Got this from the GAME store August 2011 brand new, use screen protectors and an aluminium case to protect the console. I'm guessing this crack formed from the case snapping shut. I never leave the system open, I always close it, but it seems the force of it snapping shut isn't dampened enough by the rubber pads which tries to absorb the shock? Anyone ever seen this problem? Not really sure what to do next, a cracked case usually means we've either thrown it or dropped it, although there's absolutely no damage to the area, it's scratch free and there's no marks of any kind, so it's obvious it hasn't been dropped if GAME or Nintendo try to question it. What would you do? I thought about buying 3DS housing and just replacing the top part of the 3DS. Cheers.
