    eBay and Amazon don't really have a great selection, different colored stock imitation pens and pens with charms on them.

    In fact i'd appreciate a couple of good sites that sells lots of unique 3DS XL accessories, I'm not knowledgeable in the ways of e-shoppping other than the basics.

    here you go. i cant think of anything else the 3DS needs becides a grip, a speaker woulld be nice,, buut theiirs none released yet.


    heres a simple cover, its made of clear, hard, bendable, rubber.

    heres a nice case/cover that is plastic with a brushed aluminum coating.

    i wouldent recommend third party styluses unless its from a reputable brand name, like PDP or madcatz, becauuse cheap styluses will scratch the sh** out of your screen, but if you insist heres some cheap styluses, youve been waned.

    There probably won't be any specifically released for the 3DS, because every set of stereo speakers that uses a 3.5mm headphone connector will do.
    One with its own battery or own power cord would be preferred since 'lol battery life'. Ones that run off the 3DS's battery will probably sound relatively bad.

    I have something I could add to this, but I haven't tested if it scratches the screen or not. For once I have a relatively perfect touch screen so I'll test it out and get back to this.

    Ok, so I've had a chance to test what I used-to use on my DSLite on my 3DS. I dunno about the 3DSXL, but I know the 3DS has a much firmer touchscreen than the DSLite. Because of that I believe some things that would scratch up DSLite screens will not scratch up 3DS screens, but I can't be sure with anything but what I tested.
    So, the main event...
    I have one of these. I use the .7 refill it came with, except I put a hole in the ink tank and drained it out with water, pulled off the tip (white plastic) to clean out it with water too, and proceeded to write with it on paper until i was sure it was empty. I tried using it on my DSLite for a while but I think it either scratched the screen or wasn't working well because of the gel-ly soft screen. It seems to work pretty well on my 3DS and has not left any marks on the screen. If you end up not liking the gel-grip it has you could always try the standard case. I haven't tested the micro (.5) tipped refills because I actually use them, so I can't say how those will work, but .7 seems to be ok, and won't scratch the screen unless you're pressing hard.

    If you're looking for something that's supposed to be a stylus, but is relatively unique, I'm not sure where to point you, as all the capacitive styli that I've found have that silly broad rubber tip on them, and all the ones for the DSes have the same semi-translucent hard plastic tip on them. Though I should note the stylus's form can also make a difference in how much you want to use it. For example I dislike the standard DSLite and 3DS styli quite a bit, but enjoy my Zekrom white stylus quite a bit as well.

    This is probably the most unique you'll get out of official styli, but I don't know where to find it or how much it cost since it was a pre-order bonus for okamiden.

    also small bump because my other post isn't showing up in my post history, and if this is like other forums I've been on, edited in quotes don't alert the person quoted.
