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...

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)

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

  • Shape @ Shape:
    Very astute observations, but you failed to take into account people like me who prefer devs to take their time despite longer waits and really, really dislike the suboptimal approaches many studios are taking with game development in this day and age. Catering to the customers with impatient impulses for instant-gratification is a super-profitable business strategy in the short term, sure, but it is an untenable business strategy in the longer term simply because you cannot guarantee you can produce a quality game in that timespan repeatedly. Therefore, you will have to abuse your workforce or partake in other inethical practices in order to compete in the marketplace and remain profitable.

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Not really a fail the general public just doesn't know how to wait I don't see what faster transfer speeds have to do with that
    +2
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    That's why GTA games are so great because they have that 5-10 year wait and most new sports games are updated roasters they can't really do much improvement with them because not much their is to improve but on the other hand you get a new cod game every year and it makes millions per year so why stop the cash flow if people are dumb enough to buy every new game peryear
