.
Don't act like its a non-problem, it was obviously big enough that nintendo addressed it in later revisions
>>
>>285445975
I have a friend who has the Majora's Mask 3D New 3DS and yeah he showed me the scratches.

What the hell Nintendo. Seems like they are getting lazier these days.
>>
>>285454953
They ran out of nintendium a few years ago after they stopped making wiis, they're trying to adjust to manufacturing without it
>>
>>285454953

Your friend slams it shut like an autistic retard.
>>
>>285454701
>it was obviously big enough that nintendo addressed it in later revisions
By making the 2DS so kids couldn't slam the 3DS shut

Funny how mine is absolutely fine
>>
>>285455172
No he closes it nice and easy. he even had that little foam sheet between the 2 screens when he closes it. Screen still got scratched regardless.
>>
>>285454953
>my friend

Why the fuck are you lying online? The screens dont even come into contact. Even while pressing down on the top its still hard to force the screens to touch.
So.. your either a billy bullshiter or your friend is a fucking retard.

Which is it?

Much in the same way your car tires will never go bald if it never leaves your garage

It's because most of /v/ is white. White people don't take care of their shit.

I get that too, but it comes off if you just wipe it. It's not that big of a deal.
>>
>>285455878
i use my 3DS all the time. I don't see your point.
>>
>>285445975
Damn, that sucks dick for you. I always clean my screen when I open mine so that doesn't happen. Your fault.
>>
>>285456013
It does scratch the screen over time.
>>
>>285455478
that doesn't even make sense you retard
>>
but doesnt putting a screen protector on the top screen screen ruin the 3d? My ambassador 3ds has that too, but not as bad.
>>
>>285455478
>Screens don't physically touch
>He even separates them with foam so they never actually touch ever!!
>BUT OMG NINTENDO THEY STILL FUCKING TOUCH REGARDLESS THE FOAM PROTECTING THEM THEY STILL GOT SCRATCHED REGARDLESS!!!!
Sure

I bought a piece of microfiber cloth for like a dollar at Walmart, that I place between the two screens whenever I'm not playing. That way my shit has no chance of scratching itself, and I always have a cleaning cloth on hand.

My screens are virgins, and have never actually touched eachother.

I also lucked out that the one I got just so happens to fit perfectly between the two screens.
>>
>>285454057
Eh its not always 100%. I look after my stuff with OCD levels of attention but my original model got those after about two years even with me being super careful and cleaning the screens regularly.
>>
>>285450539
Are you fat?

Guess your OCD isn't as OCD as you think. Because yours would still be fine.
>>
>>285457242
You don't need to do that
You see those two little nubs? They prevent that now
>>
Jesus Christ, Nintendo fans will defend anything. Like yes, you should take care of your stuff, but the screens should not be capable of scratching each other. I like the 3DS a lot, but this is a design flaw, you can acknowledge it is and still like the thing.
>>
>>285457506
No. besides you can't even see my face in that photo

5'8, 260lbs
>>
>>285458168
Sausage fingers say otherwise fatty
>>
What's worse is getting a bit of dust or something stuck in the top screen. Drives me crazy
>>
>>285457987

Even so, why the fuck would I even want to take that chance? The fact that it WAS an issue on previous models is enough to at least take some basic, nonintrusive precautionary measures. Not like like it's expensive or inconvenient. Better safe than sorry nig.
>>
>>285458264
it's the angle and shit camera
>>
I've managed to get 2 build quality issues in one picture.

This is the regular size N3DS.

I'm thinking of trying to get a replacement from GAME but I need evidence that this isn't normal really.
>>
>>285458168
>260lbs
jesus christ man what the hell
>>
>>285447023
It's not a scratch it's more like a "fingerprint" of the 3DS, just wipe it off.
>>
>>285458168
>5'8, 260lbs
Unless you're really ripped, that is obese you fat fuck.
>>
>>285458463
cameras and angles dont add fat..

Post a picture of your hand and prove your not fat

Okay fuck you. I don't work out nor do I look fat or even obese. You can't tell that from the numbers or pictures.

That shit only happened with the first batch of regular 3ds and was solved long time ago. Stop spreading missinfo.

Your picture shows your hand is pretty fat

>>285450539
This. i'm not saying nintendo aren't dicktards for making these that way but my god. You people see a problem and then decide thats just how its going to be. Fix that shit when you find out its a problem. There are so many variations and ways to fix it.

How is this even possible? If you look at the DS sideways when closed, there is a clear visible gap. See image.

The screens don't even contact each other.

>>
>>285458168
260 would be understandable if you were 6' and somewhat in shape, but you're a manlet with fat fuck fingers. You are like 125 pounds overweight for your height and build. That is, by definition, morbidly obese.

You better start working out faggot. please, for your own good.

>>285459176

Why are you so in denial about being fat anon? I'm fat as fuck and I don't give a shit because I'm confortable the way I am, and just work it. Granted it's easy for me to pull it off because I'm a cooking major, but still. If I was upset about being fat, I'd fucking go on a diet and exercise mlre to lose weight. I'm fucking lazy though, so I have no one to blame but myself.

Not that I'm 260 mind you, more in the 220-230 range.

Fat people who bitch and moan and are in denial about being fat fucks disgust me, and bring shame to big guys everywhere.
>>
>>285459176
I'm 6'4" and 230 from being lazy this winter. I would definitely be fat if I added 30 pounds, much less adding 30 pounds and losing 8 inches of height.
>>
There are literally people in this thread defending such a massive flaw.

You just couldn't make this shit up.
>>
>>285460658
Its a massive flaw but they fixed it with the New 3ds see here >>285459362

What annoys me more is the fucking dust and shit you get under the screen on all Nintendo handhelds.
>>
>>285459617
I did the "I don't look fat yet" thing for 3 years, and now I'm a fucking hamplanet

if I could've only had a fucking grain of selfworth back then

I can't kill myself but I sure would like to
>>
>>285445975
Just saw these on my 3DS XL, i've had it for about 3 months, and these are starting to form

How do I prevent this?

>>285459176
You'll never be good enough for him, until you get your hands on some crystals.

>>285461363

>>
>>285458168

I used to be 200 5'10" and I knew I was fat.

>>
>>285459176

Holy shit man, you're like 2 inches shorter and 90 pounds heavier.
