What color should I get? And what accessories? I like keeping my devices in somewhat good condition and I thought the screens are quick to scuff as opposed to tablet and phone glass screens.

Ape Escape is notable as the first video game to require the use of the Dual Analog Controller for gameplay.

honestly the screens are ridiculously resilient. Nintendo has always made amazingly durable handhelds, which makes sense if you look at the target audience. I know that the 3ds at my local gamestop has been up since release....and there are ZERO scratches on the screen.

I have the Blue bundle with Mario Kart 7.

I don't know that screen protectors are really needed.. I guess it depends on the game. I have MK7, RE:R, Paper Mario, and a few Professor Layton games so far.

If you plan on paying games that relay heavily on the bottom screen, like Theatrhythm for exxample, then I could see the need.

I'm using these on my 3DS XL right now. to answer your question.. absolutly! :). they're just as good as any other screen protectors on the market. non-adhesive meaning they will NOT leave behind sticky residue and there's no weird visible tint present once installed. i love these! :).

They are "Insten" brand sold by eForCity, a company with very good feedback. i also orded a couple packs of screen protectors for my newly aquired DS Lite by the same company. no worries and they work great!.

Here are a couple YT reviews on the Insten brand protectors:

Yes,I have these (and this brand) on my 3DS, 3DSXL, and PSP. They come off easily if they need replaced, dont leave any sticky on the screen, and are easy to install.

If you care about your machine, get screen protectors. I didnt even play my 3DS or XL before I had installed screen protectors because the screens will get scratched. Even a small or light scratch is still scratched and this is an inexpensive way to avoid that.
