Im getting rather sick of the 3DS scratching its own screen

i wasted 20 bucks on that pathetic excuse of a site, decalgirl so i can try and get a good screen protector to prevent the 3DS from scratching itself, but it was trash and i wasted money and im still having the issue...i dont really wanna waste another 20 bucks attempting it, and it was incredibly fustrating trying to apply it. im very annoyed right now, how could nintendo overlook such a glaringly obvious flaw as the 3DS scratching its OWN top screen with the bottom, or the circular pad leaving a circular smudge on the top screen that you have to continually wipe away? by far the most aggrivating hardware ever... i feel like i haveta give it life support with third party batteries and protectors and stuff just to get around the obvious design flaws. anyone else mad about this, or do you not care? i dont mind the fact that theres few games to play i dont even care that i got screwed out of 80 dollars, but i do care that i haveta modify the hell out of the hardware just to make it feel worthwhile to me.

yup because little tiny marks that are easily removed are such major issues

How the hell is it scratching it's own screen? What the hell are you doing to make it do that?

simply leaving it closed in a power a case, nothing more.

Why is it a big deal? As long as it's a small scratch,it shouldnt be a problem.

Is the power case squeezing the unit together? Mine doesn't scratch, but basically just stamps the oils from my hands on the bottom screen to the top when gently closed. I believe the issue is avoidable by keeping your hands clean while playing the 3DS. The issue does seem to exist with some people though, so it is a legitimate kind of design flaw it seems.

Your 3DS is probably emo

im mainly aggrivated because of trying to apply a decalgirl screen protector (to the outside edge of the screen) and it was extremely fustrating! i ended up ruining the only one protector i wanted, the upper screen and got pissed and threw it all away. wasted 20 bucks

All 3DSs do this. You're in denial. Tons of topics about it. Open and close your 3DS over the course of a couple months, let me know what happens to the top screen without a protector.

You dont have some special 3DS that doesnt have this issue, ALL of them do.
