    It's been well over a year since 3ds's release in all regions. Where the hell are the replacement cases? I'm aware of the fact that the 3ds is a pain in the ass to assemble/disassemble, but there is definitely a market for these things.

    I've seen one company with them for sale, but they are launch colors and cost close to $50.

    I wish a company would take my money. :ninja:

    If not replacement cases, replacement parts at least.
    Seeing as many people are destroying their circle pads/screens/etc...

    Didn't we start seeing DS Lite shells after EVERYONE, bought aleast 3? Maybe we'll start seeing them when it gets more sales or about one and a half years.
