    I noticed last week that my touchscreen is dented, due to light reflecting strangely, there is also a small gap where the dent is and the side of the plastic.
    I have no idea how it got dented, especially as I don't exactly smash my stylus down, and if I did, it wouldn't be at the very bottom and upper right hand side.

    Can't really take pics because my only camera is a DSi and it can't pick it up.

    Anyone else's 3DS like this?

    That sounds strange and I'd urge you to contact Nintendo support to take this matter further.

    Yeah, it shouldn't be dented. When you look at any DS's touchscreen, the reflected image should be clear, and the screen should be flat.
    _

    Now that I'm looking at mine, towards the bottom, there is a small dent. Never noticed it. Not sure if it's supposed to be like that. When I look at my screen, everything appears normal, except it is a little diffused there.

    It doesn't affect my playing though.

    What's strange is that when I do, I get errors when sending it, the support ticket I mean

    Warranty by receipt to me is illogical. The ink fades away after MONTHS.

    Serial Number is better at least.
