    What do you mean by broke off? Mine pops off, and you can just snap it back on.

    Pictures maybe?

    If you mind the backplate being weird, then you are screwed.

    warranty does not cover accidental damage but at least its still playable
    I knew someone who had the top screen broken because the 3ds fell and he had to pay 80 pounds to them to fix it but you could just replace the cover yorself since its not major damage

    Cant you just unscrew the screws that got left behind and just buy a new backplate or did the 3DS's screw slots get stripped?
