    Looking at the 3ds xl screen protectors on play asia and there are two

    Pitahari Filter

    http://www.play-asia...en-70-52fx.html

    Liquid crystal filter

    http://www.play-asia...en-70-53av.html

    Anyone know what the difference is?, as it doesn't say on play-asia.

    Looking here http://www.hori.jp/p...l/3dsll_filter/ and here http://www.hori.jp/p.../3dsll_pfilter/, it looks like the pitahari one has an anti-reflective layer, but is that it? The broken English of google translate doesn't really help.

    Thanks.

    One's inner self
    i see no reason why you would need a top screen protector as the screens touch in no way with the XL
    on mine the 2 screens have a decent gap even with pressure applied

    but if your really set on getting one

    Pita-hari Filters give more of a Matt effect to a screen to reduce shine
    but as 3DS XL has a glare reduced screen i would see no reason for it

    Liquid crystal are more of a shiny screen protector but are normally a more screen like feel to them

    Don't want the top filter, only a protector for the touch screen, but unless I missed it when looking, Hori only sell them as sets. If the only difference is the anti-reflective layer on the top screen, then I'll just grab the cheaper liquid crystal one as I'm only use the bottom one anyway.
