    My N3DSXL fell out of my shirt pocket, and the back plate broke around where the two screws allow you to remove it. So, there's nothing but tape holding it together. Do any of you know where I can get a new one that's not so flimsy?

    Unfortunately, the Game Stop where I live doesn't sell them.

    I would suggest checking online before checking local stores. I know the stores in my area sometimes get them in, but they aren't special order. Most of the they get them when someone trades in a broken system and they just sell it for parts.

    I was afraid of that. Oh, well. I will go looking after I get paid. Wish me luck!

    Seriously though, why are they flimsy? I get that they'd want you to be able to remove it, so that you could get to the SD Card slot. If a good back cover meant paying more for my N3DSXL, I would have.
