    This seems to move quite a lot and seems to move more on the left side as your looking at it. It's almost as though you can slide it up when wobbling it if that makes sense

    I have the black one also, bought from Play-Asia, and it wobbles as well. I think it's the design, and you shouldn't worry a whole lot about it.

    Maybe your right I saw a video on YouTube which wobbled about as much as mine and the end of the day off it gets worse that's what a years warranty is for or I may just swap out the hinges myself

    No need to read or comment then and this is about the new3ds so Nintendo could have tightened them and I had a dodgy one I was only inquiring

    just to clarify do you mean when you open the top screen 2 clicks it will wobble back and forth a bit, or do you mean the whole top screen shifts from left to right wobble ?
