    Had my 3ds since launch and now the hinge seems louder (noisy squeak) when opening it. Worth the hassle of a return or think it'll eventually go away after more use? I dont really have a wobbly screen. If i shake the 3ds i can hear the noise but its not like im shaking the handheld while playing games. The issue doesnt really bother me but since there's warranty, i dont want it breaking further as time passes. any opinions?

    nm... turns out it was my clear case from priceangels that was rubbing against the 3ds and causing it to squeak. I did notice after using a protective case since launch that my top screen seems a bit more loose than usual.
