    I'm completely aware 100% that it is totally normal, and they are manufactured this way.
    I was just wondering if anyone has come up with a solution to remedy this.

    It just bothers me, I love how the dpads are on the ps3, snes, etc. They're stiff, rigid, and act like you'd suppose a d-pad would act.

    This one rattles, and can move side to side, etc.

    same here, i think the majority of the 3ds i own have this kind of issue except the first gen O3DS. You just need to get used to it. :)
