Does the regular N3DS leave screen marks like the 3DS did?

    I know a vast amount of regular 3DS users had this issue and still do which is caused by the lowers screen. So I was wondering do the two rubbers they introduced on the top screen of the N3DS help at all with the well known issue?

    I'm not sure about the N3DS, but I think you should have had a screen protector and decals on your system - makes it look nicer and protects it.

    Actually I've got the same marks on my 3DS XL (not New3DSXL) with Hori screen protectors on it. The marks are only in the screen protector and not on the actual screen. Afaik the XL shouldn't normally suffer from these marks but the screen protector does make the screen slightly thicker which could explain my case...

    I haven't noticed any on my N3DS XL yet, but the first thing I did was put screen protectors on it, so...

    I might actually buy some screen protectors. Anyone know a good EU based eBay store that sells 3DS stuff?

    If you close the unit nicely u won't have issues with getting the lines on the screen.
    Amadren had a XL just like me but i never had issues with the lines cause i closed it carefully.

    Take care of it and you won't get any lines on the screen. (haven't used screen protectors either)

    I've had this issue with a regular 3DS and a 3DS XL but the one I have now has a screen protector on both screens to be safe

    Maybe you're right but when you have 4-6yo brothers, you can't have an eye on it 24H/7d :P

    Anyway, I was closing it carefully but I can't exclude that my younger brothers weren't closing it carefully ^^

    Yes. But think twice! Imagine when you put it in your pocket. It'll make a pressure between the 2 screens and probably scratch them. I don't know if the rubber actually prevent from it but I would recommand you to buy a screen protector.

    I don't have one on my N3DS and I take it everydays in my pockets. It's not scratched so... I dunno.

    Screen protector would be great but if not then get a microfiber cloth and put them inbtw the screens. And never put the XL in jeans. I've had a bag for it so i didn't have any problems.

    I haven't had any issues on my N3DS, but on my old one I was able to just rub them off with my thumb - No screen protector. Wasn't a big deal for me and I never really noticed them until about an hour into gameplay haha.

    I always experience the analog nub rubbing a circle on the top screen of my original 3ds. I could rub it off though

    Nothing out of the ordinary of the new 3ds xl yet

    I just popped on two small googly eyes on mine to give the top screen a little breathing room. Was the cheapest method I knew of. :P
