    Hi, I have a brand new XL, when the power saver mode is OFF, 3D is ON, and it's UNPLUGGED, brightness on 5 (full,) when I touch/drag things in the lower corner, my stylus dragging gets extremely jittery. When I turn the 3D off, the jitter is gone. Power saver ON, no jitter. Brightness below 5, no jitter. Plugged IN, no jitter. Can anyone else replicate this ?

    Anything dragged in any situation in the upper right quarter of the screen does not jitter.

    I'll make a video if requested

    Same here on a European 3DSXL
    Tested it on my brothers normal 3DS and it did not have the same "issue"

    Look at the Flag...
    If it does it only on a specific mode, it will certainly be fixed on a future firmware update.

    I forgot
    ^^ That's it? Just a tiny little jiggle? I fail to see how this is a problem.

    It's really not a problem =p
    Unless the reason behind the jitter is maybe that the 3DS screen drains to much battery that makes it jitter or something?

    Imagine in a game like colors and you are painting and that same jitter effect happens. You are not going to like it :P

    Why do you waste your time finding rediculous things like this? Makes no sense...

    Anyway, recalibrate your touch screen.

    I don't think its calibration problem since:
    1. I have tried it already
    2. It's not only one 1 console
    3. its only on highest brightness and with 3D on so it can't be calibration problem.
    It's not really like I will have any issues myself though since I never have the lighting on max anyway.

    nothing is wrong, i think that is from holding the stylus between two touch points on the touch screen, if you understand what i mean.

    would always screw around with that on my 3DS.

    And I fail to see why you needed to write that. If I had spent £165 on a brand new console I too would be annoyed at something like this.

    yuyuyup, try using some other things for a stylus to see if that makes a difference.

    Try calibrating.

    If no avail and if the thing still bugs you, send it in to Ninty.

    If problem STILL persists, email Ninty and it will very likely be fixed in a system update.

    Or you can email Ninty straight away.

    The jiggle is barely noticeable. It happens on a lot of other touchscreen devices, so I fail to see how this is a problem considering it has to be under very specific circumstances and, until someone can confirm, this wouldn't affect gameplay in most any game available right now.

    I don't see how you would even notice that, or notice that the 3D, power saving mode, and AC adapter have an effect on it.

    I wouldn't even worry about it.
